Benefit Payments by Benefit Category

The WSIB makes benefit payments to or on behalf of injured workers. Benefit payments are made during a specific year and are grouped into eight categories found in the table below. Since 2012, benefit payments have been decreasing year over year. This trend reflects both an overall decrease in new lost time claim volumes and improved recovery and return to work outcomes.

Loss of earnings, workers’ pensions, and health care continue to account for the highest percentage of benefits paid to injured workers. For 2016, these three benefit categories account for over 80 per cent of all benefit payments made to or on behalf of injured workers (excluding Loss of Retirement Income Fund expense).
