Workers 63 years or older
If you are 63 or older and on your employer’s payroll, you are covered and entitled to benefits if you’re injured. Learn about the restrictions for earnings loss benefits if you are 63 or older.
If you are 63 years of age or older and on your employer’s payroll in a covered industry, you are entitled to Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) benefits if you’re injured at work. Most benefits will continue for as long as the injury requires, regardless of your age. The only exception is earnings loss benefits.
For workers 63 years old or older, earnings loss benefits can only be paid for a maximum of two years from the date those earnings loss benefits begin, provided you are unable to earn all or part of your earnings because of your injury. Medical confirmation is required.
