You can receive partial disability benefits if you are able to return to work, but your injury causes you to earn less than you were making originally. Benefits for partial disability are “75% of the difference between your spendable base wage before you were injured and your earning capacity after your injury.” Generally, you can receive these benefits for up to 312 weeks. Once you reach maximum medical improvement (MMI), your benefits may be reduced to “70% of the difference in your earnings.”
