We are also here to help you informally resolve any problems or disputes that might arise between the parties involved in your claim, and we can answer your questions about the workers’ compensation system. There is no charge for our services.

House Bill 5203 from the 2012 Legislative Session, which was signed by Governor Scott on April 20, 2012, transferred workers' compensation reemployment services responsibilities from the Department of Education to the Division of Workers' Compensation.

The calculators can be used by anyone, but are
specifically designed to assist injured employees in
estimating their wage replacement benefits. They are highly
interactive and will assist injured employees in
understanding how temporary disability and impairment
benefits are determined. To access these calculators, please
visit the “Injured Employee” section of our web site. On the
right side of the web page, you will find the icon to click
for the Benefit Calculators.
In addition, the calculators include links to the relevant sections in Chapter 440, F.S., and Rule 69L, F.A.C, that further educate injured employees on wage replacement benefits.
If you have any questions, please contact Stephen Yon, Chief, Bureau of Employee Assistance and Ombudsman Office at (850) 413-1786 or Stephen.Yon@MyFloridaCFO.com.
