Georgia increases WC benefit levels

Higher income benefit levels went into effect on July 1, 2016.  For injuries occurring after that date, the maximum TTD rate is $575.00 per week and the maximum TPD rate is $383.00 per week.

Benefit levels are "fixed" as of the law that exists on your date of accident.  So, if your accident occurred before July 1, 2016, these maximum rates do not apply for your claim.  Georgia does not provide for any periodic increases in income benefits for cost of living or other factors.
