Additionally, Social Security Disability is a type of compensation available to people who are incapable of working, as long as they meet certain requirements set forth by the federal government. The system is run by the Social Security Administration, which is a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. While workers’ compensation covers only those who suffer a work-related injury, Social Security Disability is payable due to work-related injuries as well as other medical reasons unrelated to work. We can examine your case and provide clear direction regarding the benefits you are owed.
