Private Disability Insurance . Private disability insurance includes sickness and accident payments, long-term disability, and short-term disability. This insurance is usually part of a benefits package at work.. If you are currently receiving sickness and accident payments, you are still eligib…le for Pennsylvania work comp payments.. Keep in mind:. If your employer pays the premium on your private disability insurance, the amount of your work comp payment will be reduced by the amount of your private disability payment. . If you pay the premium for your private disability insurance, your work comp payment will not be reduced. . Unemployment Compensation . A person who applies for unemployment compensation must:. be unemployed through no fault of their own (ex. Didn't quit their job) . be able to work . be available to work . register at a Job Service Office . have worked a minimum number of weeks during the year . have earned a minimum amount in wages during the year . Whether or not a person continues to receive unemployment compensation is determined each week. If you are already receiving PA workers comp payments, there is really never any reason to receive unemployment compensation. Your work comp payment will be reduced based on your gross unemployment compensation payment.. Example: If you are receiving $400 per week in workers compensation payments and you apply for $400 per week in unemployment, your workers compensation will drop to $0. In addition, the $400 in unemployment compensation will be taxable while the workers compensation payment was not taxable.. Unemployment compensation may be an option if the amount of your unemployment benefits after taxes exceeds the amount of your work comp payment. This could possibly happen if you were injured after a short time on a low-paying job but had previously worked for a longer period at a higher paying job.. Also, if your Pennsylvania work comp payments are being disputed (such that you are not currently receiving work comp payments), it makes sense to collect unemployment for something to live on during the dispute. Once you begin to receive work comp, any past due work comp payments will be reduced by the amount of unemployment payments you received during that time period (MORE)

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 that is not excluded by the terms of the policy. The reference to "short-term" distinguishes the coverage from long-term di…sability, 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. (MORE)

It is possible, however it depends on the particular Short-Term Disability Insurance policy you have. Your disability benefits booklet should be available from the employer.

If your Short-Term Disability Insurance policy has an "Own-occupation" definition of disability, and your second job is not related with your main occupation, you could continue receiving short term DI benefits as long as you are still disabled and can't perform your duties of your main job.

Fortunately, many disability policies have incentives to encourage people to work as much as they are safely able, so it's possible that you will still earn more between both sources of income than you would from just one or the other. It should be noted that if the second job is related and/or the Short Term Disability company can prove that you are able to work at your primary job based on your duties you are performing at your second job, your benefits may stop.
