    Question Impact of SSDI on Workers Comp Benefits

    My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: Oklahoma
    I was approved for SSDI and received my back pay, and what I will be getting monthly which is about $650. I also have been receiving WC DOL for several months and receive around $1,200 monthly. My 1st question is; Do I have to call or notify WC that I was approved for SSDI? Second question is; If my WC ends will the total money I get be just the $650 from SSDI? Thanks for any response you can give.

    It's irrelevant, your SSDI is offset to compensate for your WC
    SSDI has nothing to do with your comp payments, they stay the same.

    Second question is; If my WC ends will the total money I get be just the $650 from SSDI?
    You would then get the max allowed, you should see an increase.
    Just to be clear, you did inform SSDI that you are receiving comp, right?

    Hi Tony,

    Yes,I did notify SSDI when I applied. I had to send them a copy of my WC payment. The WC payment did decrease $100 a month since then, to cover higher cost of medical insurance.

    nofusion..each claim/IW would be addressed on a case by case application of the rule.
    SSDI is offset by the amount of WC benefits in most states...there are a few however that permit the ER/IC to offset WC... that was the IW receives the full SSDI award without worrying over the possibility of overpayment and having to reimburse.

    There are also those IW who for one reason or another don't see any offset to the SSDI due to WC benefits...all depends on their specific numbers and contribution over the work history.

    Doubt there are any two nationwide with the same situation or offsets.
