    Benefits for Permanent Partial Disability (PPD)
    The percentage of worker's wage paid is 66 2/3. For weekly payments, the minimum is payable but not statutorily prescribed, and the maximum is $316.50, 50% of SAWW. For non-scheduled injuries, the maximum period of payments is 375 weeks and the maximum payment is $118,687. Ratings for compensation purposes are determined as a percentage of permanent total disability. Wage loss benefits are determined by multiplying the percentage of impairment by 375 weeks not to exceed a permanent partial disability rating of 100%. WC benefits are subject to Social Security benefit offsets.
