Re: Workers Comp Offset
This isn't about collecting both at the "same time" It's about collecting both for the "same period" even if you get paid ten years from now.
I was originally told I would NEVER successfully win a SS claim to begin with......6 years later I most certainly did because I didn't stop. I understand the offset idea if and when you get those payments simultaneously, but there is about a two and half year gap when workers comp stopped.
You obviously won both the comp and SS case years later - If comp paid backpay for the time it stopped and you collected back pay from SS for that same period, they are entitled to the offset.
These guys are pretty sharp, they rarely make mistakes.
