Maximum North Carolina Weekly Workers’ Compensation Rates

Each year, the North Carolina Industrial Commission sets the maximum weekly benefits that can be paid. This benefit factors in the 2/3 adjustment that workers get. These are the maximum rates over the last 30 years, including the new adjustment of $920.00 for 2015, that injured employees collect depending on the year their accident happened.
