    Default Subsequent Injury Fund/SSDI Benefits

    My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: CA - I'm trying to find out if SIBTF is an additional benefit that does not offset SSDI benefits? Not worried about calculations at this time. In reading some of your responses the SIBTF is paid at the TTD rate you've received and added with the SSDI benefit. So if I understood correctly there is no offset? Please clarify? Thank you

    There may be an offset to your SIBTF benefits, they can claim credit for the amount you receive from SSDI.
    Here's a good blog on this topic.

    Disability Pension:
    SIF is entitled to will claim credit similar to SSDI Social Security Disability as a percentage of SSDI that is related to the pre-existing PD.
    The formula is (Overall disability % (combined pre-existed PD and Subsequent injury PD) Less Industrial % of disability = Offset % Multiplies Social Security Disability Monthly Amount = Offset Amount. (Combined % – WC PD = % x SSDI benefits = offset). The SSDI credit will end once the worker reaches retirement age and the SSDI benefit converts to retirement benefits. Calculating the Social Security credit can be rather complex. To properly assess the credit four things need to be known:
    The date of entitlement to SSDI benefits and the beginning date of these benefits;
    Dates and amount of changes in monthly SSDI benefits after deductions;
    If SSDI benefits have been terminated, the date reason for the termination must be known; and
    The date of entitlement of Retirement. This information should be obtained from the Social Security Administration.

    I think I asked the right question? I noticed in your response "reach retirement age". I'm medically retired and I receive SSD Retirement. I'm not sure what retirement age is because I'm already retired. Being retired and receving SSD Retirement, is the SIBTF in addition no offset to my SSD Retirement?
    Thank you,

    'm not sure what retirement age is because I'm already retired.
    Depending on your age but it's normally 66 years old, medically retired isn't considered reaching full retirement age - the offset ends when you reach full retirement age.
    The offset applies to your SIBTF benefit not SSDI.

    Currently, the full benefit age is 66 years and 2 months for people born in 1955, and it will gradually rise to 67 for those born in 1960 or later.
