Workers' Compensation Benefits and Administration

Workers’ compensation provides:

  • No-cost medical care to “cure” or “relieve” the injured employee of the injury’s effects.
  • Varying levels of tax-free replacement income during periods of temporary inability to earn income. If the employee returns to modified or alternate work paying a lesser wage than the usual and customary position, workers’ compensation may continue to cover the employee for a time. The amount of time and compensation depends on the disability’s nature, severity and duration.
  • Tax-free benefits for those who suffer varying degrees of permanent disabilities.
  • Tax-free benefits for an employee’s surviving dependents if the work-related injury is fatal.
