Will The Workers’ Compensation Carrier Pay For Me To Obtain Retraining In Another Occupation If I Cannot Return To The Same Type Of Job?

  • By: Lisa J. Pezzano
  • Published: September 13, 2019

The New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Act does not require your employer or the insurance carrier to provide you with retraining. If you are not ready or financially able to retire, you should make plans to start a new career. The New Jersey Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services (“DVRS”) does provide some limited assistance. DVRS provides counseling, training, assistance with job searching and placement. You may contact your local DVRS office to schedule an appointment for an initial interview, at which time your eligibility for services will be evaluated.
