Hello all I'm PB88 and I have a question if any of you would be so kind in helping me.
I was injured at work several times until I couldn't work any longer and I was able to get SSDI.
I also won my second injury case recently in MO and they have not decided to appeal and it has been over 20 days as is required in my state. I won an amount of money and an amount per week for the rest of my life. I have not received any money yet but should within the next 30 days. This all sounds good but I would prefer to be able to work and not a crippled.
Since I was awarded the second injury case how will this affect my SSDI? I am receiving $638 a month for SSDI and my medicare injurance.
Will I be able to receive the $638 from SSDI and approx. $700 a week from the second injury fund?
I would be very appreciative if someone could help me figure this out and explain it to me.
Thaniks in advance!
Ps: I was awarded SSDI in Jan. 2007 and second injury fund about a month ago, if that matters. Also my husband helped me fight for both cases and he doesn't know the answers to my questions.
