Workers' compensation

Workers' compensation consist of the payments that are received by individuals with employment-related injuries and illnesses and by the survivors of individuals who died of employment-related causes. The payments are from both Federal and state government funds.

The state estimates of the payments received from the Federal fund, which covers only Federal civilian employees, are based on payments data from the Department of Labor.

Compensation payments to both public and private employees from state-administered workers' compensation funds consist of the payments received under exclusively state-administered workers' compensation insurance programs, the payments received under state-administered insurance programs that compete with private insurance programs, and the payments received under the state-administered programs for second-injury funds.
