    Default What to Do if You're Running Out of Workers Comp Benefits

    Hi I injured my back in 2011. Since I have had 2 surgeries which are not helping. My legs are now affected. I am almost out of temp partial and temp total. All Dr's n surgeons say I am too young to get 2 level fusion. I am not even close to mmi.
    What do I do when benefits are out?
    Will I get a settlement after I reach mmi?
    I have done everything asked of me, had two IMES done which they sided with me. But losing my little 350 a week is a big deal to my family. Right now I am struggling to work 2 four hr shifts a week.

    You may qualify for an extension of TTD if you're in a retraining program otherwise you may go on PPD. benefits.
    If you don't have a lawyer, now's the time to retain one.

    Discontinuing TTD
    One hundred and thirty weeks of TTD have been paid, except in the case of retraining.

    Permanent partial disability (PPD) benefits
    • PPD benefits compensate for permanent loss-of-use of a body part.
    These benefits are paid after temporary total disability ends, at approximately the same rate and intervals.
    • You may request payment of PPD in a lump sum.
    Permanent partial disability (PPD) benefits are payable for the permanent functional loss of use of the body based upon a disability schedule.
