How Long Does Workers’ Compensation Last in Florida?
The duration of your workers’ compensation benefits in Florida will depend on whether you suffered a temporary or permanent on-the-job injury and the extent of your recovery. Further, benefits for a temporary injury will not be paid after 260 weeks (i.e., five years) from the date of your injury, regardless of the state of your recovery. If you have a permanent injury that prevents you from working a sedentary job, such permanent benefits could continue until the age of 75.
