Workers’ compensation insurance companies are supposed to pay you at the same frequency you get your normal pay check. If you are paid weekly, you should get your workers’ compensation check every week. If you are working and receiving partial workers’ compensation checks, you should keep the paystubs from your time of injury job and any other jobs you are working. The insurance company will delay making partial payments until they have the wage information, so it is always helpful if you keep your paystubs.
In terms of how much you will make from workers’ compensation, it depends on your earnings. The typical rule is you get two-thirds of your normal gross wage (pre-tax wage). If you earn less than $476 per week, then your compensation rate would be 90 percent.
