    Do You Know Your Average Monthly Wage (AMW) And Why Is It Important?

    When referring to Workers’ Compensation, AMW is a crucial factor in determining the benefits an injured worker may receive.

    Calculation and Importance:

    • The AMW is a key component in the calculation of Workers’ Compensation benefits. It it used to determine the amount of compensation an injured worker may receive.
    • The AMW is established by the date of hire of the injured worker. there are multiple calculations, and the insurer must use the highest calculation. If the injured worker was employed for one year or more, the insurer must utilize an 84 day wage calculation as well as a 364 day wage calculation. If the injured worker was employed for less than one year, the insured must calculate the full length of the employment and an 84 day wage calculation if applicable. If the injured worker was employed for less than 30 days, the insurer must use a projected wage calculation.

    Concurrent Employment and AMW:

    • Concurrent employment may impact the AMW, for the purpose of calculation the AMW. If the injured worker has a second job, those wages may be included in the AMW, creating a higher value of the claim.
    • If a claimant has concurrent employment, it can mean more indemnity benefits, and the claimant may need to provide written documentary proof of concurrent employment, including paystubs and W2s, if available.

    Legal Considerations:

    • The determination of AMW and its relationship to concurrent employment can involve legal interpretation and may require the involvement of administrative law judges to make fact-specific determinations.

    Understanding the Average Monthly Wage is essential for both employees and employers, as it directly impacts the benefits an injured worker may receive in the context of Workers’ Compensation.

    What Is Concurrent Employment And How Is It Calculated?

    Concurrent employment refers to a situation where an individual holds more than one job at the same time. when n employee has concurrent employment, the claimant may be entitled to an increase in average weekly wage and ultimately Workers’ Compensation indemnity benefits based on the combined wages received from both employers.
