Making Sense of Pennsylvania’s Workers’ Compensation Disability Benefits

The world of permanent disability benefits can sometimes feel like trying to solve a complex puzzle while blindfolded. It’s a labyrinth of legal terms, paperwork, and processes that can feel overwhelming, especially when you’re dealing with the life changes a disability brings.

So why go at it alone?

Paula Robinson is here to make sense of PA’s workers’ compensation benefits for you. These benefits are designed to provide financial assistance to individuals who, due to a workplace injury or illness, are unable to return to their previous line of work. They are a lifeline, a measure of security in a time of uncertainty.

Here’s what you need to know:

When you suffer a work injury in Pennsylvania, the dollar amount and period of time that you can receive workers’ compensation benefits varies depending on the sort and gravity of your injury, as well as the amount of your earnings at the time of the work injury.

Pennsylvania workers’ compensation benefits come in 5 different categories:

Temporary Partial Disability Benefits: If you had a work injury and are not capable of returning to your regular job, but can do lighter work, you may be entitled to temporary partial disability. This is typically two thirds of the difference between your pre-injury wage and what you are earning working the lighter job at lesser wages.

Permanent Partial Disability Benefits: If it is medically determined that you have an ongoing partial disability, you may be entitled to the two thirds of the difference between your current and pre-injury wages. These particular benefits can resume for up to 500 weeks.

Temporary Total Disability Benefits: If your work injury is severe enough that you cannot return to work, you may be eligible for temporary total disability benefits, which are calculated off of your gross wages known as your average weekly wage up to a maximum set by the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry.

Permanent Total Disability Benefits: When it is medically determined that your work injury condition will not improve, you may be permanently totally disabled. Again, your compensation rate will be determined off of your gross wages (average weekly wage) up to the maximum set by the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry. In the event that you are also receiving social security benefits, then your total amount from both benefits cannot exceed 80% of your gross pre-injury earnings, known as your average weekly wage.

Specific Loss Benefits: These are monetary benefits for those with amputations or facial disfigurements above the clavicle. These benefits are paid in either weekly or in a lump sum and the amount and number of weeks is set by a chart determined by the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry depending on the body part involved.
