I believe the minimum % rating that is required to receive any payout whether it be Independance Allowance or Lump sum is 10% so therefore you should still receive some assistance.

I gather that your condition has deteriorated for you to receive another lump sum.

if the 13% is the total amount of disibility then you will not be receiving extra lump sum moneys.

By memory I thing that you injury has to deteriorate at least a further 10 % before you will receive anything. (check the Act to make sure)

Most of us have experienced this diminishing of actuality in the face of reality.
It has beem going on since they started using ama standards and the act which enables its use and policy as to interpretation and administration by ACC .
It is about time something was done about this assessment proceedure adopted by ACC which is niggardly done in a totally non independany way due to asessors having to be approved by ACC which preclude a goodly proportion of the good specialists in exchange for indoctrinated and grossly misled beginners working under supervision who are contracted to ACC and must follow ACC's best practice Policy and adhere to the elements of their agreement enabling them to hold ACC approved status.......................Is that fair?????????????? Is that the Intent of The ACT?????????????
