I have just been given a permanent partial disability rating and am still receiving my lost wage check. Can I get both?

No. You cannot get both total temporary disability benefits at the same time you receive permanent partial disability benefits.  However, once you return to work, your lost wage check stops and your weekly permanent partial disability check begins.
