The benefits were granted to Rodriguez to make up for income lost by being unable to work a second job.
She was arrested following a lengthy investigation by the Workers' Compensation Fraud Control Unit.
Rodriguez was charged with one count of fraudulent claim or receipt of benefits.
She was released on a promise to appear in Waterbury Superior Court on September 13.
