It is possible to be eligible for benefits under both the Workers Compensation Act and the Social Security Disability Act, although there is a limit on the benefits one can receive from both programs at the same time. If you are awarded social security disability benefits, the Social Security Administration will take an offset for the amount of workers compensation benefits you are receiving. You may still be eligible to receive some social security disability benefits depending upon how high your earnings were during the last several years you worked prior to the beginning of your disability.
