Workers compensation is not a bar to a social security claim

Injured workers in North Carolina often have a pending workers' compensation claim or had one in the past. It is also common for such workers, even when fully unable work, to hesitate to file for Social Security disability benefits. This is due, at times, due to concern about an offset. However, delays in filing for SSD can cause workers to lose some or all of their Social Security benefits. An explanation of the offset related to WC and SSD may clear things up.
