Can I collect Social Security disability, long-term disability, and workers’ compensation at the same time?Return to FAQs
The answer is, “probably,” but there will be offsets, depending upon how much you make and what the actual type of disability policy is, so for instance, if you are eligible for federal worker’s compensation, those benefits are primary, or in other words are paid first. The Social Security benefits are supplementary, so they would have what’s called an offset or a reduction, and they pay a little bit more. And then depending upon your policy for disability insurance, you might be eligible to receive that, but then there might be offsets on the other. So you should certainly contact an attorney to get the advice on your particular situation.
