Social Security Benefits vs. Workman's Comp Benefits
While the federal government provides Social Security Disability benefits to workers, each state has its own workers' compensation laws.
Social Security Disability
To receive Social Security Disability benefits, you must be unable to perform any kind of gainful employment within your geographic region because of your disability. You also must be unable to work for at least one year or to be able to prove that your disability is going to last at least one year. While your disability can arise from any source, you must have a work history to obtain compensation.
To receive workers' compensation, you can be partially disabled and still get benefits. If you were injured in a workplace accident, you do not have to be out of work nor do you have to be totally disabled to collect workers' compensation benefits. Benefits start from the very first day of the injury.
If you have become disabled or you were injured on the job, you may be entitled to benefits. We can help you file for both Social Security Disability and workers' compensation. Contact our New York City Social Security Disability attorney.
