Understanding Workers' Compensation Benefits

Workers' compensation benefits are designed to support individuals who have been injured or become ill as a result of their work. In the state of Illinois, injured workers are entitled to various benefits, including financial compensation for lost wages. These benefits provide crucial support during the recovery period and ensure that workers are not burdened with additional financial stress.

Types of Lost Wages

When it comes to workers' compensation, there are different types of lost wages that an injured worker may be eligible to receive:

  1. Temporary Total Disability (TTD): TTD benefits are provided when an injured worker is unable to return to work temporarily, and thus, loses wages during this period. These benefits typically cover a percentage of the worker's average weekly wage.
  2. Temporary Partial Disability (TPD): TPD benefits come into play when an injured worker can return to work, but due to their injury, can only perform lighter duties or earn less than their pre-injury wage. In such cases, TPD benefits cover the wage differential.
  3. Permanent Total Disability (PTD): PTD benefits are available to workers who are permanently unable to return to their previous job or any other type of substantial gainful employment due to their work-related injury. These benefits provide compensation for the loss of future earning capacity.
  4. Permanent Partial Disability (PPD): PPD benefits are provided to workers who have suffered a permanent impairment or loss of use of specific body parts due to a workplace injury. Compensation is awarded based on the severity of the impairment and its impact on the worker's ability to earn a living.
