176.165 LUMP-SUM PAYMENTS.

The amounts of compensation payable periodically may be commuted to one or more lump-sum payments only by order of the commissioner of the Department of Labor and Industry, compensation judge, or Workers' Compensation Court of Appeals in cases upon appeal, and on such terms and conditions as the commissioner of the Department of Labor and Industry, compensation judge, or Workers' Compensation Court of Appeals prescribes. In making these commutations the lump-sum payments shall amount, in the aggregate, to a sum equal to the present value of all future installments of the compensation calculated on a five percent basis.
