- Temporary Partial Benefits in Arizona
According to SCF Arizona an individual may be eligible to receive compensation benefits if they have missed work for eight or more days in a row resulting from a work related injury.
Temporary partial benefits are typically paid to an employee that returns to work, and due to their disabilities, are not able to earn the same amount they were earning prior to their disability. It is common for an employee, or employer to submit pay stubs to an adjuster so the temporary benefit of 60 percent of the difference between earnings before the injury and after the injury can be determined.
At Phillips Law Group, our experienced Phoenix workers compensation attorneys believe that if you or a family member has been injured on the job, the victim may be entitled to temporary partial benefits. Our attorneys are determined to fight for your rights in the court of law and investigate your claim in seek of the maximum compensation benefits.

Temporary Partial Disability Benefits Time Limits
Over the past years, the limitations of an individual being able to collect temporary partial disability benefits have changed. Prior to January 1st 1991, an injured employee was able to collect 341 weeks of temporary benefits, whereas injuries between January 1st 1991 and February 8th 1994 benefits increased to 350 weeks total. As of February 8th 1994 the number of weeks of temporary benefits collected has been reduced to 626 weeks.
In addition, there is a three day waiting period an individual must wait for the payments of his or her disability benefits. In the case that the disability extends longer than 14 days, this three day waiting period is waived. Furthermore, if an employee injured on the job returns to temporary work within five days of sustaining the injury, the employee must pay the worker from the first day of injury, thus the three day waiting period is waived.
How is Temporary Partial Benefits Calculated?
Temporary partial benefits are calculated based on two thirds or 66 percent of the difference between the average amount paid to the worker prior to the injury and the total amount that individual earns in the temporary working job.
An example of this is if a worker is making $500.00 each week prior to the injury. Then the worker was being paid during their time off at an amount of $525.00 each week, then returns to temporary work and makes $200.00 each week including taxes. Thus, the wage difference is $325.00, which would mean the worker will receive $216.67 each week with their temporary partial benefits.

I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!

Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
