Here are the steps to getting Supplemental Earnings Benefits (SEB) in Louisiana:
If your doctor releases you to work with restrictions but no jobs are available, you could get SEB payments that equal your current workers’ comp payment.
In Louisiana, we’re fortunate that workers can get SEB payments. It’s not available in some states where your benefits end if you’re able to work, even if your job pays less and you can’t get another job.

During any period that your workplace injury takes you off the job completely, in addition to getting your medical care covered, you can get payments for two-thirds of your previous earnings.
These lost wages benefits are also called indemnity benefits:
Sometimes, employers offer a different job when you return to work. People unhappy with the reassignment might quit. But, to get SEB payments, you have to accept any suitable job offer.
If your employer doesn’t have a job to offer, it may refer you to a vocational counselor to help place you in new work. But this option is full of pitfalls.
You need to guard against your employer and its workers’ comp insurance company trying to push you off of benefits.
