How long do you have to be out of work to get workman's compensation?

Under Pennsylvania law, your disability must last more than 7 days for you to be entitled to receive wage loss benefits. You need not be completely out of work. If you are working light duty as a result of your work injury and you are earning less than your pre-injury wages, you are entitled to receive benefits.
