WCC Correction to Weekly Benefit Tables Memorandum - February 22, 2011


MEMORANDUM NO. 2011-01

TO: Commissioners, District Administrators, Self-Insureds, Insurance Carriers, Attorneys, Unions, Legal Advisory Panel and Advisory Board Members
FROM: John A. Mastropietro, Chairman
DATE: February 22, 2011
RE: Correction to Weekly Benefit Tables

Effective January 1, 2011 the social security withholding tax on earnings was reduced by 2 percent. Because of this, the compensation rates shown in the current Weekly Benefit Tables will not be accurate for dates of injury on or after 1/1/2011. To manually calculate the correct compensation rates, you may use the following "short cut" equations.

  1. For average weekly wages less than or equal to $2,053:
    Multiply the gross weekly average wage by 1.5 percent and add this to the compensation rate shown in the rate table books.
     
  2. For average weekly rates equal to or greater than $2,054:
    Add $30.81 to the compensation rate shown in the rate table books.

The maximum and minimum compensation rates as stated in the rate tables book remain the same.
