Are there maximum and minimum levels of compensation?
Maximum disability compensation in Nevada is 66-2/3 percent of the average monthly wage (NRS 616A.065). For FY 2012 (July 1, 2011 – June 30, 2012), the maximum considered wage for this calculation is $5,151.57, which after multiplying by 66 2/3% yields a maximum monthly disability compensation of $3,434.38. There is no minimum payment for disability; however, NRS 616A.120 – 616A.205, inclusive, specify deemed wages for various types of volunteers, job trainees, county board members and others.
