Average Monthly Wage Increased for Fiscal Year 2013

By Jason Weinstock on June 24, 2012

 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.
