Several issues to consider...
Your workers compensation sis NOT taxable and not reported to the IRS.Social security disability benefits might be partly taxable depending on your other income.
When workers compensation is awarded - in some situations recipients are required to apply for social security disability.
When disability benefits are started - workers compensation is reduced by the amount of social security disability benefits.
Sometimes it takes long time for disability application to process and approved - and personal are already received workers compensation during that period. So when a lump sum is awarded - some of workers compensation previously received will be paid back.
