The Florida Department of Financial Services provided an annual increase in the weekly compensation rate that injured employees are paid if placed on a no work status by an authorized workers’ compensation doctor. These benefits are called Temporary Total Disability benefits.
If placed on a no-work status, injured workers are eligible to collect indemnity benefits (lost wage checks) which are calculated at 66 2/3% of an injured workers’ average weekly wage. For accidents that occur in 2013, the maximum weekly amount that an injured worker can receive if placed on a no work status is $815.75. The maximum weekly compensation rate in 2012 was $805.00.
