How long do benefits last?
The length of time that a benefit lasts depends on the type of benefit you are receiving. Typically, most temporary benefits end once you have reached a complete medical recovery and have returned to work on a full-time basis. Medical benefits will cover medical and travel expenses incurred as a result of your injury and most insurance companies will cover all expenses related to the injury until a complete medical recovery is achieved.

Permanent disability benefits are usually paid until death or until a full medical recovery is achieved. If the injured worker is able to find a new full-time occupation that he or she is able to perform, this may also result in the termination of permanent disability benefits. Similarly, permanent partial impairment payments may also be terminated should the worker make a complete medical recovery or obtain a new full-time occupation.

The period of time that death benefits are paid to eligible dependents largely depends on the laws governing the state in which the deceased worker was employed.
