If injured on 2nd job and can still work the 1st job will you be able to collect workman comp pay?
In this state you can not generally collect workman's comp pay if you are injured on a second job and still are able to work on your first job if that is your main job. Your second job would be responsible for all medical bills for the injury on your second job. That would be it. To get workers comp, you must swear that you are unable to work. If you are working, you would be telling a lie under oath. Martha Stewart went to prison for less.

Can you collect worker's compensation benefits in new york state if you have a state pension?
Workers' compensation benefits are not connected to a state pension. A state pension says you have retired from a job. Period. Workers' compensation benefits say you are injured on a job and can not work. Normally, the workers' compensation benefits would be from a different job than from the one from which you retired. For example. If you were a cop and retired after 20 years, you would receive a retirement from your job as a cop. Then if you took a job as a fireman and were burned, you could receive workers' comp for that job. You would receive workers' comp for a different job. Normally, if you received a few bullets and a few injuries while you were a cop, and then retired, that is not called workman's comp but a disability. You would be retired disabled. Your retirement would be increased for that reason. That is different from workman's comp. So you can be retired disabled and receive workman's comp from a different job.

Workers compensation benefits are governed by the law of the state in which payments are due. As such, the duration of payments vary.
