If a worker’s claim is handled under the Texas Workers’ Compensation system, their disability benefits are calculated by using their Average Weekly Wage (AWW).
Many people hold done multiple jobs to make ends meet. An accident in one job may prevent the worker from working multiple jobs. A calculation of benefits should include all earning that an injured worker is disabled from performing.
Unlike the DWC-3 form filed by a workers’ employer, the additional earnings from other employers are provided by the injured worker in an Employee’s Multiple Wage Statement Form.
A worker should always confirm their AWW to make sure that it contains all their earnings. It affects the weekly amount and can be a large amount over a two year span.
