It is your appeal, so you can withdraw it if you wish, at any stage of the process.
If you withdraw your appeal and you want to re-open it, you will have to wait 30 days and complete and submit another Appeal Readiness form to the WSIB.
If you withdraw an appeal a second time, you will have to wait 90 days before submitting another Appeal Readiness form. If you withdraw an appeal a third time, you will have to make the request in writing to the Vice-President of the Appeals Services Division to be allowed to submit that appeal again.
