The Social Security Administration may reduce or eliminate potential Social Security Disability benefits if the same person has settled a work injury claim. This is a complex area, and anyone with questions should contact an attorney who is well-experienced in Iowa workers’ compensation law and the impact of settlements on potential Social Security Disability benefits.

At times, an insurance company will offer to settle a workers’ compensation claim, and will not include the necessary language to prevent your Social Security Disability benefits from being reduced. They have little or no obligation to offer to include that language. The legal impact of any such settlement should only be made upon consultation with H. Edwin Detlie, or another attorney who is experienced in Iowa workers’ compensation law and the possible impact of a worker’s compensation settlement on Social Security Disability benefits.
