Under Minnesota Workmans Compensation there are three types of wage benefits that are available to an employee who suffers a work-related injury: (1) Temporary Total Disability; (2) Temporary Partial Disability; and (3) Permanent Total Disability.
Temporary Total Disability benefits are available for MN workers who are totally disabled from work for a temporary amount of time. This amount of TTD payments is calculated based on the employee's average weekly gross wages from the 26 weeks prior to the work injury. The payment amount is 2/3 of this average weekly wage, and it is capped at $750 per week for injuries that occurred October 1, 2000 to September 30, 2008, and $850 per week for injuries that occur on or after October 1, 2008.

There is a 104 week limitation on the amount of time an employee is eligible to receive TTD benefits for each injury. In addition, TTD benefits will cease 90 days after maximum medical improvement or the completion of an approved retraining course, whichever is later.
