Below, we’ll cover each benefit that is available under Ohio workers’ comp law:

Types of Workers' Compensation Benefits

Injured workers receive temporary total disability benefits in Ohio, or TTD, if they are unable to work on a temporary basis due to their work injury. TTD is paid bi-weekly and is designed to replace lost wages.

If you experience pain, loss of range of motion, decreased strength, or other ongoing symptoms, you are entitled to permanent partial disability in Ohio. The amount of a PPD award varies depending on the extent and severity of your injury.

Permanent total disability benefits in Ohio, or PTD benefits, are for injured workers who sustain a serious injury that causes a severe and permanent impairment which prevents them from returning to work in any capacity. An injured worker's age, education, and work history is also considered when determining whether they qualify for PTD.

If you are under restrictions due to your injury and return to work at a different job and have a loss of earnings, or if you are unable to find work within your restrictions, you may be entitled to wage loss compensation in Ohio.

Vocational rehabilitation in Ohio is a voluntary program that is uniquely tailored to each individual worker to assist them in returning to the workforce. Living maintenance benefits are payable to injured workers who actively participate in a vocational rehabilitation program.

A scheduled loss award in Ohio is for injured workers who sustain an amputation, ankylosis, loss of use of a body part, or loss of vision or hearing due to a workplace injury. The amount of the award is based on a statutory schedule which considers the specific body part injured and the date of injury.

The injured worker and employer can agree to a full and final settlement of a workers’ comp claim. If the parties agree to settle a claim, the injured worker receives a one-time, lump sum payment and in exchange, agrees to close the claim and forgo their rights to past and future compensation and medical benefits.
