Types of Income Benefits
Under workers' compensation, an injured worker may be eligible to receive income benefits as well as medical benefits. Depending on one's disability classification, there are several different types of workers' compensation cash benefits workers may be entitled to:
- Temporary Total Disability (TTD): If your doctor decides that you're totally disabled for a limited period of time, you may be eligible for temporary total disability benefits.
- Temporary Partial Disability (TPD): Similar to Temporary Total Disability, if it's been determined that you are partially disabled for a temporary period, you may be eligible for temporary partial disability benefits.
- Total Partial Disability (TPD): If you're working, but unable to earn as much as you did before your injury and likely to be able to earn the full amount in the future, you could be entitled to total partial disability benefits.
- Permanent Partial Disability (PPD): If part of your wage-earning capacity has been permanently lost, you may be eligible for permanent partial disability benefits. In New York, if you became disabled before March 13, 2007, cash benefits are generally payable for as long as you're disabled, and your disability results in wage loss. If you haven't lost wages as the result of your partial disability, only medical benefits are payable.
