Getting weekly compensation

We’ll pay up to 80% of your income as weekly compensation if you’re unable to work or do your usual duties because of an injury we're covering. This means you’ll still get paid while you recover. Apply for weekly compensation using your MyACC account.

Am I eligible for weekly compensation?

You become eligible 1 week after your injury stopped you from working some or all of your usual work duties – but get the set up started now. It doesn’t matter if your injury happened at work, at home, or elsewhere in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Answer the questions below to see if you're eligible.

1. Are you employed?
