What Type Of Disability Benefits Can I Get If Im Not Able To Work Due To My Workrelated Injury

Once you’ve missed more than seven (7) days of work as a result of your work-related injury, you are entitled to receive Temporary Total Disability Benefits (“TTD Benefits”); however, you are not entitled to TTD benefits for the first seven days you miss from work unless you miss more than twenty-one (21) consecutive days as a result of your injury.  If you are entitled to TTD Benefits, your first check should be mailed to you within twenty-one (21) days after the first date you are disabled.

TTD Benefits are paid at a rate of two-thirds of an injured worker’s Average Weekly Wage, but will not exceed the maximum rate available under the law as of the worker’s date of the accident.  For non-catastrophic injuries that occur on or after July 1, 1992, an injured worker is limited to a maximum of 400 weeks of TTD Benefits beginning from the date of accident.
