Just finished 104 weeks on Workers Comp TEMPORARY disability. Now, receiving Workers Comp PERMANENT disability and SS Disability. But, can I ALSO receive EDD disability ??
This question was posted twice, so I will post my answer again here. If you qualifiy under the rules of EDD, and have money in your account, yes. But you aren't supposed to double up benefits (and if you do, EDD will be looking for reimbursement when they find out). So if your PD rate, for example is $230 per week, but your EDD rate is $490, you would only get $260, or $490 minus the $230 you are getting from Work Comp. Still, if it adds money to what you are getting it would be worth it. You should consult a workers compensation attorney, who can go over all the details in your case and best advise you of your options. Best of luck to you.
