What would you like to do?
Yes you can. However if your collecting disability benefits from a LTD then they will most likely kick you off once you start receiving your SSDI benefits. However, if you trying to get on SSI, which is income based, you wont be able to collect both.

No. The Social Security Administration only pays disability benefits if they determine you have a qualifying condition, are completely disabled, and are expected to remain dis…abled for at least one year. If you are capable of working or engaging in "substantial gainful activity" (SGA) regardless of whether you receive income for your efforts, you will not be approved for SSDI benefits. In addition, you -- or, under certain circumstances, a parent or spouse -- have to have made sufficient quarterly contributions to the Social Security fund before you become eligible to Social Security benefits. Some government programs, such as those for disabled military veterans, may pay a monthly stipend if you are partially disabled or have a non-disabling condition that has been linked to your military service (for example, Vietnam Veterans who have diabetes and were potentially exposed to Agent Orange automatically qualify for partial disability).
Can you collect both unemployment benefits and Social Security Disability benefits at the same time in Illinois?
Because the Social Security Administration has a very severe test on whether you qualify for their program, if you are unable to work, it's unlikely you would be eligible for …Illinois' unemployment benefit because you are required to actively search for full time work, among other things. However, this applies to the Social Security Disability program, not the normal Social security benefits, described in the answer below. You can collect unemployment and Social Security in Illinois, BUT because of what is called the offset law, you will only receive part of your rightful unemployment payment. For example, $145 a week is deducted from my unemployment payment because I receive Social Security. The state legislature in Springfield has to repeal the offset law so senior workers can get our full unemployment payments. Illinois AARP can put you in touch with people who are trying to get the law repealed in the 2010 session. Illinois, Louisiana, Utah and Puerto Rico are the only places in the US that still have an offset law.
Yes you can and most often are entitled to both. Each makes it's own separate decisions though. One doesn't automatically make you eligible for the other. You must apply f…or each one separately. Most people consult an attorney for military disability through service groups usually that can be found with offices at major VA hospitals.
No, to collect social security disability you must not be able to work any job in the national economy.
Can you collect unemployment benefits and Social Security Disability benefits at the same time in Connecticut?
Yes. Modification: You might collect both IF you are physically, mentally able and available according to "Basic Eligibility Requirements" on page 4 of the Related Link …below. This would mean the Social Security Disability must not be too severe (and SSD investigators thoroughly check out a claimant)
Yes, if you own a private Disability insurance policy, the guidelines and benefits are accounted for separately from Social Security benefits. A person can be eligible to rece…ive both benefits. A private Disability policy can have two types of benefits: Base and Social Insurance benefit. Base benefits are payable regardless of Social Security benefits. Social Insurance benefits will offset dollar-for-dollar with any Social Security benefits you are eligible for. You can revert to your original Disability insurance policy, or policy summary to determine whether you have base or Social insurance benefits. You can also contact the insurance company your policy was written through to confirm this information.
Can I continue to collect my compensation disability after starting to collect Social Security benefits at 65?
Collecting Social Security would not interfere with your compensation disability
To collect unemployment you have to be actively seeking work and able to do the work. Receiving Social Security Disability implies you may not be able to either, so probably n…ot.
Worker's Comp (disability insurance) is different from Social Security and you can collect both if you qualify for both.
No your social security benefits payments will be issued to you monthly. Unless you happen to qualify for some back payments then you could receive a lump sum to bring you up …to the year that you started receiving your SSB amounts.
If you are receiving Social Security Disability and reach full retirement age, the full amount of your benefits will be transferred from SSDI to Social Security Retirement. If… you are receiving Supplemental Security Income and are over the age of 62, you may be able to receive Social Security Retirement benefits in addition to your SSI if you have worked and paid into Social Security long enough to be eligible.
Can you collect both Social Security Disability benefits and unemployment benefits in New Jersey at the same time?
Apparently, from the information in the Related Link below, New Jersey has disability payments due for reasons of being unable to work, therefore one could not pass eligibilit…y to collect unemployment or, in the alternative, if collecting unemployment, would not be eligible for disability.

Social Security benefits are issued to those who have reached "retirement eligibility," which can occur based either on age or on a disabling condition. In other words, it's o…ne or the other, whichever occurs first. So the answer to your question is "no." For the record, Social Security benefits also are issued in other situations, e.g. to the dependent children of persons who die and have earned Social Security qualification, but these other situations have no bearing on the answer to your question.
