Workers' Compensation Safety Board of Nova Scotia

Claim Benefits and Services

When a claim is accepted, the WCB will begin paying benefits on that claim to the injured worker. For more information on how and when benefits are paid, check out the  Claim Payment Processing Schedule. There are several different types of benefits and services, designed to help you recover from your injury or illness as you return to work or to help keep you and your family secure from the impact of a workplace injury.

If you have questions about your benefits or payments, you can talk to your case worker securely using WCB Online.
