Our video topic for today is can I receive short-term disability and workers’ compensation income benefits at the same time? Well, we covered this in another video when dealing with unemployment benefits. Workers’ compensation will get credit for any income you receive. So, if you’re getting short-term disability, if you’re getting unemployment benefits, long-term disability, any of those benefits, workers’ compensation will get a credit for that and will not have to pay you the full value of what they would normally have to pay you. Does that mean you should not obtain short-term disability benefits? Not necessarily. You need to do what’s best for you and your family. You should reach out to a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney and speak with them specifically about your facts so you can determine what is best for you and your family and move forward accordingly. We hope that you found this information helpful and we hope that you’ll come check out our other videos. If you have any sp, specific question, please give us a call. Thank you.
