Disablement Benefit

You may get this after Injury Benefit if you lose any physical or mental abilities because of an occupational accident or disease. A doctor from the Department will first need to examine you to assess the degree of illness or disability so that we can decide the amount of Disablement Benefit you are due. If it is awarded, it can be backdated to the date Injury Benefit ended.
