Impairment Benefits

If you reach Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI), and your authorized physician(s) assign you an impairment rating, you may be entitled to impairment benefits from the Worker’s Compensation carrier as follows:

  1. Two weeks of benefits are to be paid for each percentage point of impairment from 1% up to and including 10%.
  2. For each percentage point of impairment from 11% up to and including 15%, 3 weeks of benefits are to be paid.
  3. For each percentage point of impairment from 16% up to and including 20%, 4 weeks of benefits are to be paid.
  4. For each percentage point of impairment from 21% and higher, 6 weeks of benefits are to be paid.

Impairment benefits are paid at the rate of 75% of your TTD rate. However, impairment benefits will be reduced by 50% for each week in which you earn income equal to or in excess of your pre-injury wages.
