    States vary, but say you filed your claim for WC benefits under your ER's plan...and your claim is denied...whatever reason..

    But, TTD is due from the DOI/Date Of Injury...but not paid.
    Your AA takes the issue to the WC board/court/commission...and 'wins' the TTD for you...You will receive the ''back pay'' in a lump sum, and your AA is due his fee for getting the benefit paid for you...

    TTD is ''wage replacement'' while you recover from your injury/illness...
    It is not the same as receiving ''lost wages''...

    BTW...
    The AA is also due a fee at the end of your claim/case..based on the amount of your award/settlement.


    Here is an overview of WC in MI...http://www.michigan.gov/documents/wc...4_135317_7.pdf
