Los Angeles Social Security Disability Insurance Lawyers
In cases involving serious, disabling on-the-job injuries, under the guidelines for workers’ compensation, employees can elect to receive a one-time lump-sum payment.
Total benefits payments allow injured workers to pay off certain financial obligations, so they and their families don’t have to worry about the mortgage, certain loans or medical expenses.
In cases where an injury is serious and involves temporary disability, you may be eligible to receive temporary total disability benefits until your doctor approves of your return to work. Temporary total benefits, however, are paid for only 24 months. If you have not been released to return to work by that time, you will have to apply for permanent partial benefits.

Total Benefits Payments And Disability Claims
If your work-related injuries are catastrophic, leaving you permanently disabled, you can elect to receive a one-time, lump-sum payment. Some people elect a total benefit payment because it allows them to pay off certain financial commitments, including their mortgage, credit card debt or expenses related to their medical treatment.
Additionally, depending on how much a person receives, a portion of a total benefit payment can be used to create a special needs trust. By creating a special needs trust, you may be able to qualify for Medicaid without having to spend down all of your assets. Depending on other factors, money set aside in a special needs trust is typically exempt from taxation.
