What is Statutory Permanent Total Disability Compensation?

by Kara Dolan-West | Nov 21, 2013 | Workers' Compensation Benefits

Statutory permanent total disability compensation is different from permanent total disability compensation. Statutory permanent total disability compensation is granted to a person who has lost both eyes, both hands, both arms, both legs, or both feet, or any combination of each, in an industrial accident. Similarly to permanent total disability, statutory permanent total disability compensation was created to benefit the injured worker for the remainder of the injured workers’ life. However, unlike PTD, under statutory permanent total disability compensation, an injured worker may still be eligible for compensation even if the injured worker is capable of working, or is currently working.
