Claiming disability benefits for work injury.

When people refer to "disability benefits" they are most commonly referring to Social Security disability benefits (SSDI). SSDI benefits are paid by the federal government when you are unable to work. People also use the term to refer to workers' compensation income benefits. These benefits are broken down into two categories: Temporary Total Disability (TTD) benefits and Temporary Partial Disability (TPD) benefits. These benefits are paid by an employer's workers' compensation carrier. You are able to receive workers' comp benefits while you are receiving SSDI benefits but the federal government will take an offset against any work comp benefits you receive. If you have any questions about claiming these benefits, call Atlanta disability benefits lawyer Brian H. Sumrall at (404) 857-3835 or visit
