Workers’ compensation benefits are designed to provide injured workers with a means of support for the necessities of life. However, many people are not aware that workers’ compensation does not cover the return to work. The return to work may be difficult for some people. For others, it may be too difficult or impossible to find a job that can pay them enough to cover their needs. In the end, many people are forced to turn to government programs such as Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for help.
