How Are Benefits Calculated in Nevada?


Once a claim is accepted by the insurer or the third-party administrator handling the claim, if the injured worker is off work for more than five days in a row, or five days within a twenty-day time period, temporary total disability benefits (TTD) are paid. In order to pay TTD benefits, the insurer must first get information from the employer on a wage verification form that asks the employer what the injured worker’s gross wages were in the 12 weeks before the date of the injury. Any overtime wages the injured worker earned during those 12 weeks are included. This earnings history is then used to determine the average monthly wage. An injured worker can request that the insurer use a one-year earnings history instead of a 12-week earnings history if that would result in a higher average monthly wage.
