Can I Receive Florida Workers Compensation Benefits Along With Social Security Disability Benefits Or Unemployment Benefits?

A: You may be able to receive both Florida workers’ compensation benefits and Social Security Disability benefits, though one of your two payments may go down so that your combined benefits do not exceed 80 percent of your pre-injury wage. However, you cannot receive both Florida workers’ compensation and unemployment benefits. Why? You must be physically able to work, available to work, and seeking work when receiving unemployment benefits. Do you still have questions about your South Florida workers’ compensation claim?
