Compensation tables - amounts payable

The amount of compensation for impairment benefits is calculated by applying the assessed percentage of impairment to a mathematical formula. The mathematical formulas are set out in the legislation and the indexation may vary based on the worker’s date of injury or the relevant date for assessment of entitlement.

See the compensation tables for the actual amounts of compensation payable for different dates of injury and differing levels of impairment or total loss.
