Workers' Compensation coverage for temporary income in New Jersey is available to workers who miss more than 7 days of work due to their work-related injuries and pays 70% of that worker's gross weekly wages, up to a maximum weekly amount that changes each year.
You can purchase required Workers' Compensation coverage through an agent or broker, or online using a portal such as CoverWallet, which can also provide other essential insurance policies for your business. Unlike some other states, New Jersey does not offer a state fund, but businesses having trouble finding coverage can utilize New Jersey’s assigned risk pool, which will place their business with a carrier.
New Jersey utilizes its own rating bureau, the New Jersey Compensation Rating and Inspection Bureau (NJCRIB) to help determine Workers' Compensation rates for businesses in the state. Similar to the factors used to determine rates in other states, the type of industry, claims history, and payroll all effect Workers' Compensation costs, causing rates to vary depending on your specific business.
Workers' Compensation coverage in New Jersey provides medical treatment and income replacement for workers injured on the job or suffering from work-related illnesses. Income replacement of up to 70% of the worker's average gross wages is paid, provided that the work injury prevents an employee from returning to work. Death benefits to surviving dependents are also available for workplace injuries resulting in death.
