Workers' Compensation and Social Security Disability Benefits

In some cases, an applicant's SSD benefits will be reduced if they are receiving workers' compensation benefits. The Social Security Administration does not allow a person to receive combined workers' compensation and SSD benefits that exceed 80 percent of the individual's average current earnings prior to the onset date of disability. For high wage earners, the offset is often small, and under current law, settlement of a workers' compensation claim can often completely remove the offset and result in a significant increase in SSD benefits.  For more information, contact us
