Subsequent Injuries Fund


When an employee has a previous permanent disability or impairment and sustains a subsequent injury, the employer is not liable for the combined disability, but only for that caused by the later injury. However, when the combined permanent disability is at least 70% and certain other criteria are met, the employee may receive additional compensation from the Subsequent Injuries Fund. About 400 claims are filed with the Subsequent Injuries Fund annually, at a cost of about $6.5 million. About half the cost is financed by death benefits paid to the state in cases where the deceased employee had no dependents and the balance is paid by an annual General Fund appropriation.
