How often will I receive my total temporary disability check and what do I do if I don’t receive it on time?

You should receive your total temporary disability check on a weekly basis.  If you don’t receive it on time, contact the insurance adjuster to request an explanation.  If you’re under an Award and your check is more than ten days late, you can also request a 20 percent late payment penalty.
