Lump sum payment and SSDI

the only thing that might help is if all the settlement money was to be used for treatment like in Medicare setaside agreement.

So just to be clear, you are saying that Utica-Mohawk Agreement type deal wont help? I'll either set aside all the $$ from the settlement or have SS take my checks away for a period of time, correct?

i don't know the terms of your settlement or the calculation ssdi used to determine your earnings.
social security will offset it's payments by the amount of earnings per the link i gave you.
i don't know what more information I can give.

Well, it's pretty simple, my thread/question was...... will SS put some kind of 'hammer' down on me/my SSDI check if I get a lump sum WC check? If so, is there or has there been a way to avoid or lessen the amount SS may or may not take from my SSDI check? You say there isn't from your first reply, others say there is.

Maybe you got 'burned' in your case or denied SSDI or having issues, so hence the 'nope, nothing can be done' type replies to my thread....whatever the reason for the 'generic replies', I do agree, there is no information you can give me.

For anyone else, I'm not sure if this matters, but my SSDI is around $1000 a month, WC settled for around $5000 with lawyer getting 20%..... that leaves around $4000 for me.

A 'good' answer could have been along the lines of what u stated above, with addition to 'yes, there is something called a yada yada clause that may help if put into the contract etc etc etc.....1171's reply was a flat out "no".

"disrespect him"?? No, I agreed with him that indeed there was nothing he could do to 'help' me. It's funny that everyone else after 1171's reply, including yours, was 'yes, there is something that may help'.

If anyone was "disrespected" it would be me with a generic, half arse answer to my question/s..... others, including you, had no trouble saying yes and towards the end, the so called 'no, there is nothing', has a name......Utica-Mohawk Agreement.

Just so I'm clear, I did not and do not think anyone here had a crystal ball and could tell me exactly what will happen with my case, but c'mon, he put no effort in trying to 'help'.... I would expect that from a person that joined 9 days ago with 2 posts...but not someone who has been here from the start and has to have heard something in all these years besides............................... "no".

This is not my first 'rodeo' as far as fourms go. New on this one, but have many miles behind me on various other ones. If someone of any 'status' is going to post a reply, they need to go all or nothing, IMO.

Point taken... but maybe have him add a page or two to his 'book'. Smile

I don't think there is anybody that has been here for very long that will ever give you bad info. It might not be what we want to hear or the way we would like it but it's going to be pretty good info. One of the big problems in WC is there is just too much info that is needed to give the best answer some times. And even with every piece of info on a case it still doesn't always work out they way you think it should. Trust me on the employers side they are always looking for a new angle to screw us with. Sometimes all the folks on here can do is help guide you where to try and find some answers. And we all have our good days and bad, please just don't jump on anybody too quick and I think you will find this is about the best place to go and find the help you need. I'm not a couple of hundred years old yet like some members but there are days I sure feel like it.
