Loss-of-earnings benefit payments

Similar to Schedule 1, loss-of-earnings was the leading benefit category for payments made on behalf of Schedule 2 businesses. Loss-of-earning benefits are wage loss benefits for time missed from work because of a work-related injury or illness that happened on or after January 1, 1998.

Since 2014, the number of locked-in claims getting loss-of-earning benefits has stayed mostly the same.

A claim is locked-in if a lock-in payment is made at any point during the year benefits are being paid. This only applies to claims reviewed under Bill 99 legislation.
