My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: ny
I've been offered a lump sum payment and I get SSDI. I will be 65 in 2 1/2 years. I asked my lawyer several time to prorate the lump sum in the Section 32. I sent my lawyer a letter asking about this (including hartman language). He said that I don't need this clause because SSA will automatically do this. I been reading the posts about this proration clause and it seems like I do need to put this clause in. This is causing me a lot of anxiety as I want to take the settlement. I called the workers comp. advocate and was told that this between me and my lawyer.
