Currently receiving workers' comp benefits, can I still receive workers' comp once my job terminates me?

Asked over 5 years ago - Houston, TX

Will my worker's comp benefits end when my job ends? I am still under my
doctor's care and received notice that my contract will not be renewed after May.

Additional information

Can I continue to receive worker's comp after my job ends?

    Answered . If you are receiving benefits under a Texas workers' compensation claim (not an employer benefit plan) then you are covered for life. Even monetary benefits will continue after your termination, assuming that you are still unable to earn your pre-injury wage due to your injury.
