What Are Temporary Disability Claims?

Temporary disability claims are intended for workers who are temporarily unable to perform their jobs due to work-related injuries or illnesses but are expected to recover. There are two main types of temporary disability benefits:

  • Temporary Total Disability (TTD): These benefits apply if you are completely unable to work during your recovery period.
  • Temporary Partial Disability (TPD): If you can still work but must reduce your hours or perform lighter duties, TPD benefits may compensate for your loss of income.

How Do Permanent Disability Claims Work?

Permanent disability claims come into play when an injury or illness results in a lasting impairment that affects your ability to work. Depending on the severity and permanence of your impairment, you may be eligible for:

  • Permanent Partial Disability (PPD): This type of benefit is provided when an injury results in a permanent impairment that partially limits your ability to work.
  • Permanent Total Disability (PTD): If you are permanently unable to return to any form of gainful employment, PTD benefits are designed to support you financially.

What Should You Know About Medical Treatment Claims?

Workers' compensation covers all necessary and reasonable medical care related to your work injury. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Hospital and emergency services
  • Medical and surgical treatment
  • Prescription medications
  • Necessary rehabilitation

To ensure coverage, it’s important that the medical provider you choose is authorized under the workers’ compensation program.

Can Vocational Rehabilitation Claims Help You Return to Work?

If you are unable to return to your previous job due to your injury, vocational rehabilitation benefits are designed to help you re-enter the workforce. These services may include:

  • Job training and retraining programs
  • Resume writing and interview preparation workshops
  • Job searching and placement assistance

Vocational rehabilitation programs are there to assist in identifying suitable employment opportunities that align with your capabilities.
