Benefits which you can receive from workers’ compensation include:
Benefits Available from Workers’ Compensation
Wage Loss BenefitsWage loss benefits are what people generally think of when talking about workers’ compensation. While these benefits do not cover your full regular wages–you only receive 66 percent of the state average weekly wage–the benefits can certainly help make ends meet. You must miss a full week of work before your wage loss benefits begin, although you may be able to recover the first week’s pay later.
Medical BenefitsWorkers’ compensation benefits can also pay for medical treatment related to your injury or illness.
Scarring and Disfigurement BenefitsIf your injury or illness left you with permanent disfigurement, you may qualify for a lump sum payment for your losses. You may be eligible if you suffered significant scarring, disfigurement, or permanent loss of function on your face, neck, or hands.
Other BenefitsSeveral other benefits may be available through workers’ compensation, including the opportunity to attend vocational rehabilitation for qualifying workers. Workers’ compensation also provides survivors and dependents of someone who died in a workplace accident with funeral benefits and burial costs. Additionally, surviving spouses are entitled to 66 percent of their late spouse’s weekly income as long as they remain dependent and do not remarry.
