Are Michigan Workers' Compensation Benefits Affected By Other Benefits I Receive?

Yes. The workers’ compensation statute provides for the coordination or reduction of workers' compensation benefits to the extent the worker receives other benefits paid for by the employer. Therefore, if you receive, or are entitled to receive, sick and accident benefits, pension benefits, or other similar benefits, your workers' compensation rate will be reduced by the after-tax value of other benefits.

Social security benefits are paid 50 percent by the employer and 50 percent by the worker.

Accordingly there is a 50 percent reduction for old age retirement social security benefits.  

Social security disability benefits can be reduced if an individual receives workers' compensation, so there is no reduction in Michigan workers' compensation for social security disability benefits.
