In Texas there are four types of income benefits. Temporary Income Benefits (TIBs), Impairment Income Benefits (IIBs), Supplemental Income Benefits (SIBs) and Lifetime Income Benefits (LIBs). The maximum benefit amount allowed by state law is based on your average weekly wage (AWW).  Contact Mayfield Law Office to find out if you are receiving the maximum amount of benefits allowed under Texas State Law.

  • Temporary Income Benefits (TIBs)

You become eligible for Temporary income benefits after you have missed seven days of work. Your Temporary Income Benefits will be equivalent to 70 percent of the difference between your average weekly wage and the wages you are able to earn after your compensable injury.

  • Impairment Income Benefits (IIBs)

You could be eligible for Impairment Benefits the day after you reach Maximum medical Improvement (MMI), if you suffer from a permanent impairment for your compensable injury, and you have a valid Impairment Rating. You should receive three weeks of IIBs for each percentage of your impairment rating (IR).

  • Supplemental  Income Benefits (SIBs)

You could be eligible for Supplemental Income Benefits (SIBs) the day after Impairment benefits end. These income benefits are applied for quarterly and are based on the 13 weeks of job searches prior to the Supplemental Income Benefits application. This is considered the qualifying period.

  • Lifetime Income Benefits (LIBs)

If you have an injury that causes you to have a permanent impairment then you could be eligible for lifetime income benefits (LIBs). They are paid from the time it is determined that your injury meets one of the qualifying conditions listed for Lifetime Income Benefits.
