Can i apply for social security disability while receiving short term disability check from work?
Sure. But Social Security eligibility requires that your disability be "permanent and total."

Thanks for the feedback!
Unfortunately, this is the same thing and you cannot.
Normally when you want to apply for Social Security Disability you have to either call your local social security office and talk with a representative, go online and send cop…y of the application and possibly even have to go down to the office in order to apply.
Go to your local social security office and apply for supplemental social security or social security disability insurance (you must have paid into this program by working)
You don't have to pay taxes on it, and you don't even have to file. The government does not expect you to file, and people don't. See Publication 907 at http://www.irs.gov/pub…lications/p907/index.html. The year 2008 is different though. The IRS is giving a $300 ($600 if married filing jointly) tax rebate to people on disability, but you have to file to get the rebate. See http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/k1040a3.pdf.
Can a person have two Social Security numbers and receive a disability check with one number and work with the second Social Security number?
Only if the person wants to take a long vacation at Club Fed. Each person is allowed only one Social Security number. Any person who has two numbers and is collecting disabi…lity under one while working under the other is committing felony fraud and other federal crimes. The SSA Office of Inspector General (OIG) specializes in prosecuting various types of Title II (Social Security) fraud. The act of faking or exaggerating a disability, exclusive of the other crimes involved in this scenario, is punishable by a maximum of five years in prison and/or a $250,000 fine under 42 U.S.C. § 408(a)(1)-(8).
Technically and legally, yes, but there are risks involved. While the Social Security Administration doesn't prohibit people on (SSDI) disability from receiving unemployment… checks, state unemployment regulations usually require all unemployment recipients to be willing and able to accept full-time work. This creates a conflict, because you're generally not eligible for Social Security disability benefits if you're capable of full-time work. When you file for unemployment compensation, all states require you to provide your Social Security number (authorized under Internal Revenue Code of 1954, 26 U.S.C. 85, Sections 6011(a), 6050(b), 6109(a), P.L. 98-369, Section 1137(a)(1)). They will share information about your claim with other government agencies to determine how unemployment affects other benefits you may receive, such as Medicaid and food stamps. If you are in the process of filing for Social Security disability, the conflict between simultaneously claiming to be incapable of "Substantial Gainful Activity" (SGA), which generally translates to full-time work, and contractually agreeing that you're willing to accept full-time work (under state unemployment regulations) in exchange for unemployment compensation, may result in being denied disability status (most initial claims and first appeals are denied, anyway). If you persist with the disability claim and proceed to a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ), it will take approximately 18 months to two years from the date you originally filed the claim until your hearing date. By then, your unemployment compensation will (probably) have been exhausted and you will either have been forced to accept employment (thus ending your disability claim for all practical purposes) or will continue to be unemployed or be under-employed. This may be a factor in the judge's decision to award or deny disability, but it will not necessarily prevent you from receiving disability benefits. The disability determination process is usually long, and should not be viewed as a way of generating quick cash. You may want to consult with a disability attorney before taking action.
Generally speaking, no, you cannot receive unemployment benefits after you apply for social security disability. This is because you have to be looking for work and just can't… find any to draw unemployment. An SSDI claim means that you are unable to do any work. If you are unable to do any work, you can't really be looking for work. This is a somewhat gray area, though. You CAN actually work a little if you are on SSDI. In fact, it is encouraged because they want you to get back to work and off of SSDI. But the amount you can work and still draw SSDI is rather limited ($900/month I think). Anything over the threshhold amount is deducted from your SSDI payments. But actually drawing unemployment while stating that you are unable to work at any job seems to be a contradiction. My attorney told me that it may or may not get you into trouble and it's best not to tempt fate. Especially where the murky federal laws and state/local laws intertwine. The best thing to do is contact your SSDI application attorney to find out for sure. If you don't have an SSDI attorney and you are applying "pro se", good luck to you. Almost all claims filed by the applicant (pro se) rather than an attorney fail. "Pro se" means you are representing yourself without legal council and is frowned upon by attorneys in general and by the judiciary in particular. The saying goes that a lawyer (or lay person) who represents himself has a fool for a client. Best advice is to lawyer up.
Once you reach retirement age, your Social Security Disability benefits convert to regular retirement benefits, payable at the same rate. You cannot collect an additional amou…nt due to disability. It is possible that you could qualify for the SSI supplemental security income, which is based on disability and income, in addition to your month Social Security benefit, but this is a different program and is not administered by the SSA. The amount of SSI paid is adjusted monthly based on what the person was able to earn in that month.
Angina is not an impairment that's presumed to be disabling. Therefore, you would need to show that it's not treatable and that its effects make it impossible for you to perfo…rm any work that you would qualify for based on your age, education and experience.
Well first you need to apply for disability benefits with the Social Security Administration. You can apply at your local SSA office or by calling the 1-800 number.
Your not supposed to do that but how are they gonna find out? I mean Short Term Disability is about 66 2/3 percent of your salary and the burden of proof is on them. The only …way an insurance company can find out is if someone reports you and/or something you do becomes public record otherwise, there isn't much of a way for the insurance company to find out. As far as I am concerned you have to do whatever you can these days to survive. Its a dog eat dog world.
I believe there are ways to make additional income when on disability. You will have to find out the maximum amount your allowed to make while on disability. You are permitted… to make up to a certain amount in addition to the amount disability pays you.
Assuming that you are referring to short term disability insurance, it is intended to replace income when the insured is unable to work due to an injury or medical condition t…hat is not excluded by the terms of the policy. The reference to "short-term" distinguishes the coverage from long-term disability, which, assuming conditions are met, can have payments that last for years. Short-term disability policies ordinarily provide benefits from anywhere between 60 days to a year or so. Many employers offer short-term disability coverage as a benefit of employment. The amount of the benefit is usually based upon the employee's earnings at the time of disability. It also usually declines over the term that benefits are paid; for example, it may pay 100% of lost income for the first month or so, and then slowly decline toward the end of the term. Short term disability plans can also be privately purchased from insurers. Like many other forms of insurance, these kinds of policies may be "medically underwritten", meaning that whether or not an applicant qualifies will depend upon health history. Likewise, the insurer will be interested in earnings history, because the purpose of the coverage is to replace income, not to be a money-making proposition for the insured. It is very important to ensure that any insurance that is purchased is issued from a licensed insurer (sometimes called an "authorized" insurer), and that the insurer is authorized to issue insurance in your state. This information can be obtained through the office of the state insurance regulator in the capitol. Be sure to find out from the agent/insurer the name of the entity that is financially responsible for the payment of claims, as it is that entity that must be licensed. A product name that sounds familiar is not sufficient and is not a guaranty.
You already have two children receiving a check from your Social Security disability can you add another on?
If you have another child, he or she would also be eligible for benefits; however, you are already receiving your family maximum benefit for the two children, so adding a thir…d would simply make each child's benefit smaller. Each would receive one-third of the family benefit, rather than one-half.
You can elect to discontinue Social Security disability benefits at any time; however, you may have to pay a visit to your local field office to prove you are the person to wh…om the check or deposit is issued.
You can't receive Social Security retirement benefits and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits at the same time. SSDI provides monthly benefits to people who a…re under full retirement age (age 65 or older) and who meet other requirements. Once you reach full retirement age, which is based on the year you were born, the Social Security Administration will automatically transfer your disability benefits to retirement benefits. Your monthly benefit amount will not change as a result of this transfer.
You are supposed to be too disabled to work
