Impairment Income Benefits (IIB) - at max medical improvement & rating assigned

Impairment Benefits (IB)

When your doctor states you are at Maximum Medical Improvement, your condition is not expected to improve significantly, and the doctor will have you evaluated for possible permanent work restrictions and an impairment rating.

  • If you receive a permanent impairment rating greater than 0%, you will receive money based on that rating.
  • For an estimate of your benefits, please click here.
Permanent Total Disability (PTD) - can never work again

If after reaching Maximum Medical Improvement your injuries are so severe, as defined by law, that you are left permanently unable to work, you may receive permanent total disability benefits.

For assistance in estimating PT benefits, please contact the Bureau of Monitoring and Audit at 850-413-1608.
