Workers’ Compensation Offset

On Behalf of | Apr 24, 2015 | Social Security Disability

Disability benefits are subject to reduction on account of workers’ compensation benefits paid to an injured person. There is a formula used to do this. What’s important for you to know is that if you have received, or are receiving workers’ compensation benefits, please notify your attorney to avoid any possibility of an overpayment issue. This also applies upon the settlement of your workers’ compensation case since offsets can continue subsequent to receipt of lump sum payments. The amount received in a settlement can often be calculated in a way that significantly reduces and, in some circumstances, eliminates a workers’ compensation offset.
