Workers’ compensation is exclusively for job-related injuries, but if the injury prevents the worker from working (at a level that is considered to be substantial gainful activity) for 12 months or longer, the injured employee may also file a claim for Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits (SSDIB) and/or Supplemental Security Income Benefits (SSI). It is a complex matter, but as the expert workers’ comp and Social Security Disability attorneys at Schiffman Puig explain, an individual may be eligible for both workers’ comp benefits (TTD, TPD, PTD or PPD) and SSDIB and/or SSI benefits, subject to the workers’ compensation offset provisions and the SSI income limitations in the Social Security Act.
