Under California’s workers’ compensation system, administered by the Administrative Director of the Division of Workers’ Compensation, existing law governs temporary and permanent disability indemnity payments.  Current law, until January 1, 2024, allows an employer to commence a program under which disability indemnity payments are deposited in a prepaid card account for employees.  Assembly Bill 489 (AB 489) extends the authorization to deposit indemnity payments in a prepaid card account until January 1, 2025.

(AB 489 amends Section 4651 of the Labor Code.)
