Can I receive Social Security benefits and workers' compensation benefits at the same time?

You can receive social security benefits and workers comp benefits at the same time. There may be an offset that will be taken either by social security, or the workers comp carrier. The important thing to remember is to always declare that you're receiving both at the same time, to social security and to workers comp, in order to avoid and allegations of fraud or misrepresentation.
