Georgia Workers' Comp. Disability Benefit Amounts
Here are the dollar figures you can expect to discuss after being injured on the job in Georgia:
- Temporary total disability benefits (TTD) amount to lost wages equating to two-thirds of the average weekly wage of the employee with a current cap of $575 per week, where the employee is unable to work due to injury.
- Temporary partial disability benefits (TPD) account for lost wages equating to two-thirds of the difference between the employee's pre-injury average weekly wage, and his or her actual wages after the injury if the employee returns to work on light-duty, and sustains a loss in wage earning capacity, or finds a new job with lower pay that accommodates these restrictions.
