Notice of Temporary Compensation Payable (NTCP) | Work Injury Lawyer | $110,000 Workers Compensation Settlement

June 6, 2012

If an employer decides to accept a work injury by filing a Notice of Temporary Compensation Payable (NTCP), temporary compensation benefits can be paid for up to 90 days while the employer further investigates the claim. If an employer wants to stop paying benefits under an NTCP, it must file a Notice Stopping Temporary Compensation (NSTCP) within 5 days of the last workers’ compensation check, along with a Notice of Workers’ Compensation Denial (NCD). Failure to follow this procedure will automatically convert the NTCP into a Notice of Compensation Payable.


An injured worker met with David F. Stern after he suddenly stopped receiving workers’ compensation benefits. Mr. Stern reviewed the file and found that while the employer had issued a NTCP, it had stopped payments without properly filing an NSTCP or an NCD. In fact, the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation had issued a Notice of Conversion, entitling the employee to continued receipt workers’ compensation benefits. Mr. Stern filed multiple petitions on the employee’s behalf. The case ultimately settled for $110,000.00.
