Can I get Social Security disability funds with other benefits?

After suffering an injury on the job, people may experience an inability to work for a lengthy period of time while they are receiving treatment or undergoing rehabilitation related to the injury. If the injured worker meets all of the eligibility requirements, he or she may be eligible for Social Security disability for injury, as well as other public and private disability-related benefits.
