ICARE PIAWE Review and Remediation Program

ICARE NSW is inviting injured workers who received weekly workers compensation payments between October 2012 and October 2019 in NSW to come forward if they believe they may have been underpaid their weekly entitlements by the Workers Compensation Insurer.

ICARE is reviewing all weekly payments made during that period and recalculating the PIAWE (Pre-Injury Average Weekly Earnings) rate to determine if there was an underpayment.  If ICARE determines that the Workers Compensation Insurer underpaid, you may be eligible to receive back payments of weekly compensation

ICARE has found that many workers have not been paid their correct weekly payments because of the complex process required to determine PIAWE.

There has been an estimate that workers have been underpaid $80 million and iCare now wants to ensure that workers have been paid correctly.

To register your details and request a reassessment of your pre-injury earnings you can do so here on the ICARE website – Request review of PIAWI
