I filed for state disabilities and they said I had no money

I filed for state disabilities and they said I had no money to draw from pryer quarters
because i was in a work-mans comp settlement, and the money was suppose to be paid back by the insurance company i received my settlement from. I was told that the insurance company has not yet paid back the state which was part of the arrangement of the settlement and which the state required if a settlement had been reached, which it was and I receive money but i was told by the state that the insurance company has yet to pay them. So now can they go back to other quarters from which I worked? I have not received any disabilities payments in the last 9months and I filed 4 months ago. What are my opinions? Thank you for your time

Hello,

 

JustAnswer's terms of service does not allow us to provide a referral to a specific law firm or lawyer. To find a disability lawyer in your area, contact a referral service such as the California Bar Association's Lawyer Referral service, or a commercial service such as Martindale.com. These are places where lawyers themselves go to find a lawyer when they need to consult with someone in a location other than their own.

I'm afraid that you cannot collect state disability and workers' compensation for the same injury.

If you collect workers' compensation it is because your injury was caused by work.

Disability is limited to injuries/conditions NOT caused by work. So it's actually illegal to receive both.

You may be able to receive unemployment benefits, but only if you are ready and able to return to work.

If you are disabled, you should file for social security disability benefits.
