L&I Property Reimbursement
One of the benefits available to injured workers with an open workers’ compensation claim is L&I property reimbursement benefits.
If your personal clothing or protective equipment was lost or damaged in a job injury, it may be replaced with a Property Reimbursement.
What Is Covered Under L&I Property Reimbursement?
Property reimbursements (also known as Expense Reimbursements) are minor benefits and cover a limited range of items: clothing and personal protective equipment (PPE), prescription eyeglasses or contacts, and shoes or boots.
When L&I denies requests for these benefits, the best move is often to pay for the clothing or gear outright and seek reimbursement later in the process, after proof has been developed and the claim has been approved.
