    For example, if you were injured on January 15, 2017, and you had an average weekly wage of $1,200.00, your Louisiana Workers Compensation Temporary Total Disability benefit would be $657.00 per week. This is the maximum weekly benefit you can receive when you are temporarily totally disabled.

    In another example, if you were injured on January 15, 2017, and you had an average weekly wage of $500.00, your Louisiana Workers Compensation Temporary Total Disability benefit would be $333.33 per week.

    There is also a minimum compensation for total disability, but in any case, where the employee was receiving wages at a rate less than the applicable minimum compensation, the compensation shall be the employee’s actual “wages”.

    Temporary Total Disability Benefits are paid weekly or bi-weekly depending on how you were paid while working. The first payment is due within fourteen days of the date you become disabled.
