What Kind of Benefits Can I Get?

When you’re hurt on the job—or you developed a job-related illness over time—workers’ compensation is designed to help you recover and continue supporting yourself financially.

You’re entitled to two major kinds of benefits:

  • Lost Wages: If you can’t work after your injury, you should receive benefit checks covering a percentage of the income you’re missing. The amount varies with your marital status and number of children. If you can still work, but you can’t earn as much, you should get compensation for your loss of earning power.
  • Medical Care: Workers’ comp should pay for the medical care you need as a result of your workplace injury or illness. That includes doctor visits, hospitalization, surgeries, prescriptions and more. You should keep getting health care coverage until your injury has stabilized or reached a point where no further recovery is expected.

You can also receive vocational rehabilitation under worker’s comp, giving you access to job counselors who can help you return to work, find new work, or arrange training opportunities.

But be careful—the insurance company might just use vocational rehabilitation as a tool to get you off benefits before you’re ready.

The experienced attorneys at Levine Benjamin can make sure you receive all the benefits you’re entitled to under the workers’ comp system.

How Much Can I Get?

Your weekly checks for lost wages can total between 60% and 75% of your pay, depending on your marital status and dependent children.

If you can work but your earning power is reduced, a complicated formula determines how much you get in wage loss payments.

If you receive other government benefits, such as Social Security Disability, that also affects the amount of your lost wages.

INSTRUCTIONS: To estimate how much you’ll get in lost wages benefits, take your highest 39 paid weeks in the 52 weeks prior to your injury and add them together. Divide this total amount by 39 to find your average weekly wage and enter that below.
