Question :
What are the Workers' Compensation benefits payable for loss body members?
Answer :
Appendix A contains the number of weeks of benefits payable for 100% loss, or loss of use, of the body member. If the PPD rating is less than 100%, the percentage rating is multiplied by the number of weeks shown. For example a 20% loss or loss of use, of a thumb would be computed as 20% of 60 weeks or 12 weeks of PPD benefits.

Loss of thumb - 60 weeks
Loss of first finger - 35 weeks

Loss of third finger - 25 weeks
