Information sheet: Whole person impairment


What it contains

On 31 March 2024 changes to Victoria's WorkCover scheme come into effect.

These changes will help make sure the WorkCover scheme can continue to support workers into the future.

As part of these changes, there is now an additional requirement for workers to continue to receive weekly payments after the second entitlement period of 130 weeks. This requirement relates to whole person impairment (WPI).

This information sheet contains general information on WPI. It includes:

  • details about WPI and the second entitlement period review
  • the WPI assessment
  • support for those coming off weekly payments
