    Policy revisions allow WCB to provide cost relief for claim costs resulting from a motor vehicle accident in which the third party is unknown or uninsured.
  • 2022 annual updates
    We updated cost-of-living adjustments (COLA) and clothing allowances for 2022. There are no changes to maximum compensable earnings, burial, cremation and memorial expenses, or travel and subsistence allowance rates.
