Ok. As many of you know I was in a car accident back in August. Hit and run driver ran into me. Ugh. So this month my insurance paid the last of my bills and sent me a settlement for pain and suffering. The last thing on my mind was asking for ain and suffering. I guess when you have lived all but 12 years of your life in pain you just don't think about being compensated.
Anywho. I have tried to find out how that affects my disability and Medicare. Of course I have talked to Medicare as has my car insurance so am pretty sure that's taken care of. My car insurance reimbursed them for anything that was related to my accident that they paid for. But do I need to report the settlement to social security disability? And if so do I have to go in person to report it or can I send them the documents etc.
Or does anyone know a website where I can find that info?
Usually I am good at figuring this stuff out but the last several weeks have really messed up that fibro fog.
