5.8.1 Eligibility criteria for interim permanent impairment payments

An interim payment of permanent impairment (PI) compensation can be made under section 75 of the MRCA where:

  • the impairment suffered by the person as a result of the accepted conditions is at least the number of impairment points (IPs) required in the circumstances of the individual case (see 5.8.2); and
  • this impairment is likely to continue indefinitely; but
  • a final assessment of the degree of impairment cannot be made because one or more of the accepted conditions have not stabilised.
