Pursuant to Minn. Stat. 176.238, a Notice of Intention to Discontinue Benefits (NOID) can be filed for a number of reasons; most commonly an employee’s return to work. However, there are numerous other reasons to file a NOID. Remember, when an employee returns to work, compensation may be discontinued the day he/she returns to work and the NOID can be filed within 14 days the Employer and Insurer receive notice of such. However, if the reason for the discontinuance is other than an employee’s return to work, the liability of the employer and insurer to make payments of compensation continues until the copy of the NOID and attachments have been filed with the division.

Some common examples of reasons to file a NOID other than an employee’s return to work are listed on our website. You can find the full article at
