Private Disability Insurance

  • You would have to review the policy that you purchased for the benefit period.
  • Relating specifically to individual disability insurance coverage - Yes, you should be eligible for disability benefits after retirement age. You should review the parameters of your coverage to see the specifics of benefits that are payable after age 65. usually you must continue to be working full time for at least 10 months out of the year and benefits will be reduced to 1-year benefit periods. There is a section of your policy specifically devoted to this topic. Review the wording and charts included in your actual contract.

Social Security

  • When one is collecting SSA retirement benefits they are not eligible for Social Security Disability as well.
  • Social Security Disability is for those persons below retirement age who have acquired enough work credits to be awarded disability payments if they incur an illness or physical impairment that prevents them from being employable at the level they were before said injury or illness.
  • SSA does have a supplemental program (SSI) for those who do not qualify for SSD benefits, however said program generally applies to persons with little or no available income. Information concerning all SS benefits and regulations can be found at Social Security Online.

Another View:

Although much of the forgoing is correct, it may confusing to readers. If you are referring to private disability insurance that you purchased through a private insurer, such insurance benefits usually terminate at age 65 (provided the insured has remained disabled for that long). At that point, the disabled person must make a decision of whether to elect to take Social Security then, or if means allow, to delay that election in which event he/she will likely receive a greater benefit.

Can a person get disability and Social Security?

When people refer to "Social Security," they general mean retirement benefits. SSDI is Social Security Disability Insurance, which is paid from the same fund, but available only to disabled people who are below full retirement age.If you're asking whether you can receive both Social Security retirement and Social Security disability benefits, the answer is no. If you meet SSA guidelines for disability, you receive SSDI until you become ineligible or reach retirement age, whichever occurs first. If you remain on SSDI until retirement, your Social Security benefits automatically convert from disability to retirement. You can't receive both at the same time.If you're asking whether you can receive private disability insurance payments after you begin receiving Social Security disability or retirement benefits, that depends on the policy. Consult with your insurance agent or employer for more information.
