What happens to workers with long duration workers’ compensation claims when their workers’ compensation benefits stop? 


This is the central research question in the Transitions Study, and is partially answered in this report. We describe use of Centrelink benefits (social welfare payments funded by the Australian Government) before and after cessation of workers’ compensation income support payments (administered by the New South Wales state government) in two groups of workers with long-duration claims, in comparison with a group of community controls.
