Weekly wage rate calculator

Injured workers and employers can use the wage rate calculator to estimate benefits for claims over 10 weeks (the long term wage rate).

When estimating weekly benefits, the calculator takes into account a worker's gross earnings and individualized allowable deductions including:

  • Tax credits based on basic personal amounts
  • Probable CPP contributions and EI premiums
  • Spousal credit and wholly dependent person credit
  • Infirm dependant credit.

Additional factors beyond the functionality of the calculator may affect benefit levels. These factors include, but are not limited to:

  • Adjustments of annual income
  • Non-standard work weeks
  • Statutory maximum and minimum payment
  • Existing WorkSafeBC pensions, etc.
