Workers’ Compensation Benefits

The potential benefits you may receive include the following, depending on the circumstances of your injuries:

  • Temporary Total Disability Benefits
    • Employees will receive temporary total disability benefits during the “healing period.” Employees who become disabled to the point that they cannot return to work may also be able to receive temporary total disability benefits.
  • Temporary Partial Disability
    • Injured employees that are not completely disabled but still recovering will receive temporary partial disability. These payments are applied when the individual can perform limited or part-time duties at a reduced income level. These payments are temporary.
  • Permanent Total Disability Benefits
    • Permanent total disability benefits are payable when an employee sustains a permanent, total disability. For example, if both arms, eyes, feet, hands, legs, or a combination of the previous are totally disabled, the individual will receive permanent total disability benefits.
  • Permanent Partial Disability Benefits
    • Workers will receive permanent partial disability benefits if their injuries do not leave a worker permanently disabled but result in some permanent impairment. This benefit plan can vary depending on the individual’s average weekly wage. Permanent partial disability benefits will be received weekly.
