Commonwealth Court Confirms 104 Weeks for IRE Runs From First Date of Payment

In S. Ramseur v. WCAB (Wachovia Corp.), the Commonwealth Court held that where the Claimant was entitled to benefits on March 3, 2000, but didn't receive the first payment until August 3, 2000 (presumably a payment including back benefits), the 104 weeks provided for in Section 306(a.2) of the Act expires on August 3, 2002. This made the August 27, 2002 IRE request timely.
