I have been disabled by social security due to my back and shoulder injury sustained while on the job. I will never be able to return to any gainful employment so I am currently recieving SSDI in the state of TX. I have just recieved my 16% impairment rating and according to TX state laws I qualify for SIBS. This still has to be approved by the hearing judge! I guess my question is this! According to what I read in the TX workerscomp Laws, In order to recieve SIBS I have to show proof that I attempted to get a job! I am on strong pain killers and soma Everyday . If I am unable to look for work do they just have to continue paying my SIBS or not?
