Answer No. All Social Security benefits (SS,SSD,SSI) are protected by federal law and are exempt to creditor action . This does not apply to federal or state tax arrearages or court ordered child support . - - - - - - - - Generally no. HOWEVER - they can be garnished for payment of de…bts owed to the federal government (taxes, federal loans, etc) AND for the nonpayment of child support or alimony . - - - - - - - - Social Security benefits of any type cannot be garnished for creditor debt, they are protected against such action by federal law. Solution to protect your Social Security from creditors:1- electronic deposit to checking account. 2-withdraw what you don't need to cover in bills. place into interest bearing savings account NOT RELATED YOUR CHECKING ACCOUNT, (different bank) or put it in your mattress. . I DISAGREE IN PART TO THE SOLUTIONS, HERE'S WHY: If you know a judgment/garnishment is coming, get your money out fast and do not deposit your check into ANY Bank or Credit Union account in order to protect it, separate account, or otherwise, until you have a working solution you are comfortable with. While it is true that SSDI monthly benefits and arrearages are protected from most garnishments by Federal Statue, BANK ACCOUNTS ARE NOT! Therefore, you could find your bank account frozen and the your money withdrawn by creditors, even if the money is in a joint account. The check and the benefits are protected, but once they are deposited into a bank account they are fair game to levy/garnish by creditors. It may take the filing of court papers, a lengthly process, and time without your money if you are able to prove the origin of the money. Three options I can think of are: 1. Notify via certified mail/return receipt requested your bank, the creditor, their lawyers, and the court that the funds in the specified accounts are exempt from garnishment/attachment per Federal Statute. Open a brand new account and set up direct deposit to prevent "commingling" of funds from any other sources. 2. Change the method of receipt of your funds to the Debit Card for people without bank accounts offered by the SSA. Money is filled into the card which is used just like a MAC Debit card. 3. Store the money under your mattress. I agree the govement only can take there money if it's loans from the usa but if it's like civil matters they can not touch you what so ever no matter what even if a judge has order a seizoure of your accounts you can call the ssdi people and they will stop it child support can be garnished as well but there is a way to stop it too i have seen it done ( Full Answer )
If you collect private disability then qualify for social security disability can you collect them both My private plan says nothing about social security benefits?
Yes you can. However if your collecting disability benefits from a LTD then they will most likely kick you off once you start receiving your SSDI benefits. However, if you trying to get on SSI, which is income based, you wont be able to collect both.
A felon may receive SSDI benefits if he or she is not incarcerated for more than 30 days and has no outstanding warrants. Social Security will not pay cash benefits to anyone living in a prison, jail, nursing home or other tax-supported facility; however, if the person remains eligible for disabi…lity under SSA guidelines, payments resume after release. Payees are not entitled to back benefits for the time spent incarcerated. ( Full Answer )
Contact the social security on their web site. It is a good site and easy to use.

As a disabled veteran, I am witness to such cases where the veteran does collect veterans administration and social security disability. Usually the veteran is receiving VA. disability at the 100% rate. Social security will fight awarding it, usually based on the applicants age. The older you are th…ough, the easier it is to collect both. ( Full Answer )
No you don't have to, but if your spouse works it is to your advantage to file jointly. Also, these government pay backs only go to tax payers so I would wait until the country is back on its feet
Yes, my husband had to take early social security and since they could prove he was totally disabled he got full SS benefits.
No . Social Security Administration doesn't use W-2 forms.The form they use is called SSA-1099, which is a Social SecurityBenefit Statement. It's issued by the Social SecurityAdministration. It reports the total amount of benefits that therecipient received in the previous year. To get a replacemen…t SSA-1099 if yours hasn't come in the mail, youcan visit or call your local Social Security office, or use youronline "My Social Security" account (you will have to register ifyou haven't already).

