California Workers Compensation – TTD
In the California Workers’ Compensation system, TTD is an abbreviation for “Temporary Total Disability”. TTD benefits are available to injured workers who are, according to a qualified physician, are temporarily unable to work as a result of their work-related injury or illness.
TTD benefits provide temporary wage replacement to workers for up to 104 weeks at the rate of 2/3 pay, subject to a certain maximum weekly rate.
To be eligible for TTD benefits, an injured worker must first report their injury or illness to their employer and file a workers’ compensation claim. The employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier will then investigate the claim and determine if the worker is eligible for TTD benefits.
It is important to note that the workers’ compensation system in California can be complex, and injured workers may benefit from seeking the assistance of an attorney who specializes in workers’ compensation law to help them navigate the claims process and ensure that they receive the TTD benefits to which they are entitled.
