Q. What if I am Receiving Workers’ Compensation Benefits?
A. Social Security (SS) law mandates that any other benefits you receive must be taken into account. Consequently, your SS benefits may be offset or reduced based on the other benefits you are entitled to. It is essential to adhere to Federal law and report all payments you receive.
However, with meticulous planning and appropriate legal phrasing in your Workers’ Compensation settlement, it is possible to minimize or eliminate the offset. For this reason, it is crucial to consult your lawyer to ensure the proper wording is used in your settlement to achieve the best possible outcome.
