Question:

Could I also be entitled to disability retirement benefits if I’m unable to return to work after a work-related injury?

Answer:

Disability Retirement BenefitsJust the other day, an older person that had been injured on the job in North Carolina called my office and wanted to know if they were entitled to their retirement benefits, in addition to continuing to receive their workers’ compensation benefits from where they had been injured on the job. In fact, the injuries on the job were the very reason that they went ahead and retired. Under North Carolina law, you are entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits and your retirement benefits, but you have to be careful that your employer will not attempt to use the situation to make you settle your workmen’s comp case for too little money or use it to try to cut your workers’ compensation benefits out. If you’re a state employee, there’s also special considerations that have to be developed and negotiated.
