I was injured on 02/04/2011 and was placed on temporary disability on 03/28/2012. Since then, I've continuously received TTD benefits and will run out by the end of march 2014 (in 3 months). I'm completely disabled and unable to do any work. I've just received approval to meet with a spine surgeon following a lengthy AME battle and will be having a fusion surgery very soon (so there's no way i'll be able to work when my TTD benefits run out in a few months.) My attorney tells me that there are absolutely no extensions on TTD and that WC doesnt have to advance me PD benefits, so I may not receive any $ from WC after March. What should I do/what r my options? State disability? Unemployment Insurance? Federal disability/ SSI? I'm 24 y/o, so no Social Security yet.
Thanks for the help.
