If I was injured at work and am receiving workers compensation, should I wait until the workers’ compensation case has concluded?

No. You should go ahead and apply for your Social Security Disability Benefits. If you are represented by an attorney in your workers’ compensation case, make sure that he or she is aware that you are making an application for SSD. This will make it less likely that there will be a delay between receiving the two forms of benefit. Your benefit from Social Security may be reduced depending on your benefits from your workers’ compensation case and its structure.
