What state funded benefits can be affected by my settlement?

Social Security Disability, MediCal, MediCare, Affordable Care Act (ACA)/Obama Care exchanges, SNAP (food stamps) and Cash Aide are just some of the more common benefits that could potentially be affected by your workers’ compensation settlement.  You will want to be sure to discuss any state or federal benefits you may be receiving with your attorney prior to settling your workers’ compensation case.  You may be able to protect some of these benefits by setting up a “Special Needs Trust Account”, which your attorney can help you with.
