Can I file a Social Security benefits claim before my Workers’ Compensation ends?

Q: I got hurt on the job. I am drawing workers' compensation benefits. Can I file a claim for Social Security disability benefits now or should I wait until the workers' compensation ends?

A: You do not have to wait until the workers’ compensation ends, and you should not wait that long.

An individual can file a claim for Social Security disability benefits while receiving workers’ compensation benefits. Offset calculations are made to equalize any overpayment from either program.
