- Permanent Partial Disability (PPD): If you have a permanent impairment due to a work injury or occupational disease, you are entitled to a permanent partial disability award.

An injured worker can file an application for permanent partial disability 26 weeks after the last payment of temporary total or wage loss compensation.
- Scheduled Loss Awards: If you have an amputation, ankyloses, loss of use of a body part, or loss of vision or hearing, you are entitled to a scheduled loss award.
- Permanent Total Disability (PTD): If you have a permanent disability due to a work injury or occupational disease that prevents you from working in any capacity, you may be entitled to permanent total disability benefits for the remainder of your life.
