TTD Post stip and award absent new and further (California)

Applicant had surgery under future medical care award. Injury date is within the 5 years. Is TTD available, absent the filing of petition for new and further?

I would say TTD is still due. However, the WCAB has no jurisdiction to Award it without a timely Petition to reopen. So, if you are applicant, you better file. If you are defendant and you choose to pay, be sure you are clear in your benefit letter that a timely petition to reopen must be filed to resolve any dispute over, and determine if, any additional benefits are due, including PD.
