My father had an accident at work last year. He has been slowly recovering and has been receiving workman's comp payments. He is still unable to go back to work and still needs physical therapy. He will be 66 next week and he is worried that they will say as he is eligible for retirement they will no longer pay the worker's comp, even though he hadn't intended to retire at 66 prior to the accident.
He asked me and I have no idea if they can force him to retire due to an injury and have his income cut off.
Anyone have any ideas???

As I understand it they own that injury until it's healed or until your dad accepts a settlement. He should call a WC or labor layer...most do a free initial consult.
