Oil business: Big money, big risks

It's common knowledge that oil is big business here in Denver. A number of energy companies have offices in tall, gleaming buildings downtown. And a number of those companies have workers with calloused hands and sweat-stained shirts working on rigs not far from those gleaming offices.

Simple form is start of complex process

The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment's Division of Workers' Compensation has a pretty simple form with a pretty innocuous name: Notice of Contest.

As the jostling for position get more active among potential presidential candidates -- and more and more, among announced candidates -- one issue is certain to get plenty of national attention: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI or SSD). The fund that provides the benefits to millions of Americans receiving SSD benefits is due to run short next year, and if no fix is generated by the current Congress and president, beneficiaries could see a cut of 20 percent in their monthly assistance.

Also, studies suggest that employers are paying less into the workers' compensation system relative to other costs than has historically been paid in the past.
