You got injured at work and now you’re collecting worker’s compensation payments. Can you apply for social security disability benefits at the same time? Below we review how worker’s compensation payments can impact your social security disability case.

 

Legally, you can apply for social security disability benefits while collecting worker’s compensation benefits. In Massachusetts, your social security benefits may be reduced depending on how much you are collecting in worker’s compensation benefits. However, it’s still worthwhile to apply for both programs. As someone who is disabled and can no longer work, you qualify for both programs.

 

That’s how worker’s compensation can impact your social security disability case.
