What Benefits Are Available to Me?

The forms of worker's compensation benefits that are available in California include:

  • Temporary disability, which are paid when an individual is unable to work their job as a result of the injury or illness, available until they are released to return to work, found to have a permanent disability, or have reached maximum medical improvement, and paid at a rate of two-thirds their weekly wage (up to a maximum amount)
  • Permanent partial disability, which is available if your injury is determined to be permanent, calculated based on a 0-100% disability scale, and may be received through weekly payments or a lump-sum
  • Medical treatment, which covers all necessary and reasonable medical care in order to cure the injury or illness, and may need to be sought through your employer's medical provider network
  • Supplemental job displacement, which is available for workers who are unable to return to the same job or line of work and is paid in the form of a voucher to a state-accredited school
  • Death benefits, which are paid to the dependent spouse and minor children, if the worker dies from his or her injury or illness
