Video Transcription: If your authorized treating physician takes you off of the work or gives you work restrictions you will be entitled to indemnity benefits. There are three tapes indemnity benefits: temporary total disability, temporary partial disability, and permanent disability. If your doctor takes you off of work completely, you will get temporal total disability, which is the 66% of the average of your wage. If you get temporary partial disability that means that you have work restrictions and your employer cannot accommodate you, and again that’s a percentage of the average of your wage. Finally, there is permanent disability, and that’s when a doctor takes you off of work permanently. That's when you get paid for the rest of your life by weekly checks depending on the average of your wage.
