Policy Purpose

When the monthly pension paid to a worker for the physical loss (permanent impairment) resulting from an accident does not adequately compensate the worker for the loss of earning capacity caused by the injury, the WCB may also pay Special Additional Compensation (SAC).

This policy describes when SAC will be paid, for how long, and in what amount.  It only applies to accidents that occurred before January 1, 1992.
