Loss-of-earnings benefit payments

Over the past five years, loss-of-earnings account for the greatest percentage of benefit payments. Loss-of-earnings benefits are wage loss benefits for time lost from work due to a work-related injury or illness occurring on or after January 1, 1998. The number of allowed lost-time claims receiving loss-of-earnings benefits increased from 2016 to 2017. This increase can be attributed to an increase in the number of non-locked-in claims.  

After adjusting for inflation, the loss-of-earnings paid for a single day off work has remained relatively stable over the last five years.

A claim is considered locked-in if a lock-in payment occurred at any point within the benefit payment year. The claim population includes Bill 99 legislation only.
