Yes, if you qualify under both programs you can receive Social Security disability or retirement compensation and VA benefits at the same time without a reduction in benefits …for either.
Yes. Social Security is a federal program administered by the states, but the rules are the same regardless of your state of residence. Persons who qualify for SS benefits may… live where they choose and not lose their eligibility.
A felon may receive SSDI benefits if he or she is not incarcerated for more than 30 days and has no outstanding warrants. Social Security will not pay cash benefits to anyon…e living in a prison, jail, nursing home or other tax-supported facility; however, if the person remains eligible for disability under SSA guidelines, payments resume after release. Payees are not entitled to back benefits for the time spent incarcerated.
If you are receiving unemployment benefits and then start receiving Social Security Disability Benefits can you still collect unemployment?
The reasoning behind the Disability Benefits program, is to grant a monthly check to those people who are "no longer able" to perform the duties required to hold their job, or… work due to some medical issue. But Unemployment Benefits should be paid when a person finds themselves without a job, but still "perfectly able" to work if they could only find a job. The process seems to work so the person receiving the unemployment benefits must be actively seeking work. So, paying both benefits to the same person wouldn't seem reasonable, they are at odds, one paying because you can't "do the" work another paying because you can't "find" work. Another Answer: Yes, you can get both at the same time. This is a very confusing issue. But as explained above, the two are different types of income, and neither one is "wages", and that is what makes it so that one does not affect the other by definition. It seems counter-intuitive, but the bottom line is that neither Unemployment Compensation nor Social Security Disability Income affects the other. You can get both at the same time. Unemployment compensation is not earnings or wages, you are not receiving it for being an employee or having employment. SSDI income is also not work. You do have to report the income on taxes at the end of the year, but it is not wages, so you do not have to report it as work to the Unemployment office. One way to think of it is, if it is listed on a W2, then it is work. If it is taxable income but not work, it will be on the W9. The US Government definition of earned wages for disability purposes is: "For purposes of determining whether Social Security benefits are payable, a person's earnings for a taxable year are the sum of pay for services as an employee plus all net earnings from self-employment (minus any net loss from self-employment) for that year." For unemployment benefits, even though you received SSDI, that is not earned wages, and you were available to work. You just were unable to find a job that you could do with your particular disability. But you were available and you were actively seeking employment that you would be able to do with the disability. The disability rules about allowable amounts of wages that one can earn in a trial period without affecting benefits does not come into play. Unemployment benefits are not wages.

Yes, so long as you earn less than $1,010 a month, after deducting "work expenses" related to your disability. There is no limit for the first nine months.
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.
Alimony is awarded via a legal judgement. Disability is still considered income. You should Contact your attorney and apply for a garnishment of his wages or get a job.
No you don't have to, but if your spouse works it is to your advantage to file jointly. Also, these government pay backs only go to tax payers so I would wait until the countr…y is back on its feet
The broad answer to the question is Yes. However, whether both categories of benefits are payable in a particular situation will depend upon whether the applicant is found to …be "totally disabled" under SSDI guidelines, and how the private disability policy defines disability. A very comprehensive explanation of the Social Security disability process appears on the Social Security website maintained by the Social Security Administration. Much, if not all of the initial application process can be done online, or you can go to a local Social Security Office. It often takes a while to get a determination, so patience is a virtue. The most critical element of the process involves medical documentation of your inability to work. A private disability insurance policy will define that which constitutes disability, and that definition must be met for benefits to be triggered. There are various definitions and the precise wording will dictate your entitlement to benefits (such as, you may be able to collect if you are disabled from doing that line of work that you did at the time of the disabling event, or you may be able to collect only if you are unable to do any sort of work). The long and the short of it is that you may very well be able to collectboth, but the specific answer is fact-driven.
You will use your medicare to pay for the medical costs of pregnancy. The question is, " can you physically and emotionally care for the baby ?"
In most cases, people will not be able to receive social security disability if they move overseas. However, each case is different and there is no way to know until the S…ocial Security Administration makes a decision.
Only if the person works and has paid into Social Security.
