6.4.4 Cessation of Incapacity Payments at Age 65
Last amended: 10 October 2013
However, incapacity payments may continue past age 65 where the person was injured after reaching age 63. In these circumstances, section 121 provides that incapacity compensation may be paid for a maximum of 104 weeks (whether consecutive or not) after injury.
Note: Other forms of compensation (e.g. medical expenses, permanent impairment, household care) still continue to be payable after age 65.
