Mississippi bill would increase maximum comp recovery to 520 weeks


Mississippi lawmakers are looking to increase the maximum total recovery time in workers compensation cases by 16 months.

Legislators on Wednesday filed House Bill 200, which would increase maximum total recovery to 520 weeks, from the current 450 weeks.

Compensation for cases involving worker disability or death still cannot exceed two-thirds of the average weekly wage.

The proposed change to 520 weeks of maximum total recovery time would apply to cases of permanent total disability and temporary total disability.

The measure was referred to the House Insurance Committee.
