The Division has increased the maximum weekly benefit rate for income benefits from $850
to $861, and has increased the minimum weekly benefit rate from $127 to $129. The new
weekly benefit rate maximums and minimums are applicable for dates of injury from
October 1, 2014 through September 30, 2015.
The new maximum and minimum weekly benefit rates will not affect dates of injury prior to
October 1, 2014, as the maximum weekly income benefit in effect on the date of injury is
applicable for the entire time that the benefit is payable. Tex. Lab. Code Section 408.061(g).
A table showing maximum and minimum weekly benefit amounts for dates of injury occurring
from January 1, 1991 through the present is available on the Texas Department of Insurance
