HURDLES TO TRIGGER LIABILITY OF THE SECOND INJURY FUND

The Second Injury Fund pays the wage loss disability benefits in cases where:

  1. The employee has suffered a compensable injury at the present place of employment, and that injury has produced permanent anatomical impairment.
  2. Prior to that injury, the employee must have incurred a permanent partial disability or impairment, and
  3. The prior disability or impairment must combine with the recent compensable injury to produce the current disability status. That combination must be greater than the disability or impairment from the last injury considered alone and of itself.

Second Injury claims should be filed with the Special Funds Administrator prior to January 1, 2008 (see Act 1415 of 2007). The Special Funds Division is located at: 324 South Spring Street, Little Rock, Arkansas 72201
