What is Temporary Total Disability Compensation?

"Total disability" means that the injured worker is unable to return to his or her former position of employment. A finding of temporary total disability, sometimes referred to as TTD, does not require a showing of complete physical impairment; rather, TTD requires a showing that the injured worker is prevented from performing his or her regular job duties.

Temporary Total Disability compensation is paid when an injured worker misses more than seven days of work, as a result of a work-related injury. Temporary total disability is intended to compensate a disabled worker for his or her loss of earnings resulting from the work-related injury. TTD may be paid in situations where an injured worker is injured and is unable to return to work for a temporary period of time, or even in a situation where an injured worker requires surgery due to a work-related injury and needs time to recover before returning to work.

TTD benefits are typically paid on a biweekly basis and are based on the injured workers' wages earned over the last year of employment. For the first twelve weeks of disability, TTD is paid at 72% of the full weekly wage. The full weekly wage examines recent wages an injured worker earned just before he or she was injured. After the twelve weeks of disability, any continuing TTD benefits are paid at 66.666% of the average weekly wage. The average weekly wage is a calculation of the individual's average wage for the past year of earnings.
