A: You need to contact an attorney who handles workers compensation. However, getting workers compensation doesn't mean no social security--it just means there is an offset, or reduced benefit. I f that is your situation, you need to contact whoever the company is that handled the claim. They should be the ones to send you the letter with a date of termination, etc.

A: Hi, I was having trouble with my computer so it took me a while to answer. Sorry about that. IWs in Texas typically are limited to wc benefits to 401 weeks from the date of injury, not the first date of disability. So a person could actually lose entitlement to income benefits before disability begins if it is after 401 weeks. I agree with Munsing about the offset. Good luck.
