Mississippi Weekly Maximum Workers’ Compensation Rate for 2020

The Mississippi Workers’ Compensation Commission has announced that the 2020 weekly maximum compensation rate for indemnity benefits is $505.43 for injuries that occur in 2020.  That also establishes the new indemnity maximum for 2020 injuries is $227,443.50.  The $25.00 minimum weekly WC rate remains in effect.  The MWCC has not announced the mileage rate established for travel to and from medical treatment.  We expect it to decrease to $0.575 per mile consistent with the IRS announced rate for 2020.
