What monetary benefits are available if I become disabled?
If a workplace accident or injury leaves you disabled, the monetary benefits you will be entitled to receive under workers’ compensation will depend on the degree and duration of your disability. Benefits are paid for Temporary Total Disability (TTD), Temporary Partial Disability (TPD), Permanent Partial Disability (PPD), and Permanent Total Disability (PTD).
Benefit amounts will be based on the wages you were earning before your disability and on the degree of disability. In the case of Permanent Partial Disability, your benefit amount will be based on your previous wages and the percentage of disability (impairment rating) assigned by your treating physician after you reach maximum medical improvement (MMI).
