Workers’ Compensation

ORS 656.228
Payments directly to beneficiary or custodian


If compensation is payable for the benefit of a beneficiary other than the injured worker, the insurer or the self-insured employer may segregate any additional compensation payable on account of that beneficiary and make payment directly to the beneficiary, if sui juris; otherwise, to the guardian or person having custody of the beneficiary.


Compensation paid to an injured worker who is a minor prior to receipt of notice by the insurer or the self-insured employer from the parent or guardian of the minor that the parent or guardian claims the compensation shall discharge the obligation to pay compensation to the extent of such payment. [Amended by 1957 c.477 §1; 1965 c.285 §25; 1981 c.854 §12]
