In Georgia, a workers' compensation carrier is allowed to reduce the amount an injured worker receives in income benefits one year after that person is released to light duty work by the authorized treating physician. The current maximum workers' compensation TTD rate is $575 in Georgia. However, if the work comp carrier correctly files the form WC-104, they can reduce the injured worker's benefits to the TPD rate of $383 after one year. If have received a form WC-104 pertaining to your workers' compensation claim, contact work injury attorney Brian H. Sumrall at 404.924.4595 or visit
