Feds Scrap Harsh New Social Security Rules

Feds scrap harsh new social security rules

New regulations would have reduced social security for workers compensation recipients.

The Social Security Administration has dropped a proposed rule change, published in April, 1998, which would ignore lifetime allocation of workers compensation settlement proceeds.

The Social Security Administration recently called the proposal “completely dead.”

The proposed rule was intended to reduce social security disability benefits when an injured worker settles or redeems his or her workers compensation case.
