Question: I am working two jobs. Due to my injury, I can no longer work at the job where I was injured. I am receiving temporary total disability checks. Can I still work at my other job?

Yes. The Social Security Act provides for Social Security Disability if an injured worker is unable to do any type of work for at least a period of a year. If you are in this situation, you should consult an attorney as to how workers' compensation and Social Security effect each other.
There are also private disability plans that your employer may have provided you or that you have obtained on your own. Most of these plans are effected by the receipt of workers' compensation benefits, so you should consult an attorney concerning these offsets.
