Stocks and Bonds

On-the-job injuries are a common occurrence, knowing your rights regarding workers’ compensation and your current benefits are essential. The attorneys of Erwin, McCane & Daly have the resources and answers you are looking for.

If you, or someone you know, are receiving state benefits and are expecting to receive a workers’ compensation settlement, Medicaid will view the settlement as income for the month it is received. Due to the settlement, Medicaid may not issue benefits for the month when the settlement is received. The settlement award needs to be reported to Medicaid and then you are able to apply for Medicaid beginning the month after the settlement is received. This is very important to understand as budgets are planned according to monthly income.
