Benefit Dollar Amounts - Accidents from 1998
Document No.
18-01-02

Policy

On January 1 every year, the WSIB indexes certain dollar amounts set out in the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act, 1997 (WSIA) and the maximum average earnings in each accident year from 1998 onward.

Purpose

The purpose of this policy is to identify the yearly values of dollar amounts set out in legislation and maximum average earnings.

Guidelines

Dollar amounts set out in legislation

The following dollar amounts set out in legislation, which are used to determine the amount of certain benefits, are indexed annually:

  • minimum amounts for full loss of earnings (FLOE) and partial loss of earnings (PLOE) benefits
  • base amount, adjustment factor, maximum amount, minimum amount, and lump sum threshold for non-economic loss (NEL) benefits
  • base amount, adjustment factor, maximum amount, and minimum amount for survivors’ lump sum
  • minimum amount of periodic payments for a surviving spouse and child/ren
  • minimum amount of net average earnings (NAE) for calculating periodic payments for surviving spouse(s) where no child/ren or for surviving child/ren where no spouse(s), and
  • minimum burial or cremation amount.

Exception

The maximum amounts of fines for offences are not indexed see 22-01-05, Offences and Penalties - General.

NOTE

Prior to April 30, 2011, the loss of retirement income (LRI) lump sum threshold was an annually indexed amount. For workers who turn age 65 on or after April 30, 2011 the lump sum threshold is the maximum average earnings for the year in which the worker turns age 65.

Maximum average earnings

With respect to WSIB benefits, the maximum average earnings are used to calculate earnings-based benefits (e.g., loss of earnings (LOE) benefits, survivors’ periodic payments) and are the lump sum threshold for LRI benefits for workers who turn age 65 on or after April 30, 2011 (see Note above).

Maximum average earnings are identified in each accident year, and are 175 per cent of the average industrial wage (AIW) for Ontario from published Statistics Canada earnings data from the year prior to the accident year. The maximum average earnings are indexed every January 1 thereafter.

Indexing factor

The indexing factor is the percentage adjustment applied to values that are subject to annual indexing (e.g., dollar amounts set out in legislation, maximum average earnings) to account for inflation. The indexing factor is prescribed by legislation.

Information about the indexing method can be found in 18-01-14, Annual Indexing.

On or after January 1, 2018

For entitlement periods on or after January 1, 2018, the indexing factor is the percentage change in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for Canada for all items, for the 12-month period ending on October 31 of the previous year, as published by Statistics Canada (also referred to as CPI). This factor is applicable for all values subject to annual indexing, and is referred to in the WSIA as the ‘Indexing Factor’.

Between January 1, 1998 and December 31, 2017

For entitlement periods between January 1, 1998 and December 31, 2017 (inclusive), as outlined in the WSIA, different indexing factors are applicable depending on the benefit type, the amount, and the year:

  • Alternate Indexing Factor: the percentage change in the CPI for Canada for all items, for the 12-month period ending on October 31 of the previous year, as published by Statistics Canada (also referred to as CPI)
  • General Indexing Factor: (1/2 x Alternate Indexing Factor) - 1 (also referred to as modified Friedland)
  • Temporary Indexing Factor: an amount prescribed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council by regulation to replace the General Indexing Factor for a given year
  • Additional Adjustment: an amount prescribed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council by regulation in addition to the General and/or Alternate Indexing Factors for a given year

Other rates

For benefit dollar amounts for accident dates prior to January 1, 1998 see 18-01-03, Benefit Dollar Amounts - Accidents before 1998. For other rates reviewed annually and set by the WSIB see 18-01-05, Table of Rates. 

Annual indexing

The Indexing Factor for 2018 is 1.5%.

Maximum average earnings: 2018 accident year

The maximum average earnings for the 2018 accident year are:

AIW                 x 175% = maximum average earnings (rounded to nearest $100)
$51,587.54   x 175% = $90,300.00

NOTE

For workers who turn age 65 on or after April 30, 2011 the LRI lump sum threshold is the maximum average earnings for the year in which the worker turns age 65. The threshold is $90,300 for workers who turn age 65 in 2018.
