Will a Personal Injury Settlement Affect Social Security

Share This Post

Personal injuries can be life-changing. Your health and ability to function properly in day-to-day life can be greatly impacted by a personal injury. Social security disability benefits are one of the few relief options available to those who are not able to work due to their injury. If you rely on social security benefits to live, risking the loss of those benefits can be difficult.

Unfortunately, there is no clear-cut answer if a personal injury settlement will affect your current disability benefits. One of the main factors is what program you are receiving your disability benefits from Social Security Insurance (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).

In most cases, those who are receiving their benefits through Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) will not be adversely affected by a personal injury case. However, the settlement that ensues as a result of the personal injury case may be lessened because you are already receiving benefits as a result of your injury. Members of Social Security Insurance may see adverse effects that could cause a detrimental effect to the social security that you are currently receiving. The best course of action to determine what the resulting outcome could be would be to contact a lawyer to evaluate your case.
