The Coordination of Workers� Compensation and Social Security Disability


Very often, a claimant who has received a permanent workers� compensation disability award is also eligible for Social Security Disability. There is a cap on how much a claimant may receive from the combination of SSD and workers� compensation so if a workers� compensation settlement is designed properly to coordinate those benefits, the claimant can get everything he is entitled to, and the employer ensures that SSD pays the maximum they are responsible for while workers� compensation covers the rest. This can represent a significant cost savings to the employer or insurance carrier.

Please look over the following Fact Sheet, Case Studies and Tax Comments. Employers who ignore SSDI are missing a significant opportunity to save money on workers' compensation settlements.
