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.
