Weekly (Temporary) Workers Compensation Benefits
If a doctor says you are completely unable to work, you will receive weekly wage replacement benefits called Temporary Total Disability (TTD) benefits. The weekly benefit is two-thirds of your average gross (before taxes) weekly income.
If you are able to work only part-time, you receive Temporary Partial Disability (TPD) which is two-thirds the difference between what you were making before and what you are making in the new job. For more information, including how long you can receive this temporary benefit, visit the Temporary Benefits section.
Medical Workers Compensation Benefits
You are entitled to payment of medical care, medicines, and supplies that are reasonable and necessary to treat your work injury for the rest of your life. You have the right to choose your own doctor. For more information visit the Medical Benefits section.
If your work injury prevents you from returning to employment for which you have previous training or experience, or because of your injury you are unable to find work close in pay to your pre-injury employment, you may be entitled to Vocational Rehabilitation services. For more info visit the Vocational Rehabilitation section.
Permanency Worker’s Compensation Benefits
You may be entitled to compensation for permanent loss of function, though not all injuries result in permanent impairment. Permanency benefits are determined when you reach Medical End Result. For more information visit the Permanency Benefits section .
