How much do I get paid on workers comp in Ohio?
- Depends on your income prior to the injury
- First 12 weeks of missed work, 72% of your Full Weekly Wage (FWW)
- After 12 weeks of missed work, 66 2/3% of Average Weekly Wage (AWW)
Important things to know about receiving workers comp:
- Need proof (pay stubs) of your wages for ONE YEAR prior to your injury date.
- Provide wage documentation to attorney ASAP! Workers comp will NOT be paid until your wages are accurately set.
- A cooperative employer MAY provide wage information. If not, we need you to get proof of earnings!
- Understand Ohio BWC has minimum and maximum wage rates for each calendar year. Those change every calendar year. Your wages are set based upon the year you were injured not the year you are receiving the disability payment.
