Worker's Compensation Benefits


In New York Workers compensation will pay 2/3 of the average weekly salary under the following scale.  New Jersey will be similar, the maximum weekly payment may vary slightly in NJ.  In addition Workers Compensation will pay for all medical bills.  Workers Compensation also includes a death benefit , supplemental benefits and Social security benefits.

Cash Benefits

Cash benefits are not paid for the first seven days of the disability, unless it extends beyond fourteen days. In that case, the worker may receive cash benefits from the first work day off the job. Necessary medical care is provided no matter how short or how long the length of the disability.

Claimants who are totally or partially disabled and unable to work for more than seven days receive cash benefits. The amount that a worker receives is based on his/her average weekly wage for the previous year. The following formula is used to calculate benefits:

2/3 x average weekly wage x % of disability = weekly benefit

Therefore, a claimant who was earning $400 per week and is totally (100%) disabled would receive $266.67 per week. A partially disabled claimant (50%) would receive $133.34 per week. The weekly benefit cannot exceed the following maximums, however, which are based on the date of accident:

If you can return to work but your injury prevents you from earning the same wages you once did, you may be entitled to a benefit that will make up two-thirds of the difference.
