The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act provides wage loss benefits for individuals who are injured at work and unable to continue working (either temporarily or permanently) due to a work injury. In many situations, injured individuals are also eligible for Social Security disability benefits or other wage benefits. The overlap of these benefits can be confusing for individuals who are inexperienced with workers’ compensation laws and Social Security laws. Most injured workers receiving workers’ compensation benefits will receive wage loss benefits equaling approximately two-thirds of their weekly wages (of what they were earning prior to becoming injured). However, when a worker is collecting other wage benefits, in addition to their workers’ compensation benefits, the injured worker may only be eligible for partial wage loss benefits.
