2. The Defense pays the VRTD at the TTD rate of $490 at the time of injury. When payment is actually made it is more than 2 years after the date of injury. So the Hofmeister case seems to apply with the two year bump up. The TTD rate would bump up to $ 602.

3. AA says the VRTD rate is 2/3 of AWW which which comes up to $ 620.
