1999 I went out on a 100% Worker's Compensation accident that happened in 1987. I was told to file for SSD by the judge and be ready for a reverse offset due to the money I was making during that period. My SSD was denied stating they don't have the same guidelines as comp. I was making approximately $150.00 and told I would receive about $2800.00 from SSD. I appealed and the decision was upheld. I only get $300.00 per week from the original injury.
If you are of retirement age you can file for those benefits. Talk to a lawyer.
