Happy new year everyone! From all of us at Clement Rivers LLP, we hope that 2021 will bring you much success and that you all stay safe and healthy.
We will be sending you an updated Workers’ Compensation information sheet in the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, we wanted to let you know that the Commission has announced that the maximum compensation for 2021 is $903.40. This is up $36.73 from the 2020 compensation rate, which is the biggest increase ever according to the Commission’s charts.
The mileage reimbursement rate for 2021 is 56 cents per mile, which is down 1.5 cents from last year. The Commission has not yet officially announced this rate, but the rate is always based on the standard business mileage rate established by the Internal Revenue Service.
As always, if you have questions about how these changes may affect your claims, please feel free to contact us.
