temporary total disability (ttd)TTD benefits are available to employees whose injuries leave them totally unable to work for a period of time.

In some states, if the employee must return to work at partial hours or at a wage loss while his disability resolves he may be entitled to payment of TPD benefits after receiving TTD benefits.
