Types of Workers' Compensation Benefits

We work with the five types of Nevada workers' compensation benefits:


  • Permanent partial disability (PPD) - You get these benefits when your injury led to permanent impairment. PPD benefits depend on the severity of your disability, your age, and your wage.
  • Permanent total disability (PTD) - If you cannot return to work because of a severe disability, you'll receive these benefits. PTD is equal to two-thirds of your average monthly wage and is paid out for life.
  • Temporary total disability (TTD) - These benefits are paid out while you're unable to work. TTD in Nevada equals two-thirds of your average weekly wage and can only get paid out when you miss five days of work in a 20-day period.
  • Temporary partial disability (TPD) - These benefits are given when you can do light-duty work. TPD benefits are equal to two-thirds of your average weekly wage minus what you make in the modified position you're in.
  • Medical benefits:  This includes, but is not limited to,  being compensated for doctor's visits, surgery, physical therapy.
