You must not settle that case without the assistance of a lawyer, or a lawyer in your region that is familiar with workers compensation settlements and how they affect Social Security benefits.  That settlement could completely eliminate your monthly Social Security benefit if improperly handled, or, it could affect it very little. 

Review this information provided by the Social Security Administration, and then, call an expert.

Social Security Disability
If you're suffering from a disability that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to benefits under Social Security disability insurance (SSD or SSDI). Social Security disability attorneys can work with you to file your application for benefits. Because the Social Security Administration routinely denies the majority of initial claims, your SSD lawyers can also prepare for your hearing before an administrative law judge, attend all hearings, advocate on your behalf and file an appeal if your application has been denied. Hire an SSDI law firm as soon as you need to apply for SSDI. The faster your application is approved, the more quickly you will begin to receive benefits.
