Workers' compensation benefits for temporary total disability, temporary partial disability, permanent total disability and dependency benefits result in eligibility to receive annual increases to the weekly rate during the life of a claim. The date of injury determines if any adjustments are due, when the first adjustment is made and the percent increase that is applied.

For dates of injury between Oct. 1, 1995, and Sept. 30, 2013, cost-of-living adjustments are made on the fourth anniversary of the injury. For dates of injury on and after Oct. 1, 2013, cost-of-living adjustments are made on the third anniversary of the injury.
