Disability Retirement Benefits

If you are permanently unable to return to work after a workplace injury, you may want to know if you are entitled to disability retirement benefits.

Question:

Can I receive disability retirement benefits if I’m permanently unable to return to work?

Answer:

One issue we sometimes run into is what kind of benefits an employee is entitled to if they’ve been injured at work and are unable to return. In addition to the benefits that you’re entitled to under California Workers’ Compensation law, including permanent disability, you also may be entitled to benefits outside of Worker’s Compensation.

If you work for an Disability Retirement Benefitsemployer that has disability, long-term disability or short-term disability or disability retirement, it’s important for you to understand the role that your injury has on your entitlement to benefits down the road. If you’ve been injured at work and you’re no longer able to work, it’s important for you to understand that you may be entitled to access your pension or retirement benefits early. If you have a question as to what impact not being able to work has on your retirement benefits, including disability retirement, feel free to give us a call. We’d be happy to walk you through that.
