When Social Security And Workers' Compensation Meet

Workers CompensationIf you have been injured in an accident at work and can no longer return to your job or take on alternative work, it is possible to collect both Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits and Workers' Compensation benefits. However, the Social Security Administration has certain rules about how much money you can collect under these programs.

The administration looks at how much money you have made over your working life, and how much money you collect from Workers' Compensation and SSD benefits combined. In certain situations, the administration may reduce or offset your SSD benefits based upon this complicated mathematical formula. At times your benefits may be reduced inappropriately or mistakenly.

If you have been injured at work and can no longer return to your job, you should contact the experienced disability attorneys at Terry Katz & Associates, PC, as soon as possible at 888-488-7459 so that we can help maximize the benefits to which you are entitled.
