How Do I Calculate Partial Disability Benefits in PA Workers' Compensation?
CALCULATE PENNSYLVANIA PARTIAL DISABILITY
BENEFITS OWED AS FOLLOWS:
Average Weekly Wage at time of injury (taken from Notice of Compensation Payable, Agreement for Workers' Compensation or Judge’s Award) minus gross pay for week in question equals earning loss.
Then, multiply earning loss by 2 and then divide by 3 to get partial disability compensation owed.
Example: $550.00 (A.W.W.) - $300.00 (Gross pay for week) = $250.00 (earning loss)
Then, $250.00 x 2 = $500.00
Then, $500.00 ÷ 3 = $166.66 (partial owed for week)
