Workers’ Comp Benefits Available

Depending on the injury sustained in the workplace, the benefits offered by the state of Missouri can vary. A person who suffers a back strain will receive different benefits from another person who lost a body part. Payments are also determined based on the recovery time. However, most cases calculate benefits using the worker’s average weekly wages.

Benefit payments can occur in ways such as:

  • Temporary partial disability—assuming the person is able to continue working even partial hours, this method subtracts the new wage from the former, normal wage and gives two-thirds of that amount back to the person in recovery
  • Temporary total disability—a person unable to return to work receives two-thirds of their weekly wages until they can return to work
  • Permanent partial disability—as above, those who suffered injuries that prevent them from returning to work receive two-thirds of their weekly wage, payable in a lump sum if desired
  • Permanent total disability—this payment is a lifetime benefit of two-thirds of the wage at the time of the injury, available in a lump sum if desired
