When Will My Benefits Begin And How Much Will They Be?

Temporary total disability (TTD) benefits are paid during the period in which the worker is recovering from an injury or disease and is unable to return to work. TTD is not payable unless the employee is unable to work for more than seven (7) days. If an employee`s disability continues for more than seven (7) days due to a work­related injury, the employee is entitled to benefits for each additional day thereafter he or she is unable to work. If the employee exceeds two (2) weeks off, he or she is entitled to the payment of benefits for the first seven (7) days as well. Weekly benefits for total disability are two­thirds (2/3) of the AWW up to the maximum state average weekly wage (SAWW). The maximum benefit for permanent partial disability is 75% of the SAWW.
