2015 Maximum Pennsylvania Workers Compensation Rate

The Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry determines on a year to year basis the maximum workers compensation rate for injured workers in Pennsylvania.  The Department of Labor and Industry has announced that the 2015 Maximum Workers Compensation Rate in Pennsylvania is $951/week for all work injuries suffered  after January 1, 2015.  An Employee can determine their average weekly wage from a Statement of Wages.  A Statement of Wages should be provided to the Employee once a workers’ compensation claim is accepted. For non-salaried employees this Statement of Wages should document the Employee’s gross wages over the previous four quarters. For Employees employed more than three periods of 13 weeks, the average weekly wage is calculated by taking the top three earning quarters, averaging those quarters and dividing by 13. The workers’ compensation rate is 66 2/3 % to 90 % of the average weekly wage up to the state maximum. If you were injured before January 1, 2015, the 2015 maximum workers compensation rate and the maximum rate for all years can be found on the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry website.  The average weekly wage is calculated as the date of the injury and not the date of disability, if they are different.  If you have questions regarding the calculation of your Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Payable rate or Average Weekly Wage, contact our office.
