1 Maximum functional impairment only benefit excluding TTD can be found in K.S.A. 44-510f(a)(4).
2 Citations for Permanent Partial General Disability (PPD) include:

  • Functional impairment K.S.A. 44-510e(a)(2)(C), effective May 15, 2011
  • Work disability K.S.A. 44-510e(a)(2)(E), effective May 15, 2011

Functional impairment and work disability cannot be awarded together.

Effective May 15, 2011, PPD is limited to functional impairment unless:

  • The percentage of functional impairment is greater than 7½ percent of the body as a whole
  • OR the overall functional impairment is equal to or greater than 10 percent of the body as a whole where there is preexisting functional impairment
  • AND there is a post-injury wage loss [defined in K.S.A. 44-510e(a)(2)(E)] equal to or greater than 10 percent directly attributable to the work injury only.

3 From July 1, 1993 to May 14, 2011, a wage loss equal to or less than ten percent meant functional impairment only.
4 From July 1, 1987, to June 30, 1993, there was no work disability if the post-injury wage was comparable to the pre-injury wage;
functional impairment introduced as an alternative.
5 In 1979, there arose a new statutory definition of Permanent Partial Disability (PPD), the origin of what eventually became the
General PPD or “work disability” in Kansas: “the extent of permanent partial general disability shall be the extent, expressed
as a percentage, to which the ability of the workman to engage in work of the same type and character that he was performing
at the time of his injury, has been reduced.” [K.S.A. 1979 Supp. 44-510e(a)]
