Can I Apply For Social Security While Receiving Workers Comp In Pennsylvania?

Yes. However, if you receive social security retirement benefits after the date of the work injury, then the insurer/employer gets a 50% credit.

If you get on social security disability, your work comp checks do not go down. But the SSD check will be lower due to the receipt of the work comp.

Talk to your lawyer before applying for benefits so that you can understand the impact of the benefits on each other.
