Policy Purpose

If a worker or a worker's dependants are entitled to compensation benefits and the worker has a committee of his or her estate appointed under The Mental Health Act, the WCB will pay the benefits to the appointed committee. However, when no committee has been appointed under The Mental Health Act and a worker or the worker's dependants are entitled to compensation benefits, benefits will continue to be paid to the worker or the worker's dependents.
