Can I file for Social Security Disability benefits while receiving workers’ compensation benefits?

Yes. An injured worker receiving weekly benefits from an insurance company can still apply for Social Security Disability benefits. If the injured worker is approved for Social Security Disability, they may not be eligible for their entire Social Security Disability monthly benefit because the workers’ compensation benefits might offset the Social Security benefit, but they can certainly apply and even be approved.
