The Law Offices of Frank J. Dito, Jr.

My attorney was asking about my Average Weekly Wage (AWW). What is he asking about?


Your average weekly wages is used to calculate your total disability benefit rates. Defined at 1/52nd of the injured worker's average annual earnings (200-300 times average daily wage, depending on work schedule), based on the prior year's payroll data. If you were a new worker when you were injured, the workers’ compensation board will use the average wage of a comparably employed worker to determine your disability benefit rates.
