The oldest insurance program in the United States is Workers’ Compensation. Workers who engaged in dangerous jobs needed financial protection in the event of a work related injury.
The majority of Workers’ Compensation programs are administered at the state level, giving workers a variety of differences from one state to another. It is important to know your own state’s guidelines, and whether it is even required for your employee to be insured through Workers’ Compensation.
This infographic explains the differences in state-by-state statutory waiting periods, coverage requirements, maximum temporary total disability benefits, compensation rates, and maximum benefit durations.
