Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
You might need to report these awards to worker compensation if you do receive such benefits qs they usually claim back if any other disability benefits are awarded .
However - no need to report to the social security administration as long as these are not wages and not self-employment income.
Please be aware that both these awards are NOT taxable.
See following publication
Amounts you receive as workers' compensation for an occupational sickness or injury are fully exempt from tax if they are paid under a workers' compensation act or a statute in the nature of a workers' compensation act.
Do not include in your income compensatory damages for personal physical injury or physical sickness (whether received in a lump sum or installments).
Correspondingly - you may not deduct attorney fees because they are not related to taxable income.
