In general: Primary - means that the disabled person's Social Security benefit reduces the amount of LTD paid. Typically, the reduction is dollar for dollar - every dollar of SS benefit reduces the LTD benefit by one dollar. Full - means that both the disabled person's Social Security benefit and any spouse/child Social Security benefits reduce the amount of LTD paid. Typically the reduction is dollar for dollar. Family - usually means the same as Full above. Backdoor - means that the LTD plan looks at three different calculations and pays the lesser of the three: 1. the benefit percentage (often 60%) of the disabled person's earnings, reduced by all of the reductions allowed by the plan EXCEPT for Family SS benefits; or 2. a higher benefit percentage (often 70%) of the disabled person's earnings, reduced by all of the reductions allowed by the plan, INCLUDING Family SS benefits; or 3. the maximum monthly benefit (whatever dollar limit or cap that is set by the plan). Please keep in mind that these are general definitions. Your plan could use different definitions or have unusual features that modify any of the above statements.

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. R…ight? 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.
It depends upon the level at which the appeal has been filed. If it involves a hearing by a federal judge the current time frame is approximately two years.
I would really like to find out when my benefits are affailable. Lawers tell me I have qualified but having difficulty finding out when will I reciecve monthly checks.
The state you live in will not impact your eligibility to receive Disability benefits from a Long-Term disability policy. Therefore, Yes you are able to collect Long-Term Disa…bility (LTD) benefits while receiving Social Security (SS) benefits. To be more specific though, whether or not you actually receive benefits from your LTD policy will have everything to do with the wording in the contract. If you have group coverage through work, then it is likely that any benefits you receive from Social Security will offset the benefits payable through your LTD plan dollar-for-dollar. In this situation, even though you are able to receive LTD from your company policy, you may not actually receive any from it if you are receiving Social Security benefits equivalent or higher than the monthly benefit it provides. The same consequences apply for Federal Government employees as through the FERS program. Additionally, if you own an individual policy that has Social Insurance offset benefits, then theses benefits will also be offset dollar-for-dollar. If you own an individual LTD policy that does not have Social Insurance benefits than you would be able to collect on Social Security benefits and 100% of the benefits provided through your LTD policy. This is actually one of the main reasons why individual LTD coverage is much better than group coverage.
Can you collect long term disability insurance and social security retirement benefits at the same time?

If the child is collecting Social Security Disability from the disabled parent's benefit, he or she may generally collect it until the age of 18. However, under current law, i…f the child remains a full-time student, benefits can continue until age 19.
You don't. The whole idea behind SSD is that you have a disability preventing you from working (at least full time) so it provides an income. You may be thinking of sick pay w…hich, if paid by the company, varies depending on your contract, however social security sick pay is always available if unpaid by company. (NB Both disability and sick pay claims MUST be backed up by medical certification). The whole idea behind Social Security was originally to provide a slight safety net for those that failed to properly save, or those who savings were wiped out during the depression. The idea of living off of supplemental security, as it was called at first, was not the plan. ONLY those that worked for a certain number of years qualified for this money. The system has degraded over the years to allow more and more "eligible" people to receive this money and attempt to "live" off of this money. The system requirements are now so different that it is possible to survive off of this income and it is possible to receive money even when you have never worked.
Social security is for permanent disabilities only - those lasting at least one year or expected to result in death.
A child who becomes disabled before age 22 can qualify for Social Security benefits under a parent's earnings record. Social Security continues to pay benefits until age 18 if… he or she continues meeting childhood disability guidelines, and indefinitely as an adult-child as long as (s)he meets adult disability guidelines. Once an adult-child is capable of working, (s)he may receive benefits under his/her own earnings record or continue under the parent's record, whichever benefit is higher. Children who receive benefits as dependents of a disabled parent are paid through the month prior to the month the child turns 18 or, if the child is still in high school or elementary school at that age, may continue receiving benefits beyond age 18 until the end of the school term or two months after his or her 19th birthday, whichever occurs first. SSA extensions are not automatic; the child's representative payee has to contact the Administration to request it.
Do you have to apply for Social Security Disability when you start getting Long Term Disability from your employer?
Yes, if your disability insurance policy has a benefit that is integrated with social insurance benefits. Most employer paid disability insurance policies are integrated with… social security benefits, because of the lower premium they have to pay.Individual disability insurance plans can be purchased with or without social security integration. Benefits that are not integrated with social security benefits will not be affected whether you apply or not for social security disability benefits.
I am currently on Long Term Disability and Social Security Disability benefits for a chronic illness. Will I be able to continue receiving these benefits if I decide to get pregnant?
Only if the pregnancy has complications and the doctor recommends bed rest or otherwise decides that you can't work.
There has never been an obsolete answer to this continuously asked question. But if you're permanently disable, then your benefits will not end. If you're about to become ful…ly retired, then you'll start to receive "Retirement Benefits" which doesn't change any of your income benefits. -Kanaan Yarahuan Source(s): - Google - Social Security paper work - My mother - My brother - 30 Minutes of research
There is a very wide variety of "insurance" coverage from employers, public sources and private policies, and you should address your questions to the administrator of the ins…urance plan in order to get an accurate answer - but in general... Social Security Disability Benefits aren't a means tested program; eligibility doesn't depend on whether or not you have some other means of support. Most long term disability insurance is designed to replace your income in conjunction with Social Security disability benefit so that the sum of the two benefits enables you to continue in a lifestyle similar to the one you had before you became disabled.
The length of time it takes to receive a decision on your disability claim is from three to five months. That is, if you receive a favorable decision. If not, you may have to …appeal for years; how many depends on the number of denials you receive. It can take up to six years or even longer. http://www.socialsecurityoffices.us/length-of-time-to-receive-approval-or-denial/
The basic Federal payment is a standard amount for everyone. States may chip in a supplemental amount. Raises are determined by Congress and are not on a set schedule. If …your circumstances change and deductions for other payments should no longer be taken, you should visit Social Security for an adjustment.
