Q: Can I file for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits if I am receiving worker’s compensation or sick leave benefits?

 
Atty. Kashoua Yang

A: Yes. You should file for SSD benefits while you are receiving sick leave (short or long-term disability) or worker’s compensation benefits, if you expect to be unable to work for at least 12 months. You do not have to wait until these benefits end to file for SSD. It is best to file a Social Security Disability claim as soon as possible. Otherwise, there may be a gap between the time your sick leave or worker’s compensation benefits end and the Social Security Disability benefits begin. However, there is usually an offset that reduces sick leave or worker’s compensation benefits when you receive SSD.
