    Default Who Determines Your Vocational Disability Rating

    Who decides what your vocational rating percentage will be ?
    Does anybody know anything about this.
    And how long does it take to settle a claim after mmi has been reached.?

    Your PTP and IME determine your rating.

    There's no rule saying they have to settle, they can pay out your claim in payments if they wish.
    As a rule, claims settle in the fifth year, by then you've jumped through all the hoops.
    If you've reached MMI, now's the time to retain a lawyer.

    Here's the guide book for your state.
