You may be owed money for your workers compensation claim

Did you receive weekly workers compensation payments after October 2012? You may be owed money and can have your payments reassessed.

When were you injured?

I was injured on or after 1 October 2012 and before 21 October 2019

You must have notified your insurer of a workplace injury on or after 1 October 2012, and the date of your injury must be before 21 October 2019 to register for reassessment using our online form.

I was injured on or after 21 October 2019

For injuries notified on or after 21 October 2019, we encourage you to speak with your claims manager and ask them to reassess your weekly benefit payment. If you are unsure who your claims manager is, please contact us on 02 6714 8003.

If you still believe your weekly benefit is wrong following reassessment, you are entitled to ask for a formal review, either via your claims manager or you can go to the Personal Injury Commission (PIC). You can go to the PIC directly, or with assistance from your lawyer. For more information, go to the State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA) website.

Please note this reassessment does not apply to claims made, and for weekly payments commenced, prior to 1 October 2012. Prior to this date weekly payments were all deemed to have the same legislated 'transitional rate'.
