2023 Pennsylvania Maximum Workers Compensation Rate
Under the Worker’s Compensation Act, injured workers are generally entitled to wage-loss benefits equal to two-thirds of their weekly wage for a work-related injury up to a maximum amount. Every year, the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry adjusts the maximum amount of wage loss benefits an injured worker can receive if they are unable to work as a result of a work- related injury. The maximum amount of wage loss benefits is based on the Department of Labor and Industry’s calculation of the statewide average weekly wage. For the calendar year 2023 the maximum weekly compensation rate is $1,273.00. This amount only applies if you sustain a work-related injury in 2023 that results in wage loss. If you have questions about how much worker’s compensation wage loss benefits you may be entitled to, you should speak with an experienced Pennsylvania Worker’s Compensation law firm.
