I've Been Categorized As TPD; What Does That Mean?
WHAT IS TTD?
Arizona workman's comp law has some rather funny terms. They are usually shortened versions of what the real word is. TTD stands for Temporary Total Disability. That means you are on a no-work status by your doctor. As such, your work comp checks will begin coming every 14 days. You are not required to look for work and do not need to report any earnings because it is assumed you have none. If you do go back to work, or do start making money while your checks are coming every 14 days, it is very important to notify the workers compensation insurance company. That is because they are paying you as if you are not working. If they find out you are working, they will probably want their money back. They might also want to have you prosecuted for fraud depending upon what statements you have made. Honesty is always the best policy. If you're working, it shows you're a motivated worker. If you're not working, you get part of your lost wages.
Temporary Partial Disability
This means that you have been released to light-duty. This does not mean you can go back to your old job. It just means any type of light duty. For example, construction work probably doesn't have light duty. But, once you've been released for light duty, you must start looking for work. Keep track of where you look since you will have to report that each month before they pay you.
