    SSI and Workers comp SLU check.

    What is the name of your state? New York
    Hello,

    My mother is 62 and she get disability SSI plus Workers comp CCP. Now, her workers comp case has been settled and she is about to get a SLU check for around 20.000. Even though this is not taxable money, will she loose her SSI or will she have to give up the SLU check? Is there any way to keep the money? Can she spend it very quick on health related things such as tooth implants or a car?

    Thanks you!

    She definitely needs to notify SSA.

    How Workers' Compensation And Other Disability Payments May Affect Your Social Security Benefit
    Disability payments from private sources, such as private pension or insurance benefits, do not affect your Social Security disability benefits.

    However, workers’ compensation and other public disability benefits may reduce your Social Security benefits. Workers’ compensation benefits are paid to a worker because of a job-related injury or illness. They may be paid by federal or state workers’ compensation agencies, employers or by insurance companies on behalf of employers.

    Other public disability payments that may affect your Social Security benefit are those paid by a federal, state or local government and are for disabling medical conditions that are not job-related. Examples are civil service disability benefits, military disability benefits, state temporary disability benefits and state or local government retirement benefits that are based on disability.

    If you receive workers’ compensation or other public disability benefits and Social Security disability benefits, the total amount of these benefits cannot exceed 80 percent of your average current earnings before you became disabled.

    If you get a lump-sum disability payment
    If you get a lump-sum workers’ compensation or other disability payment in addition to or instead of a monthly benefit, the amount of the Social Security benefits you and your family receive may be affected.
