Workers’ Compensation and Social Security

Often times when someone is injured while working it can end up being a catastrophic event which leads to that person not only losing their job at that given time, but also unable to work in the future. So you may be wondering what happens next?

In certain circumstances when someone is severely injured at work and cannot work any longer, that individual can qualify for social security disability benefits in addition to temporary total disability compensation through their workers compensation carrier. Now, just because you may be getting money from multiple sources, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you are entitled to those funds. Often times, individuals who are injured on the job and are receiving benefits from multiple sources may not be properly reporting their benefits to all parties involved , and if it is handled incorrectly, an injured worker can end up owing money to the Social Security Administration.
