Can I receive Social Security Disability insurance benefits and workers’ compensation at the same time?
Yes, up to a certain point. A person’s Social Security Disability Insurance and workers’ compensation benefits cannot exceed 80% of his or her pre-disability wages. If your combined benefits are more than 80% of what you previously earned, your Social Security Disability Insurance benefits will be reduced until your monthly benefit amount is below this threshold.
An attorney experienced with both Social Security Disability Insurance and Workers’ Compensation benefits can create a Workers’ Compensation settlement which maximizes the amount of income you receive on a monthly basis. At Riddle & Brantley, LLP, our attorneys work with both areas of the law, and can expertly combine your settlement and Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.
