This form is completed whenever additional periods of disability occur for an accident or illness for which an initial Agreement to Pay Benefits has already been submitted to the Commission. Submit the completed form to the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission, 1000 DMV Drive, Richmond , VA 23220. Note: If additional consecutive periods of temporary partial disability occur, a Supplemental Agreement to Pay Varying Temporary Partial Benefits (VWC Form No. 4G) may be filed in place of this form 2. For subsequent periods of compensation benefits, a Supplemental Agreement to Pay Benefits (VWC Form No. 4A) or a Supplemental Agreement to Pay Varying Temporary Partial Benefits (VWC Form No. 4G) must be filed. 3. The information at the top right of the form should be provided by the insurer. Please note that the insurer code refers to the five-digit numeric code assigned by The National Counsel on Compensation Insurance (NCCI). Selfinsured employers are assigned a similar five-digit code number by the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission. 4. Incomplete or illegible forms will either be returned to the insurer for proper completion or they will be rejected. 5. When filling out this form, please be sure to provide a brief description of how the accident or illness occurred in the “Cause of Accident” box. Please indicate all parts of the body affected and which are accepted, in the “Nature of Injury” box. 6. Note that compensation is paid beginning with the eighth (8th) day of disability resulting from a work related accident or illness. If the disability period exceeds more than 21 days, then compensation is owed retroactively for the first seven (7) days of disability. The first seven (7) days of disability includes all days or parts of days when the injured employee was unable to earn a full day’s wages, or was not paid a full day’s wages, due to the injury. These dates should be the same as reflected on the Agreement to Pay Benefits (VWC Form No. AW4). 7. When an employee receives full wages during disability, these days are to be counted towards the waiting period and any subsequent days of disability. Agreement forms need to be completed in their entirety, giving dates and amounts the employee would have been entitled to receive in compensation benefits covering all periods of disability. 8. Definition of Types of Benefits: Temporary Total (TT) Disability – Injured employee is totally disabled for work, and is entitled to receive compensation for a period of total wage loss, based upon 66 2/3% (.66667) of the pre-injury average weekly wage.* Temporary Partial (TP) Disability – Injured employee is partially disabled for work, but is entitled to receive compensation for a period of partial wage loss, based upon 66 2/3% (.66667) of the difference between the preinjury average weekly wage and the post (or current) average weekly wage.* Forms received without specific dollar amounts or those that reflect the word “Various” will be rejected.
