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
