If a worker is permanently partially disabled, the most they can receive in permanent partial disability benefits (PPD) for injuries occurring after July 1, 2015 is limited by statute (“capped”) as follows:

1.  For any whole person rating less than or equal to 25%, the statutory cap for PPD is $81.435.67.  PPD and  temporary disability benefits (TTD or TPD) added together usually cannot exceed the $81,435.67 limitation.  (Section 8-42-107.5, C.R.S.).

2. For any whole person rating greater than 25%, the statutory cap on PPD is $162,869.28. Once again, PPD and temporary disability benefits  (TTD or TPD) added together usually cannot exceed $162,869.28 (Section 8-42-107.5, C.R.S.).

There is no “cap” on medical or permanent total disability benefits.
