Nonduplication of Benefits – State Plan Employer
- No benefits are payable for any period during which benefits are paid or are payable under any unemployment compensation or similar law, or under any disability or cash sickness benefit or similar law of this State or of any other State or Federal government.
However, if disability benefits are paid or payable to the worker under the disability benefit law of another State, or under the Federal maritime law, he or she may still be eligible for New Jersey benefits. In this circumstance, the weekly benefit rate would be reduced by the amount paid concurrently under the other State or maritime law.
- No benefits are payable for any period during which workers' compensation benefits are paid or payable, other than for permanent partial or permanent total disability previously incurred.
- Temporary disability benefits are reduced if an employee is receiving a pension to which the most recent employer contributed. Benefits are not payable if the employee is receiving Social Security Disability Benefits. However, please note that Social Security Retirement Benefits do not reduce State Plan temporary disability benefits.
