The Social Security Administration may reduce or eliminate potential Social Security Disability benefits if the same person has settled a work injury claim. This is a complex area, and anyone with questions should contact an attorney who is well-experienced in Iowa workers’ compensation law and the impact of settlements on potential Social Security Disability benefits.
If you settle a workers’ compensation case without taking the offset into account, it can potentially cost tens of thousands of dollars. Contact H. Edwin Detlie for more information on the ways that workers’ compensation settlements my reduce the award of Social Security, and the ways to reduce of eliminate that offset, by being represented through the settlement process. However, the legal impact of any such settlement should only be made upon consultation with an attorney experienced in Iowa workers’ compensation law and the possible impact of a worker’s compensation settlement.
