SUBSEQUENT INJURY FUND BOARD

ORIGIN & FUNCTIONS


[photo, Cranston Building, 320 East Towsontown Blvd., Towson, Maryland] The Subsequent Injury Fund insures injured workers whose pre-existing health condition, when combined with the injury, increases their disability and hinders their ability to work. Workers' Compensation claims cover damages caused by an accidental workplace injury, while the Fund assumes liability for the combined effects of all injuries and conditions. The Fund is financed through assessments paid by workers' compensation employers and insurers. The Subsequent Injury Fund Board supervises the Fund.

The Board's function first was assumed in 1963 by the Workmen's Compensation Commission when the Commission was made responsible for the Subsequent Injury Fund (Chapter 809, Acts of 1963). In 1975, the Workmen's Compensation Fund Board succeeded the Commission and, in turn, was replaced by the Subsequent Injury Fund Board in 1982 (Chapter 142, Acts of 1982).

Three members constitute the Board. They are appointed to four-year terms by the Governor with Senate advice and consent. The Board names the Director (Code Labor and Employment Article, secs. 10-201 through 10-219).
