Can Injured Workers Get Cost of Living Increase AND Social Security Disability ?

from the Virginia Comp Commission.  Where the combined workers compensation rate AND the Social Security Disability benefit DOES NOT EXCEED 80% of the injured workers’ gross pre-injury wage, the disabled wage earner may be able to get COLA.  Put another way, if the Virginia Workers Compensation Commission finds that the combined compensation rate and Social Security Disability benefit exceeds 80% of the pre-injury wage, the claimant is not eligible for Cost of Living.  If you or someone you know or care for has been injured on the job or is seeking Social Security Disability benefits, and there are questions about what laws apply, e-mail or call us at ABRAMS LANDAU, Ltd.
