Missouri Temporary Total Disability Benefits Lawyer – If the treating doctor certifies that you are unable to work, you should be entitled to Temporary Total Disability benefits (TTD) under the Missouri Workers Compensation Law when you are off work.
If the treating doctor certifies that you are unable to work, you should be entitled to Temporary Total Disability benefits (TTD) under the Missouri Workers Compensation Law when you are off work. You will not receive TTD benefits for the first three regularly scheduled workdays you are off unless you are off longer than 14 calendar days. Those benefits are calculated at two-thirds of your average weekly wage not to exceed a maximum rate set by the legislature. Your average weekly wage is determined according to how your wages are fixed, whether by the week, by the month, by the year or by some other method, such as amount of sales. Temporary total disability benefits cease when your doctor says you are able to return to work. Although those wages are only two-thirds of your average wage, it is important to remember they are tax-free.
