In Pennsylvania, Workers' Compensation provides protection for both workers and employers in the event of work-related injuries or illnesses. For injured employees, Workers' Compensation helps cover medical costs, including rehabilitation, as well as providing temporary income when a work injury causes an employee to miss work. Employers with coverage are sheltered from liability for these costs and are protected from related lawsuits.
Pennsylvania employers can obtain Workers' Compensation coverage through an agent or broker, including online portals such as CoverWallet, which can also provide other types of essential coverages for Pennsylvania businesses. Some employers may have the option to self-insure, and coverage is also available through Pennsylvania's State Workers Insurance Fund.
When calculating temporary income paid through Workers' Compensation benefits in Pennsylvania, the total of all gross wages from every employer is considered, with the assumption that your disability affects all types of work. Based on gross wages, a percentage is paid to the injured employee ranging from 66% to 90%, up to the maximum weekly limit, which changes annually.
In Pennsylvania, temporary income provided through Workers' Compensation coverage is offered at a percentage of average weekly earnings which varies depending on the average weekly earnings amount. This percentage ranges from 66% up to 90%, with wage earners at the lower end of the scale being provided a higher percentage of their pay. Pennsylvania utilizes a cap on temporary income which can affect higher-income earners.
