Work injuries are divided into four categories: (i) permanent total incapacity (ii) permanent partial incapacity (iii) temporary incapacity and (iv) fatal injury leading to death of a worker.
In the case of permanent incapacity/disability, benefit is 75% of an insured worker's earnings. If the assessed degree of disability is between 30-100%, a percentage of total disability pension is paid according to the assessed degree of disability. If the assessed degree of disability is less than 30%, worker is entitled to a lump sum of 15 times average monthly earnings.
In the case of temporary disability, 75% of worker's monthly average salary is paid for 12 months. This can be extended to a maximum of 24 months in special cases.
In the case of fatal injury, dependents (widow/widower, children) receive survivors' pension. 40% of the permanent total disability pension a deceased worker would have received, if assessed with permanent total disability, is paid to the widow/widower with permanent disability. This pension does not cease on marriage. 20% of the permanent total disability pension a deceased worker was entitled to receive is paid for each unmarried orphan younger than 18 years. No age limit for disabled children. Law also provides for funeral grant.
