    when your recovery is completed and you've gotten an impairment rating the state will calculate your permanent partial disability amount. The higher the rating the greater the number of weeks you're entitled.

    Alice,
    There are statutes that guide the provision of benefits...those FAQ's for IW can be found here...http://www.dwd.state.wi.us/wc/worker...s_included.htm

    Benefits for permanent partial disability (PPD) or permanent total disability (PTD) are paid if the employee does not fully recover from the injury. Permanent disability is awarded for the potential or actual loss of earning capacity. The amount of benefit payment for permanent disability depends on the severity of the permanent disability.
    When your PTP has determined you have reached MMI, a evaluation to your impairment/condition will be made, and a rating provided.
    The rating will determine how many weeks of PD/PPD you are entitled to. The state has set the number of weeks for indemnity due to the disability/impairment.

    what is the initial date they use for it to start? Date of injury?, date determination for becoming PPD was made?,

    The date your PTP declares you MMI... TTD ends, and PD/PPD is to begin..(states vary on how soon the payments are to start...)

    How do they determine when you actually became PPD? When the IME says so? when your doctor says so?,

    When your PTP/treating physican determines you are MMI/PPD...OR, IF there is a dispute, when the QME/IME makes the determination..

    OR, if the issue must go to the WC board/court for a decision. So the actual date the benefits begin can vary depending on the facts of your claim.

    alice: your permanent disability status begins when you are declared to have reached Maximum Medical Improvement. an MMI determination can be made by any doctor.
