Q:
How much money could I receive for my SJDV?

A:

For injuries occurring between Jan. 1, 2004 and Dec. 31, 2012, the amount of the voucher depends on the amount of your disability award:

·    Up to $4,000 voucher for permanent partial disability of less than 15 percent

·    Up to $6,000 voucher for permanent partial disability between 15 and 25 percent

·    Up to $8,000 voucher for permanent partial disability between 26 and 49 percent

·    Up to $10,000 voucher for permanent partial disability between 50 and 99 percent

For injuries occurring on or after Jan 1, 2013, the amount of the voucher is a flat $6000, however, you may also qualify for an additional $5000.00 using the newly established RTWSP (Return to Work Supplemental Fund).

You should discuss all of your options with your attorney to make the best decision about returning to the work force, especially if you are considering going into a new field of work.
