Weekly Payments - Entitlement

A person who is partially or totally incapacitated for work because of a non-imminently fatal asbestos-related disease may be eligible to receive weekly payments in addition to lump sum compensation. This would apply where they were:

  • employed for at least 2 months immediately before making the application for compensation; or
  • they were employed for a total of 6 months in the 12 month period before the application was made and would have been employed on the date the application for compensation was made if they did not have the asbestos-related disease.
