My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: CA.
Hi. I posted here last year under my real name so i cancelled.
The Workers Comp insurance company has offered my husband $20K settlement to buy future medical. He doesn't use the carrier anymore and doesn't use Medi-Cal. He's a disabled Vet and uses the VA. All income he receives is SSI and VA disability. VA money is deducted from SSI so his total is same as straight SSI. My question: If he accepts the $20K, will SSI discontinue payment? My husband is terminally ill due to chemical exposure while serving in the Army late 1960s. He has a claim pending and is trying for 100% Service Connected Disability. If/when he reaches 100% he will drop SSI and receive a more respectable income of $2600 a month. Can he accept the $20K settlement without problems? Any advice appreciated. Thank you.
