When you’re completely unable to work, you’ll need your benefits to replace the wages you lost while unable to work. Luckily, your workers comp benefits should provide part of the income you would have received if you were still working. If you’re completely incapable to work, you should receive a percentage of your original wages. These benefits will be paid until you’re able to return to work or until you reach retirement age. If you’ve only moderately lost your ability to work, you should still receive workers compensation for your injuries. Fortunately, your benefits should cover this loss and help you reach maximum medical improvement. From there, you’ll have completely recovered, or you’ll have transitioned into a position you can still complete.
