About Workers' Compensation
Employers in Mississippi having five or more employees must purchase workers' compensation coverage through insurance carriers, or qualify with the Mississippi Workers' Compensation Commission as a self-insurer.
Compensation is two-thirds of the claimant's wages up to the maximum of two-thirds of the average weekly wage, or $235.84, for up to 450 weeks, but not to exceed $106,128 excluding medical payments. These amounts are indexed on an annual basis.
