An employee's permanent partial disability benefits (PPD) or permanent total disability benefits (PTD) rate is determined by Wisconsin statutes and your doctor's assessment of certain factors.

Retraining Benefits

If you are no longer able to do your job duties because of a permanent disability or because a doctor has assigned permanent restrictions, you may be entitled to retraining benefits. The goal of retraining benefits is to restore some or all of the injured employee's preinjury earning capacity. Retraining benefits can include going back to school. In this circumstance, you will likely meet with a vocational counselor to determine what retraining program and school are best for you. The goal of a retraining claim is to get you TTD benefits while you go to school, as well as receive compensation for educational expenses like books, miles and parking fees.

Loss of Earning Capacity

Employees who experience serious head, neck or back injuries and have permanent work restrictions, may be entitled to loss of earning capacity benefits. A vocational expert will be able to help in determining your loss of earning capacity using his or her knowledge of the labor market. Loss of earning capacity benefits are usually higher than permanent partial disability benefits.
