What would you like to do?
If you receive disability from your job and recently after 3 years received social security disability can your long term disability take your back money and decrease your monthly benefit?
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!
Can you receive Social Security benefits when you retire if you already receive veteran disability benefits?
Yes, if you have the right number of quarters in and are at least 65 or blind or disables.
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.
Yes. You and each qualified minor child will receive a separate check or direct deposit based on the number of months of back pay awarded multiplied by the monthly benefit amo…unt. Your children's lump sum payments will be smaller than yours, but should be equal to each other unless one (or more) of your children was born during the settlement period. A child cannot receive back pay for any months awarded prior to his or her birth. The Social Security Administration requires the representative payee to set up separate savings accounts for each child, showing the child as the owner of the account, to ensure the lump sum benefits are protected. For more information, see Sources and Related Links, below.
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.
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.
Yes absolutely, my father receives both. Keep in mind that the Government doesn't like giving away money and they WILL send you around in circles for quite some time.
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.
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.
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.
Social Security Disability Benefits are impaired by a conviction for a felony as defined by federal law. Without knowing the details of petty larceny in your state, I don't kn…ow if your case is a felony under federal law. The general rule they are applying is that it is a felony if defined as a felony in that jurisdiction, or in a jurisdiction that doesn't classify any crime as a felony, the offense is punishable by death or imprisonment for a term exceeding 1 year. (NB: the operative word is punishable - not the sentence actually applied, if the offense is punishable by up to 18 months in prison that would be a felony in a jurisdiction that doesn't define felonies even if the judge handed down a 6 month suspended sentence.) If the disability isn't related to a felony conviction, then benefits are payable when not on the run or in prison. Jail (before conviction and sentencing) isn't prison (after conviction and sentencing). Four ways a felony conviction can have impact Social Security disability benefits: 1 You can't get disability benefits while incarcerated for a felony; 2 You can't get disability benefits while fleeing from prosecution for a felony; the arrest warrant, the prosecution, the prison sentence, or violating the probation or parole. 3 You can't get disability benefits for a disability caused by or aggravated while committing a felony; 4 You can't get survivor's benefits if you killed the person whose Social Security account is the source of the survivor's benefit. If you're wondering about what happens while a conviction is being appealed - no benefits are paid while in prison, but if the conviction is overturned then the benefits not paid while may be payable. If this only raised more questions, you can always call the Social Security Administration and ask them directly. If you like a long read, then the detailed Social Security Administration regulation is called: SSR 83-21: TITLE II: PERSON CONVICTED OF A FELONY and they cite the relevant laws the regulation is intended to implement: Sections 5(a), (b), and (c) of Public Law (P.L.) 96-473; sections 202(d), 216(i), 223(d) and 223(f) of the Social Security Act, as amended.
