Helping Injured NJ Workers Obtain What They Need During This Difficult Time
There are two kinds of lost wage benefits, distinguished by the level of disability and the severity of the injury.
- Partial disability: If you can return to work doing light duty, you may be paid a partial disability benefit, pegged at 70 percent of your average weekly wage and not to exceed the maximum rate or fall below the minimum rate for the year of the injury. For 2013 injuries, the maximum an injured worker in NJ could receive was $826; the minimum was $220.
- Total disability: If you’re completely disabled and incapable of returning to any position at work, you may be eligible to receive lost wage benefits based on total disability. Generally, recipients get two-thirds of their weekly wage. For 2013 injuries, the maximum an injured employee could receive was $826; the minimum was $220.
Note that lost wage benefits can be reduced if you receive income from sources such as Social Security Disability, a retirement plan or unemployment insurance.
