    Could someone please tell me if TTD benefits is 66 2/3% of your gross wages or you net wages?

    Gross. I am about 95% certain in Pa it will be the pre-injury gross wages.

      In most states, it's the average of the last 13 weeks' prior to the date of injury. And, believe me, I've completed many of these income requests.
      I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

        different states, different time periods

        In CA it is the previous years average. Additionally if you had a contract, or Union and were guaranteed future wage increases, this factors into consideration.

          In NC it is the 52 weeks before the injury, less any period of more than 7 consecutive days when you did not work. But I think most states are the previous quarter, or 13 weeks, like PattyMD said.

          IF you go to the web site for your state's comp agency, and look for info on "average weekly wage" it should tell you how it is calculated there.

            IN some states, like NC, future raises that occured post-injury can be taken into account. But that is an exception to the general rule, at least in NC. Not many cases will fall into that exception.

              Yeah, I hated those states.
