DWC Withdraws Newsline Announcing 2022 Temporary Total Disability Rates

The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) announced today that the September 15, 2021 newsline that established the 2022 minimum and maximum temporary total disability (TTD) rates has been withdrawn. The decision to withdraw the September 15 newsline is based on finding that the State Average Weekly Wage (SAWW) data posted by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), data which under Labor Code Section 4453(a)(10) is used to determine annual TTD rates in California, was preliminary and incomplete. The TTD rates in the September 15 newsline should not be used or relied upon in determining indemnity benefits for the upcoming year.

DWC will issue a new newsline with the correct 2022 TTD rates when the correct data is posted and confirmed by DOL.
