Maximum Compensation Rate Florida Workers Compensation


The maximum compensation rate  limits the compensation paid for Temporary Total Disability (TTD) and Temporary Partial Disability (TPD) benefits.  The max comp rate in effect during the year in which the workers comp claimant was injured controls and never changes.

Also, when you are Permanently and Totally Disabled  your PTD rate is limited by the maximum compensation rate in effect for your date of accident. You are also entitled to annual supplemental increases in almost every case.  The combination of the PTD and supplemental benefits cannot exceed the maximum compensation rate in effect at the time of payment, which can be in excess of the rate in effect on your date of accident.

In our experience we find that the adjuster will often use the incorrect maximum compensation rate when paying  TTD, TPD ,  PTD and supplemental benefits.  Call us to make sure you are being paid correctly.

Below  are the compensation rates in effect for each year listed:
