If you have temporary medical restrictions and your employer has not brought you back to work, the worker’s compensation insurance carrier must pay you 2/3 of your gross weekly wages as of the time of the work injury. This is called temporary total disability (TTD). You should be paid every week or every two weeks at the most. If the carrier is constantly late with payments, or if the payments are inconsistent, the best bet is to contact the Worker’s Compensation Division. Dispute resolution specialists there may be able to assist you with minor disputes.
However, if your checks are more than 2 weeks overdue, contact us today. Also contact us if the carrier has never paid TTD despite the fact that you are off work entirely with medical restrictions.
