Temporary Total Disability Rates Have Increased

Minimum and maximum temporary total disability (TTD) rates for 2016 work injury claims have increased as of January 1 as a result of the rise in California's State Average Weekly Wage, according to the California Workers' Compensation Institute.

The average weekly wage rose 2.27 percent from $1,095.70 to $1,120.67 in the 12 months ending March 31, 2015. The TTD benefit is two-thirds of a worker's salary, with a minimum and a maximum amount.  As of January 1, the minimum TTD benefit is $169.26 a week; the maximum is $1,128.43.

Temporary Disability Rate Increase in 2015

In addition to TTD rates, other Workers' Compensation benefits, such as life pensions and permanent total disability benefits for workers injured on or after January 1, 2003, have also increased. 
TTD is a benefit designed to compensate you while you are unable to work and under active medical treatment due to an industrial injury. The amount and duration varies depending on your date of injury and your pre-injury earnings.
