I got hurt on 10/03/11 at work in PA, 30 days later my ex-employers ins comp denied me, I've spent the last, almost 2 years fighting my company trough hearings & was finally approved by the Judge on 07/31/13. My ex-employer than filed an appeal on 08/20/13 & with it, filed a Supersedeas to NOT pay me til after the Appeals hearing (Scheduled for 10/02/13). The Supersedeas was denied on 09/18/13. I'm wondering what the sentence in the letter means "Pending a final decision on the merits compensation benefits shall be payable based on an average weekly wage of (my average weekly wage)"? I tried finding it online, but can't find anythng that explains what those specific merits are. I received my debit card from the PA Dept of Labor & Industry on 09/23/13. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
