I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to help you better understand your options.
Thanks for your question. I wouldn't say you "screwed up" but I would say that you need to tell social security about your worker's compensation benefits.
The combination of your social security disability and your worker's compensation pay cannot exceed 80% of what you drew pre-retirement, so it is possible that you may have been overpaid. If your workers comp is only medical reimbursement and you don't get a check - don't worry this shouldn't impact you.
I meant to say the combination of your early social security retirement and worker's compensation can't exceed 80% of your pre-disability income. However, once you reach full retirement age (66) none of this will matter
So, I suggest that you call social security and let them know about the worker's compensation. It's always better to be upfront with them, rather than they find out through other means
