Benefit Payments

Benefit payments by benefit category

The WSIB pays benefits to people after a work-related injury or illness. Benefits are grouped into eight categories and can be found in the table below. Benefit payments have seen an increase of four per cent from 2017 to 2018.

Loss-of-earnings, pensions, and health care continue to be the most common benefits paid. In 2018, these three categories make up over 80 per cent of all benefit payments made to, or on behalf of people with claims (excluding loss-of-retirement income fund expense).
