Workers' Compensation

Workers' Compensation provides benefits to you if you are disabled as a result of an on-the-job injury or work-related illness.

This program provides payments for total disability equal to two-thirds of your weekly earnings, up to the maximum benefit determined by New York state. Payments for permanent partial disability equal 50 percent of your weekly earnings, up to the maximum benefit determined by New York state. This coverage also provides benefits for your medical treatment, for your loss of sight, hearing, or limbs, and survivor income.

Your benefits will begin on the sixth consecutive business day of absence and continue as long as you remain disabled. Information regarding your disability or illness will be reviewed, monitored, and approved by Rensselaer's medical contractor or designee.

Rensselaer pays the full cost of this benefit.

Who is eligible?
