My dad was injured at work about 8 months ago that required

Customer Question

My dad was injured at work about 8 months ago that required surgery on his shoulder and has been out of work ever since on workman's compensation with his employer however they requested he come back to work on light duty but when he did the injured shoulder gave him to much pain and he informed them he could not work. He is 78 years of age and was wandering if he would qualify for disability if he can no longer work do to his shoulder. Would he qualify for disability for these reasons?
JA: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Is there anything else important you think the Retirement Accountant should know?

Hi, My name's Lane. I can help you.

...

Is your Dad already receiving Social Security Retirement Benefits?

Expert:  Lane replied 6 months ago.

If he is over 66, then Social Securuity benefits won't be reduced by other benefits such as workers comp.

...

However, one cannot get social security retirement and social security disability at the same time.

...

No two Social Security Benefits cna be "stacked," as Social Security calls it.

...

However, if he has not filed fo his Social Security REITREMEN t, that WOULD be an additional benefitm as long as he has worked under Social Security for over 10 years (40 different quarters)

Expert:  Lane replied 6 months ago.

You can read more about how Social Security and Workers Comp work together here: https://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10018.pdf

...

Butn again at age 65 he would have been automatically switched to retirement benefits ... however if he has'nt FILE for Social Security he should.

...

I hope this has helped. … Please let me know if you have any questions at all.

...

If this HAS helped, and you DON’T have other questions … I'd appreciate a positive rating (using the stars or faces on your screen, and then clicking “submit")

Otherwise I’m working for no crediting at all here

Thank you!
