Obtaining Wage Loss Benefits for TTD

A temporary total disability is a disability that you are projected to recover from, but that completely prevents you from working until you recover. Temporary total disability (TTD) benefits are a weekly benefit equal to two-thirds of the wages you were earning prior to your injury (subject to a minimum of $130 per week and an $850 maximum per week). TTD benefits are paid up to 130 weeks.

A temporary total disability is an injury that renders you completely unable to do your job for a limited period of time.

Some examples of a TTD include:

  • A back injury renders you bedridden until you recover
  • You work a construction job and sustain an injury that puts you on crutches, making it impossible to do any of the tasks your job requires
  • You need to use a computer and keyboard to do your job but have suffered a hand injury that makes it impossible to type
  • Your doctor has told you to stop going to work until you make a full recovery

So long as you will be able to return to work eventually, an injury that makes it impossible to do your job will be classified as a TTD rather than a permanent total disability. If you can still do some aspects of your job, it may qualify as a permanent partial disability or temporary partial disability.
