Sandra was severely injured while at her job and was told she should apply for Social Security disability benefits and Worker’s Compensation. As she read information about the application process, she became confused when she learned that receiving Worker’s Compensation could affect her Social Security Disability benefits. Sandra had seen our posts on LinkedIn and decided to call Cervoni Disability Law, to ask for help with her Social Security Disability Insurance claim.
…what we told Sandra:
We told Sandra that if she received Social Security disability benefits and Worker’s Compensation or other public disability benefits, the total amount of these benefits could not exceed 80 percent of her average current earnings before she became disabled.
We told her that Social Security would add her SSDI benefits to her Worker’s Compensation benefits and if they totaled more than 80 percent of her average current earnings before she became disabled, the excess would be deducted from her benefit.We helped Sandra calculate her potential benefits and determined that the total was only 60 percent of her average current earnings and consequently her SSDI benefits would not be reduced. We then helped Sandra successfully apply for and obtain Social Security disability benefits.
