After 260 weeks (five years)

Weekly payments will cease unless you have been assessed as having an agreed permanent impairment of more than 20 per cent.

Where you continue to be entitled to weekly payments, the insurer will determine your weekly payment in accordance with section 38 of the 1987 Act.

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 ($2195.70) minus any 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.
