Q: I have been told about programs such as Temporary Total Disability (TTD). Am I eligible for this?
A:In Georgia, certain stipulations apply in order to be eligible for TTD. In order to receive these benefits, it must be determined by a professional that you are indeed unable to work and that you are eligible for worker’s compensation. However, it should be noted that TTD is not a full-benefit program. It affords the recipient a maximum of two-thirds of the average weekly wages that he received prior to injury. These and other programs can be beneficial in a time of crisis but can be somewhat intricate to learn about and understand. Your best recourse is to contact a capable and knowledgeable worker’s compensation attorney to secure your financial stability in a time of medical hardship.
