Permanent Total Disability Benefit

A monthly pension for life is granted to an employee whose injury or illness results in permanent inability to work, based on medical and vocational reports. Pensions also are granted if the accident results in total paralysis or loss of arms, one arm, one legal or both legs, or a complete loss of eyesight, even if the worker is able to return to work.

Pension benefits are based on the amount of time-loss compensation to which the worker is entitled. As with time-loss compensation benefits, the amount a worker is eligible to receive depends on factors such as wages at the time of loss, marital status, number of dependents, healthcare benefits, Social Security benefits and the state’s average wage at the time of your injury. In some cases, pension benefit amounts may be reduced for previously paid permanent partial disability awards. While these benefits will come directly from L&I, employers are responsible for funding the benefits.

If you have been re-injured in an accident at work or if you have an occupational illness, you deserve protection. Call our office today to talk to a Worker Compensation Attorney.
