Register here to request an assessment of your pre-injury earnings

If you notified your insurer of a workplace injury between 2012 and 2019 in NSW, you’re invited to have your Pre-Injury Average Weekly Earnings (PIAWE) determination assessed if you believe you may have been underpaid.

The calculation of PIAWE is used to determine the amount of weekly benefit payments paid for a work-related injury while you’re unable to work, as part of your workers compensation claim in NSW.

While many workers have received the correct weekly payments, some have been underpaid and some overpaid over this seven-year period. If any worker is owed money they will be reimbursed. Workers won't be asked to repay any overpayment.

Steps to determine eligibility

You're eligible for an assessment if you meet the following criteria:

  1. You notified your insurer of a workplace injury between 1 October 2012 and 20 October 2019.
  2. At the time of your injury you worked in the private sector in NSW (you were not employed by the NSW Government or covered by a Specialised or Self Insurer).
  3. You received weekly workers compensation payments as a result of your injury.

If you meet these requirements you can request a reassessment of your PIAWE by completing the form below.

Government employees can request a review of their PIAWE through existing channels and by speaking with their claims manager.

If you have any questions, check the FAQ on our PIAWE assessment process page.
