Wisconsin Worker’s Compensation Benefits Include:
- Coverage of all reasonable and necessary medical costs, and
- Benefits for temporary wage loss (Temporary Partial Disability (TPD) or Temporary Total Disability (TTD) sustained by an employee while recovering from an injury. Eligibility for temporary disability benefits is determined and must be documented by a doctor. Benefits for temporary wage loss due to disability are based on two-thirds of employee’s wage rate up to a specified maximum amount, and
- Benefits for permanent disability [Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) or Permanent Total Disability (PTD)] if the employee does not fully recover from the injury. Permanent disability is awarded for the potential, or actual, loss of earning capacity. The amount of payment for permanent disability depends on the seriousness of the permanent disability, and
- Loss of Earning Capacity: If an employee sustains an injury to the neck, torso, head, mind and is placed on permanent restrictions which prevent him or her from returning to his or her pre-injury employer at 85% of his or her former wages, he or she may have a claim for loss of earning capacity (LOEC). There is no LOEC claim if the employer makes a good faith job offer that is refused by the employee.
