Can I apply for Social Security disability while I am receiving workers’ compensation benefits?

Yes. The Social Security Administration does not view the receipt of workers’ compensation benefits as substantial gainful activity. Individuals receiving workers’ compensation benefits may still apply for Social Security disability benefits. However, if approved, their Social Security disability benefits will be offset by the periodic payments of workers’ compensation.
