Your weekly checks are calculated by averaging your wages in the one year prior to your date of injury. You are then eligible to receive two-thirds of this amount for any week that you miss work due to your work injury. The insurance company must take into account overtime and bonuses when calculating your weekly benefits. The insurance company will refer to your weekly check as “TTD” which stands for “temporary total disability.” There is a 7 day waiting period before your weekly benefits are due to start. If you are out of work for more than 21 days, then you are eligible to be reimbursed for the 7 day waiting period.
