How much will I get paid if I’m injured at work and I’m unable to return to work?

If you meet the requirements for Temporary Total Disability (TTD) as defined in Georgia’s Workers’ Compensation statute, your TTD is computed by taking 2/3 of your Average Weekly Wage (AWW), not to exceed a maximum amount permitted by statute.AWW is computed using your gross weekly income from the 13 months immediately prior to your date of injury. For workers injured BETWEEN July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2019, the maximum TTD amount is $575.00 per week. If you were injured on or after July 1, 2016, the maximum weekly TTD amount is $675.00 per week.

If you are entitled to Temporary Partial Disability (TPD) your TPD will be calculated as 2/3’s of the difference between what you are presently making and what you were making before you were injured. For workers injured BETWEEN July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2019, the maximum weekely TPD benefit is $383.00 per week. If you were injured on or after July 1, 2019, the maximum weekly TPD benefit is $450.00 per week.

NOTE: These benefits are based on the date you were injured at work and do not increase over the life of your claim.
