Do I need to pay back California State Disability?

Montebello, CA |

I was in a car accident and I was injured. I had shoulder surgery and went on disability. I received state disability from the State of California. When I get the settlement from the responsible driver, do I need to pay the state back?

State disability is insurance you paid for (by working for your employer). No, your settlement is for more than missed work, it covers medical bills (out of pocket) and pain & suffering.
