Workers’ Compensation affects other benefits
Did you know that public disability payments, such as Workers’ Compensation, could affect your Social Security benefits? Civil service disability benefits, state temporary benefits, and government retirement benefits, based on a disability, can all lower the amount of your Social Security benefits.
The Social Security Administration determines that you are only entitled to 80 percent of your average income, before you became disabled. Even so, the government still allows you to collect Workers’ Compensation and Social Security benefits simultaneously when you become disabled.
To determine how Workers’ Compensation or other public disability benefits could affect your Social Security, speak to an attorney at The Law Firm of David E. Friedes. You must report all changes in benefits immediately, including lump sum and monthly payments. We can show you how to maximize your benefits.
