Notes

  1. Rates of compensation are effective each year from January 1 through December 31.
  2. Wage loss benefits have a maximum of 200 weeks for injuries before August 25, 2006.  For injuries on or after that date, an injured worker can receive non-working wage loss for 52 weeks, and working wage loss for 200 weeks. 26 weeks of non-working wage loss count against the 200 weeks of working wage loss, which creates a 226 week total maximum wage loss compensation for injuries on or after August 25, 2006.
  3. The amputation award shows the weekly amount paid for amputation or loss of use, regardless of average weekly wage.
  4. The minimum for death benefits is 1/2 of the maximum shown.
  5. The top number gives the permanent total maximum for injured workers who do not also receive Social Security disability. The bottom number gives the permanent total maximum for injured workers who receive Social Security disability and permanent total.For more information about the relationship between Social Security disability and permanent total, see our Social Security guide.
