Your employer's end of the workers' compensation program

In Kentucky and beyond, most employers are obligated to purchase insurance to provide benefits to workers injured on the job to help them offset medical bills, replace lost wages and cover other expenses associated with their conditions. Whether you work in a field that most people consider inherently dangerous or spend the majority of your time at work behind an office desk, if you happen to suffer injury while carrying out your daily duties, you can file a workers' compensation claim.

How workers’ compensation applies to disability

When employees are injured at work and become disabled as a result, it can be devastating because it means that they probably can no longer earn an income in the way that they used to, through no fault of their own. In most cases however, injured employees are able to receive workers' compensation that can help them financially through the difficult journey that they are faced with.

Your options when suffering a neck injury at work

It is possible to attain a neck injury in a number of ways, but even a seemingly minor injury to the neck can be quite serious, so it is important to never ignore it. Certain types of neck injuries, if left untreated, can lead to the body becoming paralyzed.

Work incentives and Supplemental Security Income

Having a disability or a long-term illness can severely affect your independence and your quality of life. Having an independent life is something that the government wants to help all citizens work towards, if it is possible in their futures. However, those who are receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) may fear that getting a part-time job will put their SSI benefits in jeopardy. This is why SSI has introduced work incentives in order to minimize a job seeker's risk of losing his or her benefits if he or she does attain part-time work.
