        Question: Is there a cap on my workers’ compensation benefits? Answer:

        There is a cap on both the temporary total disability benefits, as well as on the permanent total disability benefits. That number changes every year. As of 2022, it is around $900 a week. There’s a cap both on the amount for a total disability claim, as well as how long you can receive those benefits. Benefits are terminated upon death or the injured worker returning to work. For a worker who’s been determined to be disabled from their job, they are capped on the amount and duration, which is only during the period of disability. For partial disability claims, which involve serious injuries, but not injuries that have disabled the employee, there is a cap of 300 weeks at $220 a week. That cap was put in place over 30 years ago. Our legislature has not increased that amount since. That $220 cap does apply to a lot of the claims that we handle. It’s important to try to maximize the value of the claim in other ways.
