For Fiscal Year 2013, which begins on July 1, 2013, the maximum average monthly wage used to calculate workers’ compensation benefits will be increased to $5,222.63. This is applicable to injuries on claims filed after July 1, 2013. If you have a claim established already, this increase will not affect your benefits. The maximum temporary total disability benefit in Nevada is 66 2/3 of the maximum average monthly wage. So, if you are out of work for a month and file a claim after July 1, 2013, the most you would receive in compensation benefits for the month is $3,481.75. If you earned less than the maximum average monthly wage at the time of your injury, you will receive 66 2/3 of your actual earned wages.
