Temporary Total Disability (TTD)
After a workers’ compensation related injury, you may be required to miss time from work. During this time, your weekly benefit amount is calculated based on your earnings prior to the injury.
• Two-thirds of your average weekly wage (AWW) with a weekly maximum rate of $525.00 for injuries after July 31, 2013.
• TTD Benefits can last up to 400 weeks from the date of the injury.
Temporary Partial Disability (TPD)
In some cases, you may be able to return to the workplace after a workers’ compensation injury. Temporary Partial Disability (TPD) is awarded when it is possible to perform limited work responsibilities. Since limited work activity is recommended, your earning capacity is reduced.
• Two-thirds of the difference between your average weekly way before and after the injury, which can last for 350 weeks maximum from the date of the injury.
Permanent Partial Disability (PPD)
Permanent partial disability provides a cash benefit for employees who experience a permanently reduced physical ability due to a workplace injury. Under Georgia law, you may be entitled to a PPD payment without missing a day of work following an injury.
