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

Workers` compensation provides coverage for all reasonably necessary medical services and supplies related to an on­the­job injury or occupational disease. While recovering from a work­related injury, a worker may be entitled to either temporary total disability compensation or temporary partial disability compensation. Generally benefits are paid at a rate of 66 2/3 of your average weekly wages up to the maximum allowed by law.
