Worker’s Compensation vs. Social Security Disability Benefits

  • Worker’s Compensation can result in an offset of your Social Security Benefits
  • The combination of your Monthly Worker’s Compensation benefits and your Monthly Social Security Disability Benefits cannot exceed 80% of your prior income
  • Worker’s Compensation is a State Law, and Social Security is a Federal Law
  • If you are in the process of settling your Worker’s Compensation, along with a pending Social Security Disability appeal, you should notify your Worker’s Compensation Attorney of the appeal
