If You Don’t Understand How Workers’ Compensation and Social Security Disability Benefits Interact, You May Hate Yourself Later

If you have been injured on the job, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, you also might be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits if you have an injury that will take you out of work for at least one year

Many workers’ compensation laws require you to apply for Social Security Disability benefits and then allow the carrier to reduce you money benefits by the receipt of the Social Security Disability benefits.

Additionally, if you are entitled to Medicare, and settle your workers’ compensation case, you will have to take Medicare’s interest into consideration in a Medicare set-aside account. Make sure that you are represented by a workers’ compensation attorney who also understands Social Security Disability benefits. At Cavey and Barrett, your experienced workers’ compensation and Social Security Disability attorneys can help you understand your rights to workers’ compensation benefits and Social Security Disability benefits and the interaction between both benefits.
