For work-related injuries occurring on or after November 1, 2009 the rates of compensation for temporary total disability (TTD), permanent total disability (PTD), and death benefits will increase to $717 per week, and to $359 for permanent partial disability (PPD).

In the past, the court administrator has been required to adjust the rates every three years. In the legislative session just ended, SB901 was enacted to require annual adjustments based on the state's average weekly wage as determined by the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission. The new rates will be effective until October 31, 2010.
