When do Checks Start?


THE FACTS

  • Generally speaking, your first “weekly wage” check (also called a TTD – temporary total disability payment) should arrive in your mailbox within 3 weeks after your work injury.
  • You should save all envelopes containing your checks because they show the postmark of the date mailed, and you should photocopy your checks before depositing them.
  • If the insurance company is late, or if they miss a check, you may be entitled to a substantial penalty payment.

THE DETAILS

Georgia law provides for the following when it comes to your first payment of weekly wage benefits:

  • if the insurance company is located inside the state of Georgia, your first weekly wage payment must be put into the mail no later than 21 days after the date of your accident (the actual day of the accident does not count)
  • if the insurance company is located outside the state of Georgia, your first weekly wage payment must be put into the mail no later than 18 days after the date of your accident

When are On-going Weekly Wage Checks Due?

  • if the insurance company is located inside the state of Georgia, your on-going weekly wage payments must be postmarked by the end of the week of missed work (i.e. no later than Saturday of the week of missed work)
  • if the insurance company is located outside the state of Georgia, your on-going weekly wage payments must be postmarked on the Thursday of the week of missed work.
