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.

She is a pleasure to work with and I am looking forward to working with her for years to come."
