Welcome to the Workers' Compensation Online Benefits Calculator.
This benefit calculator works for injuries on or after July 1, 2000
The Alaska Workers' Compensation Division and its trading partners have tested this calculator extensively. However, the Division does not guarantee the accuracy of computations and assumes no liability for output errors.
These calculations can be manually computed by using the injury year specific workers’ compensation worksheets found online at http://labor.alaska.gov/wc/rate.htm.
To use the calculator:
- Select the Type of Benefit (see description below)
- Enter the date of your work occupational injury or illness (enter as mm/dd/yyyy)
- Enter your gross weekly wage (see description of gross earnings below)
- Enter your marital status at the time of injury
- Enter the number of qualified dependents (include yourself in the calculation)
When calculating your workers’ compensation benefits, keep in mind the following:
- The date of injury determines the compensation rate.
- Compensation rates are based on gross earnings. The calculation varies depending on how a person is paid, as defined in Alaska Statute 23.30.220(a) and 23.30.395(22)
- The spendable weekly wage is gross weekly earnings minus payroll tax deductions.
- Dependents include spouse, legally dependent children, or other individuals legally dependent upon the injured worker, as defined in Alaska Statute 23.30.395
- Compensation rates are capped under Alaska Statute 23.30.175. The maximum and minimum rates are established each year by bulletin, which can be found online at http://labor.alaska.gov/wc/bulletins.htm
- TTD – The Temporary Total Disability (TTD) rate is 80% of the spendable weekly wage
- PTD – The Permanent Total Disability (PTD) rate is 80% of the spendable weekly wage
- PPI – The Permanent Partial Impairment (PPI) rate is the whole person impairment rating times $177,000.
- TPD – The Temporary Partial Disability (TPD) rate is 80% of the difference between the spendable weekly wage before injury and the wage earning capacity after injury.
- 041K – The Reemployment Stipend (041K) rate is 70% of the spendable weekly wage.
- The weekly benefit rate may be reduced if
- the injured worker relocates out-of-state;
- the injured worker is receiving social security benefits;
- the injured worker is receiving disability benefits under the state retirement system; or
- the employer is recovering an overpayment of benefits.
If you are an injured worker and believe your disability benefit is being calculated incorrectly, please contact your claims administrator. If you and the claims administrator are unable to agree on the rate of compensation, contact the Division of Workers’ Compensation for further assistance.
