Key Drop Down Descriptions

 

    Disability Type

Disability Type is initially reported on the DWC-1 "First Report of Injury or Illness" and subsequently updated based on benefits reported on the annual DWC-13 "Claim Cost Report".
Disability Type is defined by the highest initial classification or type of benefits received, based on the following hierarchy:

Temporary Partial
Temporary Total
Impairment Income
Supplemental Income
Permanent Total
Death

Temporary Partial – disability that is not permanent in nature, permitting a return to work with restrictions that reduce the worker’s pre-injury earning capacity.

Temporary Total – disability that is not permanent in nature and completely prevents an immediate return to gainful employment. This category also includes Temporary Total-Catastrophic and Temporary Total-Training and Education. (See below.)

Impairment Income – benefits for workers who have reached Maximum Medical Improvement and have been issued an impairment rating. These benefits may be received even after the individual has returned to work.

Supplemental Income – benefits which may be paid after Impairment Income benefits have expired: if the worker has an impairment rating of 20% or more and a post-injury earning capacity of 80% or less than pre-injury capacity.

Permanent Total – a non-fatal injury that permanently and totally incapacitates an employee, preventing return to gainful employment.

Death – may also include cases where death ultimately resulted from a workplace injury or illness and occurred no more than five years after the injury/illness occurred or was first reported.

Settled – refers to cases with settlement dollars reported on the DWC-13.

Lost-Time, No Indemnity – refer to claims reported as lost-time, but which do not (yet) have indemnity reported.

Additional terms:
Temporary Total Catastrophic – benefits paid to a worker with a catastrophic injury at a rate of 80% of pre-injury earnings for six months, compared to a normal rate of 66 2/3 %.

Temporary Total Training and Education – benefits paid to an employee obtaining training and education to obtain suitable employment, typically for a period of no more than 26 weeks.

Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI) – the point at which further recovery from or lasting improvement to an injury or disease can no longer be expected based on reasonable medical probability.

Impairment Rating – determination of an injured worker’s loss of physical function as a percentage of total bodily function or mobility.
