Question

Part or all of my disability results from a work injury and I am receiving workers' compensation. Can I file for Social Security Disability?
Answer

Yes, and you should do so as soon as you think your total disability will last 12 months. In certain cases the disability check would be reduced because you're receiving a workers' compensation check. However, you would still be receiving money above the work comp checks. When your work comp checks stop, you would then receive your full Social Security Disability check without a very substantial gap in payment.

Special care should be taken if an individual decides to enter into a lump sum settlement of their workers' compensation case so as to reduce and possibly eliminate any future offset. These matters are very complex and it is suggested that you consult with an attorney if this circumstance should arise.
