Permanent Partial Impairment (PPI)
A PPI is a benefit that results from a permanent physical loss of a body part or function because of a compensable work-related injury. A PPI award is separate from any other benefits you may be entitled to, assuming you meet the criteria used to determine PPI eligibility. You may be eligible for a PPI assessment once you reach maximum medical improvement (MMI). PPI benefits are awarded only if your full-body impairment meets or exceeds the statutory minimum impairment.
