Thanks for the feedback!
No, Pennsylvania is not one of the fourteen states that taxes Social Security benefits.
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.
Yes, because they are separate programs, you can collect from both as long as you qualify for both.
Illinois, Utah, and Louisiana, according to the Related Link below.
I have no personal knowledge but according to what I was just reading, all but these The 14 states with independent retirement systems for teachers are: Alaska | Maine / …California | Massachusetts / Colorado | Minnesota / Connecticut | Missouri / Illinois | Nevada / Kentucky | Ohio / Louisiana | Texas
Absolutely. As long as you qualify for each of them individually. Three states currently will offset your unemployment benefits by your Social Security (not the other way arou…nd) and they are Illinois, Virginia, and Utah.
Payment for retirement begins at 62 (at a reduced level), but payment for disability can be at any age.
Are teachers who receive state retirement ever able to collect Social Security My State says no. Do I have to move to one of the 14 States without state pensions I need more info.?
It depends on several factors. First of all if your entire working career has been as a teacher in one of the 14 states whose teachers do not pay into social security, then th…e answer would be that you would receive no social security benefit because you never paid any money into it. Now, lets say you work as a teacher for 15 years in a state whose teachers DO pay into social security, such as Pennsylvania. You then decide to work for 15 years as a teacher in Ohio whose teachers do NOT pay into social security. Once you retire, you would indeed get social security due to the fact you worked 15 years in PA and paid into SS. HOWEVER, you would take a hit (called the Windfall Provision) because you are also collecting money from Ohio's pension.
Yes, pension and Social Security payments may be garnished by the IRS to satisfy Federal tax levies and judgments. Please see the links below for additional information.
Florida and Nevada
Can you still collect total social security and keep your VA non service connected disability pension?
Answer . There is an income threshold for the VA non-service-connected disability pension. So, it depends upon how much you receive from Social Security whether you would b…e eligible for any amount of the disability pension. The income threshold was/is $10,929.00, but should be increasing in December 2007. Check out the va.gov website for more info.
Whether or not a woman can collect on her husbands social security depends on several factors. First, she has to be old enough or disabled. Second, she has to have been marrie…d long enough. Then, she must be widowed or divorced. Other rules may apply. As with everything involving the government, exceptions exist. You will need to see someone at the social security office. If you try to contact someone by phone, you will get a recorded message that someone will get back to you. One person has been waiting 20 years for his call to be returned. You can try the internet. You may or may not get satisfaction. If you visit a social security office, you will be able to get an appointment with a live human being.
Yes. Social Security is not a mean-tested program, but a form of government-administered pension (the retirement benefits, at least) that you paid into through FICA taxes duri…ng your working years. Unearned income such as pensions, annuities, 401K payouts, interest and dividends, gifts, etc., will not affect your Social Security benefits in any way. If you have not yet reached full retirement age (65 for people born before 1943; 66 for those born between 1943 and 1954) but continue working, there are some restrictions on salaries or wages, but once you reach full retirement age, there is no limit on this form of income either.
Call 1-800-772-1213 or visit Social Security Online for answers. You should contact SSA for specific answer. Of course a teacher can collect social security from a spouse. H…OWEVER, if a teacher worked in a state whose teachers do NOT pay into Social Security (there are 14 of them), their spouse's social security will be reduced. Again, please consult your attorneys, tax advisor, and social security for detailed information and specifics. Ask about WEP (Windfall Provision) and GPO (Government Pension Offset).
If you have 40 or more quarters that you have paid into Social Security--you are eligible for Medicare AND can collect a PORTION of your SS. There is an offset because of your… teacher pension.
Can a collection company freeze bank accounts that contain disability pension and social security checks in Pennsylvania?
A collection agency cannot seize a bank account period. ALL SS benefits are exempt from creditors. A collection agency cannot threaten to take your property nor do they have …the power to do so. They can inform you that the account is being referred to a collection attorney who can pursue legal action. Be that as it may, your bank accounts are safe. You can inform the agency and the bank in no uncertain terms if they attempt such an action, you are prepared to sue for damages. The only way to stop collection bullies, is to play offense not defense.
