Qualifying for Non-Earner Benefits

The survivors of motor vehicle accidents may qualify for non-earner benefits if they meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • “The insured person suffers a complete inability to carry on a normal life as a result of and within 104 weeks after the accident and does not qualify for an income replacement benefit.”
  • The victim cannot carry on a normal life because of the accident and either was enrolled as a full-time student or graduated within the last year but had yet to secure employment related to their higher education.

In other words, non-earner accident benefits are essentially for victims who don’t qualify for Income Replacement Benefits.

How much do non-earners receive?

In contrast to income replacement, non-earner benefits do not fluctuate. First, it’s important to note that non-earners are not entitled to benefits for the first 26 weeks of their disability. After that period ends, there are only two tiers of non-earner benefits, each with a set benefit amount.

  • Up to two years – after the first 26 weeks and up to the two-year mark from the date of injury, the non-earners will receive a weekly entitlement of $185.
  • After two years – after the two-year mark, if the claimant was enrolled in school at the time of injury, the weekly entitlement increases to $320.
