We received several questions recently about the firm benefit rate applicable to the volunteer firefighters who sustain injuries in the course of and arising out of their volunteer capacity as a firefighter. Specifically, there have been questions about the current applicable 140% of the statewide average weekly wage benefit rate which applies to volunteer firefighters unless their regular full-time earnings are above the 140% statewide average.

To help supply clients with an easy to use resource for their claims, we wanted to provide the following table:

Effective 140% of SAWW
7/1/2023 – 6/30/2024 $1,539.39
7/1/2022 – 6/30/2023 $1,456.78
7/1/2021 - 6/30/2022 $1,403.51
7/1/2020 – 6/30/2021 $1,304.58

If you have any questions about the applicable rates to be applied to your case, please contact Paul Barta or Micah Hawker-Boehnke at (402) 475-1075.
