TTD is the compensation payable when an injured worker is not able to work due to the allowed conditions in their claim. TTD is requested when the physician of record (POR) completes a C84. Once a period of temporary total disability has been authorized, it will generally continue as long a the POR continues to complete C84's.
TTD will end when:
- The POR releases an injured worker to full duty
- The injured worker actually returns to work or
- the injured worker is found Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI).
