WORKERS' COMPENSATION CLAIMS

Wage Loss Benefits

Once the worker demonstrates a period of disability, wage loss benefits amounting to approximately eighty percent of after tax wages are payable beginning the second week of disability. If the disability extends beyond the second week the worker is entitled to receive benefits for the first week as well. Wage loss benefits can be reduced by the employer for other employer sponsored disability programs including wage continuation, disability insurance, and pension benefits. Wage loss benefits can continue for a lifetime.
