Temporary Disability Rate DROP!

New Jersey’s maximum temporary disability rate dropped for 2011 to $792 per week. That means that any worker making more than $1,131 per week (gross) is capped at this maximum temporary disability wage compensation.
This is a drop of two dollars ($2) from last year’s maximum rate ($794).
Despite this drop, New Jersey’s Compensation Rating and Inspection Bureau (NJ CRIB) announced a 1% rate hike. CRIB blames the 1% increase in rate on rising medical costs as a component of workers’ compensation premiums.
