== == DI is meant to support you financially when you can't work. Insurance companies do not wish to pay you the benefit if you can still do your job. So the answer is no. There may be some loopholes with very good coverage such as an Own Occ policy where if you were a Dr and could not do your job, you would collect DI but maybe still be able to flip burgers at the same time. Also, there are some benefits that allow you to work PT and still collect part of your DI.

Can an illegal alien be eligible to receive disability benefits?

A person that is illegally living and working in the United States should not be able to receive Disability benefits.Insurance Companies will require citizenship information when someone applies for a disability insurance policy. You must either be a US citizen or have some type of visa that indicates your intent of relocating and establishing your life in the US. Therefore, a person living in the US and working illegally can not receive benefits from an individual or group plan.Social Security disability benefits are partially impacted by the number of years a person has been working and how much has been paid toward Social security disability throughout his/her working years. If the person is illegally working in the US, the chances are they do not have a Social Security number and are not contributing or even registered with the US Social Security Administration.

If someone has nystagmus can they receive disability?

If the Nystagmus condition this person has is severe enough, then yes they can qualify for Disability benefits. However it is not the simple fact of having Nystagmus that will enable them to receive Disability benefits.Disability insurance companies and Social Security disability do not look at the specific condition a claimant has, but more so the effect this condition has on the person's ability to work. Disability insurance will only pay benefits when a person is prevented from working due to an illness or injury.Therefore, if the Nystagmus prevents a person from being able to work, then depending on the Disability insurance policy they have, there is a good chance they can qualify for benefits. If the Nystagmus causes does not prevent the person from being able to work, then they will not be eligible for benefits.

If you receive Disability Income from a Long Term Disability Insurance Policy can creditors garnish the monthly income from this policy?

The answer to your question is yes. If creditors can garnish your wages if you were working, then they can garnish the income you receive from your disability provider as well.

Unfortunately, creditors consider any income you receive, working or not, as income.

Can you collect disability insurance for an ulcer?

This depends on the type of Disability insurance you have and also how bad the ulcer is. Normally, individual and group Disability insurance requires that you be unable to perform the material duties of your current occupation, in order to qualify and receive any benefits. If the ulcer is preventing you from working in your job, then there is a chance you may qualify for benefits. If it does not affect your ability to work, then you should not expect to receive benefits. If you are counting on Social Security Disability, you should not expect to be paid disability benefits. Social Security is significantly more difficult to qualify for. You must essentially be unable to do any form of work, in order to be considered disabled and eligible for benefits.

Workers compensation only applies if you are injured while at work performing your regular duties. You apply for it through the state. Disability insurance is generally sold by insurance companies, except for state disability insurance which only applies to long term situations, and it covers income lost when you are not able to work due to an injury, illness, or other disabilities that prevent you from working.

Workers comp is limited by law, how much disability pays all depends on the type of coverage you buy.

Can you work and still collect veterans disability benefits?

Yes, you can. However, if you receive a high rating -- 100 percent, for example -- you could encounter issues by working because you are considered "unemployable."

Veterans who continue to work generally are not eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. A VA-accredited claims agent such as Allsup can help you coordinate multiple disability benefits.

Will moving to another state affect your disability benefits?

Your individual disability insurance policy is portable and benefits will not be affected by moving to a different state. If you have disability insurance through your employer, and move in a new state while working for the same employer, benefits will not be changed. However, if you leave your employer, you may lose the disability insurance benefits through a group DI policy. If you are currently disabled and are receiving disability benefits from the state, you will have to check with the new state regulations on social security DI; If you are receiving benefits through a personal/ individual insurance policy from an insurance company, then benefits are not going to be affected by the state of residence.

Can you collect a disability check and hide it from new employer?

It's difficult to tell what you're really asking in this question.Scenario 1If you're currently receiving disability benefits and working without violating a private insurance policy's rules or government regulations, then you're not required to reveal your disability status and there is no real way for the employer to access your medical records.If you apply for health insurance benefits through this employer, you would probably have to reveal pre-existing conditions to the insurance carrier. This information should not have to include your disability status.Scenario 2If you want to file a disability claim against a private insurance policy purchased through your new employer, there's no way you can hide it because the insurance company will need to verify certain qualifying information with the Human Resources department. You will also be bound by the contract you signed with the insurance company, which may include a provision against working and drawing disability at the same time.Scenario 3If you receive a monthly Social Security Disability (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) check, and you engage in Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA) by earning more than $1,000 per month ($1,640, if blind), and you are terminated from disability, your employer may find out if the government garnishes your paycheck for overpayment of benefits.
