The State of California Department of Industrial Relations announced the total temporary disability rates for 2021 (See DIR Release Number: 2020-95, November 2, 2020.)
The current maximum rate is now $1,356.31, per week. The current minimum rate is to be $203.44.
Thus, total temporary disability payments that are due for dates of injury occurring on 1/1/21, and thereafter in 2021, are to be at these rates. For prior injury dates, if the total temporary disability payments are made two years after the date of injury, then they are to be paid out at these new amounts as well.
Generally, total temporary disability payments are calculated by 2/3rds of the Injured Worker’s Average Weekly Wage at the time of the injury.
