When Will My Benefits Begin And How Much Will They Be?

No compensation is due for the first seven (7) days of lost time unless the disability exceeds 21 days. Therefore, the first check will not include payment for days 1­7. Payment for those days will be made should the disability continue beyond 21 days.

Payment is made at a rate of 66 2/3% of the average weekly wage, not to exceed $620.00 (2001 maximum, this rate may change yearly) per week.
