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 2/3rds 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 2/3rds 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.
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.
