If you are receiving Workers' Compensation (WC) payments, your monthly SSDI (Title II) check may be reduced by the full or partial amount of the other benefit. Once you no longer receive that benefit, your SSDI check should be restored to its original amount.
Note that if you receive SSDI benefits as a Disabled Adult Child (DAC) of a beneficiary, then your SSDI benefits will not be reduced by any WC payments you might have. (The same is true if you receive benefits based on the earnings record of your spouse; that is, your SSDI benefits will not be reduced by any WC payments you might have.)

Since Workers' Compensation and Public Disability benefits can be very complex, we recommend that you consult with your SSA Claims Representative if you are receiving -- or expect to receive -- either.
