What is the difference between workers' compensation and SSDI?

Most Connecticut residents are aware that the state's workers' compensation program provides certain payments to persons who are injured on the job. They may also know that the federal Social Security Act provides benefits to persons who are disabled. Most people do not, however, understand how the two systems work together or which one covers work-related injuries. This post will provide an overview of the eligibility requirements for workers' compensation benefits under state law and Social Security Disability Insurance benefits under federal law.

Understanding carpal tunnel syndrome

Many people in Connecticut depend upon their hands to earn a living. Brick layers, carpenters, factory workers, and administrative assistants are only a few examples of such occupations.

The science that is behind CT scans is far too complex to be summarized in this blog. Nevertheless, the widespread use of this medical imaging technique makes it a critical part of the workers' compensation claim process, and this post will provide an overview of its use and functioning.
