What would you like to do?
No. Edited to change answer to YES! If I understand you correctly, you are receiving LTD from an Insurance Policy you had through your Employer or bought yourself. Right? And you were just approved for Social Security and received your backpay - from the time you filed to the time you were awarded. Right? And now your LTD Company is asking for most of that money and have now decreased your monthly benefit by the amount of your Social Security check. Right? This is all VERY LEGAL AND NORMAL! Your LTD company pays you a certain amount - mine pays me 60% of my pre-tax income. Let's just say that is $1,000 (it isn't) And they have been paying you that $1,000 for 3 years. Now, Social Security is going to pay you $700 a month. And they gave you backpay for the past 2 years. Then your LTD company is going to start paying you only $300 a month - $1,000 minus $700 SS Check. You will NEVER receive Social Security Disability of $700 PLUS your $1,000 LTD check. I would assume you would see why this wouldn't happen, right? And your LTD is also entitled to their $700 a month for those 2 years that Social Security paid you for backpay. So you will owe them $16,800 ($700 x 24 months) So the original answer of NO is wrong. If this is the scenerio you are presenting anyway.

Thanks for the feedback!
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.
can I receive money for my children if their father is on disablity? we are separated
The disability has to be 'approved' by a panel of people, one or several of which could be medical doctors. Just because you or your employer have a 'plan' that includes disab…ility payments doesn't mean that payments are automatically given for an injury. There is most likely a time limit imposed for such payments.
If you are told your back pay for disability social security has been released how long does it take to receive it?
You should receive a letter from the Social Security Administration telling you when to expect the money. Unfortunately, they are sometimes slow in sending the letters o…ut.
If you are sufficienty fit to care for and transport a child, maybe. I f you have a mental disability , probably not. Honestly consider your motivations for wanting to adopt. …Your ONLY reason should be for the benefit of the child.
Should the non custodial parent receive social security disability benefits while the child lives with him for 3 months of the year?
Yes, but dealing with SS in doing the transfer may be difficult, so the other parent may need to pay it directly.
Can you receive unemployment benefits and Social Security Disability benefits in Michigan at the same time?
You have to be ready, willing, and able to work full time immediately for unemployment. SSD may allow some forms of work that does not affect your disability. If you met BOTH …criteria, then you might be able to.
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.
Yes, and in any other investment, since SSDI is simply accelerated Social Security Benefits you would be entitled to due to your work history and the fact you paid taxes durin…g your working career. The SS administration simply estimates what a disabled person would get at full retirement age had they not been disabled and pays the benefit to the disabled person when they qualify as disabled. So, the money is up to the recipient to do with as they please and has nothing to do with checking accounts or savings account or any other assets. SSI benefits, confused with SSDI, is "needs based" and IS affected by a low-income persons assets.
Among the requirements for eligibility, you must be ready, willing, and ABLE to start work that you are seeking full time and if you are on Disability benefits, it's implied y…ou are unable to work. Neither SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance income) nor Unemployment benefits are considered "wages". SSDI allows trial work periods where a certain amount of wages is allowed from actual jobs without affecting the disability benefit amount. But even that still doesn't apply to Unemployment benefits, because they are not wages, either. Since unemployment pays as long as you have not earned over your benefit amount for the reporting period, and since SSDI is not "earnings", then both benefits can be received at the same time without one affecting the other. Unemployment still pays as long as you are able and available to work. People with disabilities can be able to work according to the definition for unemployment benefits. It may take longer to find such a job, but the unemployment rule that you have to be able to work and looking for work to receive benefits will usually not be affected by your disability status and payments, as long as there is some type of job that you can do and you are actively looking for it. Obviously, a disabled person in a coma is not able to work, but many people with disabilities can do some form of work that accommodates their particular disability. See the related question below for more information and links to the SSDI and government sites for definitions, etc. Additional information from Social Security Administration: Social Security Disability Insurance pays benefits to you and certain members of your family if you are "insured," meaning that you worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes. Supplemental Security Income pays benefits based on financial need. See also the link below to the Social Security Administration site for more.
Only if the retirement disability is not from SSA (e.g., workers' comp or a public disability pension). One can receive Social Security disability and disability payments fr…om other source(s) at the same time. See the Related Link below.
What impact does moving to another state have on receiving back money from social security disablity?
None; Social Security is a Federal program.
Can you receive cash benefits from your retirement if you are not retirement age and have less than 15 years with company you are receiving social security disability payments?
You should get this information from the trustee of the retirement plan. But for income tax purpose you should be able to BUT the taxable amount of the distributions will be… subject to income taxes at your marginal tax rate. It is also possible that from 50% to 85% of your SSB can also become taxable income at your marginal tax rate on your 1040 federal income tax return. When you are under the age of 59 1/2 the taxable amount of the distribution will also be subject to the 10% early distribution penalty plus income tax at your marginal tax rate.
disability ,then social security
What if you are unemployed and are receiving unemployment benefits can you still get social security disability payments?
You don't say where you are - so I'll have to answer as per UK law... I would say no. If you're simply unemployed, but capable of working, you can claim unemployment benefit. …If you're on a disability allowance - that means you're incapable of work (and are thus not entitled to unemployment benefit). To claim unemployment benefit, you must be actively seeking work. If you're incapable of working, you're not entitled to unemployment benefit ! You cannot meet the criteria of BOTH benefits !
Yes, it is very common for disability insurance plans to include a clause for social security disability, meaning the insurance company will pay a portion of the monthly benef…it, expecting that you would apply for social security benefits to pay for the "Supplemental Social Security benefits". In the event you get declined by Social Security, then the insurance company would cover the additional supplemental benefits. Employer group plans as well as individual disability insurance plans can include that clause.
Social Security Disability Benefits are available from the American Government. In Canada, they are called Canadian Disability Pension Plan Benefits.
