Allowed lost time claims receiving loss of earnings benefits
Loss-of-earnings benefits are the wage loss benefits a person receives for missing time from work because of a work-related injury or illness happening on or after January 1, 1998. Improved recovery and return-to-work outcomes are reflected in this measure.
The bar graphs below show the percentage of claims receiving loss-of-earnings benefits at three and six month’s post-injury or illness. Each bar is split by level of loss-of-earnings benefits – full and partial.
Over the past five years, the percentage of claims on partial loss-of-earnings benefits at both three and six months remained mostly the same. However, there has been an increase in the percentage of claims on full loss-of-earnings benefits at both three and six month’s post-injury or illness.
