When Do Temporary Partial Disability Benefits Stop?

If you have suffered an illness or injury that is work-related, you could be entitled to workers’ comp benefits. If your claim is denied or you don’t believe the payments you are receiving are correct, you may need to consult with aRichmondworkers’ comp attorney.

The type of benefits an injured worker receives will depend on whether the injury is temporary or permanent, and if it is a partial or total disability. In cases where healing is expected and the employee is able to work part-time or perform light duty tasks, then temporary partial disability benefits may be available.

These benefits will stop however, when your treating physician authorizes you to return to work on a full-time basis or if a worker is released back to normal job duties.

It is important that you notify your employer as soon as possible about changes in your ability to work. The exact timeframe in which benefits stop will depend on the date your physician allows you to return to work.

Even though you may be eligible to receive temporary partial disability benefits, it doesn’t mean your claim will be automatically approved. If it was wrongfully denied, you may need to seek legal counsel.
