Will I receive benefits while I am off work?

When an injured employee is unable to work because of an injury or illness, which was caused by their employment, the employee is entitled to receive temporary disability compensation. This benefit pays at 2/3 of the base salary with a maximum cap of $1066.72 for all injuries after 1/1/13. This benefit will only pay for 104 weeks maximum, with some exceptions. Payment of this benefit will also cease if you either return to work, or you have reached maximum medical improvement.
