Temporary Total Disability (TTD) is paid when an injured worker is only PARTIALLY unable to work for a TEMPORARY period because of a work-related injury.
If you’re injured on a job and also have a 2nd job, our Indiana Workers’ Compensation Act mandates that your lost wages for all employment be considered in the calculation of your TTD pay. However, only if the two jobs are “similar”, at the time of the accident. For example, if you worked in retail sales for two employers, these positions might be considered similar. If, however, you are hurt at your retail sales position and your second job is in construction, these positions are likely not similar and your TTD pay will only be based on the job where you were injured.
