After 260 weeks (five years)

Weekly payments will cease unless your level of permanent impairment is more than 20 per cent.

After 260 weeks, weekly payments are calculated based on the lesser of:

  • 80 per cent of your pre-injury average weekly earnings, minus your current weekly earnings or the amount that you have been assessed as able to earn in suitable employment, and the value of any deductible amount, or
  • the maximum weekly compensation amount minus any current weekly earnings and the value of any deductible amount.
