North Carolina WC pays 2/3 of the worker’s average weekly wage up to a State determined
maximum. To see the weekly maximum visit: http://www.ic.nc.gov/ncic/pages/maxrates.htm
The individual will receive the payments for the duration of the disability except
for Permanent Partial (PP) Disabilities, which have a limit of 300 weeks.
To verify WC payments, check that WC evidence is not already in file. Check the Workers'
Compensation (WC) Resource Page in DI 52140.020 since NC is a State that provides SSA with access to its online records. The value
of online records can vary from State to State and some development may still be required.
However, the sites available usually provide contact information for the employer,
WC carrier or the WC attorney, which can jump-start the development process. Also
included in the WC resource intranet site is a list of individuals in the PC with
online access to those individual State records.
