What To Know About Wage Loss Benefits & How They Work
If you have been injured on the job, there are several benefits available through Minnesota’s workers’ compensation system. One of the most basic and important is wage loss benefits. Simply put, these are payments that partially replace the wages you were earning before your injury.
Despite a workers’ compensation system created to promptly and fairly provide coverage to injured workers, wage loss benefits are often more difficult to obtain than they should be. But working with the right lawyer can make a big difference. At Bradt Law Offices, we have been advocating for injured workers in Northern Minnesota for 35 years. We have helped hundreds of your friends and neighbors, and we can help you, too.
There are three basic types of wage loss benefits available under Minnesota Worker’s Compensation:
- Temporary Total Disability benefits (TTD) – These are benefits paid to someone who is off work completely because of a work injury.
- Temporary Partial Disability benefits (TPD) – These are partial wage loss benefits paid to someone who is working after an injury, with physical restrictions, but earning less than the pre-injury wage.
- Permanent Total Disability benefits (PTD) – These are benefits paid to someone who is off work completely because of a work injury and is permanently unemployable.
