RE: Modifications to Weekly Benefit Tables


Effective January 1, 2013 the social security withholding tax on payroll earnings was increased by 2 percent. Because of this, the compensation rates in the current Weekly Benefit Tables will not be accurate for dates of injury on or after January 1, 2013 through September 30, 2013. Compensation rates are being correctly calculated by our district offices. If you have any questions about this memorandum, please communicate them to the Statistical Division at the Chairman's Office.
