A Closer Look at Temporary Total Disability Benefits
Depending on your circumstances, you may be entitled to receive Temporary Total Disability (TTD) benefits. These checks are the law’s main financial protection for an injured worker’s family expenses. Temporary Total Disability (TTD) benefits are payable when employees become totally disabled on a temporary basis as a result of workplace activities.
After a seven day waiting period, employees are entitled to obtain weekly benefits equal to two-thirds of their average weekly wage up to the maximum compensation rate set by the North Carolina Industrial Commission. If the disability continues for more than 21 days, the employee is entitled to receive these workers’ compensation benefits for the first seven days as well.
The circumstances surrounding how and why a worker receives Temporary Total Disability (TTD) are the most significant issues in the vast majority of disputed workers’ compensation cases. Consulting a North Carolina Board Certified Specialist in Workers’ Compensation law may be the best way to plan for and handle a Temporary Total Disability (TTD) dispute.
