Each year, the State of California sets the minimum and maximum total temporary disability payment rates.
The new 2022 minimum and maximum temporary total disability (TTD) rates effective on January 1, 2022, will be $230.95, per week for the minimum rate and $1,539.71, for the maximum.
What Does This Rate Change Mean For Injured Workers?
For Injured Workers with injuries on or after 1/1/22, they will be paid in accordance with the rates listed above. With some exceptions, one’s TTD rate is calculated as 2/3rds of one’s Average Weekly Wage. For those with earning less than $346.77, per week will be paid the minimum rate.
For Injured Workers with injuries before 1/1/22, if they are continuing on TTD and the payment is two years or past the date of injury, their payments will be adjusted to the 2022, effective rate based upon their average weekly wage. This is pursuant to Labor Code Section 4661.5.
