Compensation Deferred & Average Weekly Wage Award MD
#1
Big Grin 
Of course I get these darn letters in th mail over the weekend when my lawyer is unavailable. Case still takes place in Maryland.

I just received a Compensation Deferred and Average Weekly Wage Award letter in the mail. My claim wasn't disputed by insurance, and it said, my average weekly wagr at time of my injury was $500.

Ive been getting $804 biweekly, or $402 weekly, depends on how theyve wanted to send my payments, as they keep changing it.

Does this award mean they have to pay me the $500/week? I read and saw that they can dispute it with the commission, which Im sure they will having to fork out and extra $98, if thats how Im reading this correctly.

Any clarification on this would be helpful. Im new at this w/c stuff and already dont like it

without knowing who it's from it difficult to tell if it's just a proposal or an official award.
I think Maryland pays disability at 2/3 of you average weekly wages.

Check out the information on the website:

In Md, they take a 14 week average to see what you were making.

You will get 60% of that average, which works out to be what your average take home pay was (after taxes were taken out)

This money is NOT tax deductable

How much are the income replacement benefits?

These benefits are called “Temporary Total Disability Payments” and you should receive two thirds of your average weekly wage, but not more than the State’s average weekly wage for the year in which the accident occurred.