According to the IRS, all gambling winnings are considered income, therefore all gambling winnings are taxable and must be claimed, under the same rules and limitations as any other income.
Possibly. See Tables 1, 2, and 3 on pages 2, 3, and 4 of Publication 501 to determine if you are required to file a federal return: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p501.pdf Check your state income tax return instructions or your state tax agency to see if you are required to file a state retu…rn. Of course, if you had taxes withheld and are owed a refund, you should file in order to receive the refund even if you are not required to file. Yes, I certainly do. ( Full Answer )

Yes, you can receive both a teacher's pension and Social Security benefits without the two affecting each other. Although administered by individual states, SSA operates under federal statutes and regulations. Your state of residence is irrelevant under benefit guidelines. Only earned income… is counted toward the $14,160 annual cap in place between the ages of 62 and the year you reach full retirement age (typically 66, at present). The earning cap increases to $37,680 in January of the year you turn 66, and is lifted completely the month of your birthday. Afterward, there is no earned-income limit. Pension checks, 401k payouts, annuities, capital gains, and other investments are not counted toward the income limit at any time. ( Full Answer )

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, check with your local office for the limits as they are different in each state and or country. There are limits to your earnings before the earnings effect your benifits.
No, Social Security benefits continue unless you reenter the workforce and engage in Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA), which translates to earning more than an average of $1,000 per month for most disabilities or $1,640 per month for blindness. If you remain unemployed or employed below the lev…el of SGA, disability benefits automatically convert to retirement benefits when you reach full retirement age (for people born before 1943, age 65; for people born between 1943 and 1954, age 66). Your benefit amount will usually remain the same, except for standard cost of living adjustments (COLA), but there will no longer be a limit on the amount of income you can earn. ( Full Answer )
If you are sufficienty fit to care for and transport a child, maybe. I f you have a mental disability , probably not. Honestly consider your motivations for wanting to adopt. Your ONLY reason should be for the benefit of the child.
While you are incarcerated yes, but most can generally gain this back once they are not incarcerated.
Yes. You can receive Social Security benefits while living in most foreign countries, and Canada is one of them.
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 amount due to disability. It is possible that you could qualify for the SSI supplemental security income, which is based on di…sability 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. ( Full Answer )
Yes, if you qualify under both programs you can receive Social Security disability or retirement compensation and VA benefits at the same time without a reduction in benefits for either.
Yes, if you own a private Disability insurance policy , the guidelines and benefits are accounted for separately from Social Security benefits. A person can be eligible to receive both benefits. A private Disability policy can have two types of benefits: Base and Social Insurance benefit. Ba…se benefits are payable regardless of Social Security benefits. Social Insurance benefits will offset dollar-for-dollar with any Social Security benefits you are eligible for. You can revert to your original Disability insurance policy, or policy summary to determine whether you have base or Social insurance benefits. You can also contact the insurance company your policy was written through to confirm this information. ( Full Answer )
Diabetes is not a disease that's presumed to be disabling. You would have to show that the symptoms cannot be controlled by recognized drugs/procedures and that they make it impossible for you to perofrm any job for which you would be qualified based on your age, education, and work history.
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 you are unable to work. . Neither SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance income) nor Unemployment benefits are considere…d "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. ( Full Answer )

Your deceased husband received Social Security Disability can you receive Social Security at age 60 on his record?
Yes, a widow or widower can draw reduced survivors' benefits at age 60, even if the spouse's source of income was SSDI. In order to receive the full amount, you would have to wait until normal retirement age (65 for people born before 1943; 66 for people born between 1943 and 1954) to file.
Only if the retirement disability is not from SSA (e.g., workers' comp or a public disability pension). One can receive Social Security disability and disability payments from other source(s) at the same time. See the Related Link below.
If you are on a disability retirement pension from government service which is not taxed will social security income be affected?
Yes it could affect the amount of your SSB that could become taxable income on your 1040 income tax return.

When calculating social security income thresholds are pensions from private companies or the military included?
No, not if this is about the earnings test amount of $14,160 before your SSB are reduced. Pension income is NOT earned income for this purpose. Only the amount of income that you have worked for and earned would be used for the earnings test amount of $14,160.

Can a wife receive disability social security because her husband receives social security disability?
No, to receive social security disability you must be considered disabled under the social security's listing of impairments.
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. ( Full Answer )

Can you receive Social Security benefits at age 60 without being disabled or widowed but facing unemployment?
No, unfortunately, you have to be at least 62 years old to receive Social Security retirement benefits.
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 during 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.

Does Social Security conduct CDRs on disabled people age 55 and over rated improvement not expected?
Yes. Everyone on Social Security Disability (SSDI) receives a diary date upon approval, when the SSA schedules a routine Continuing Disability Review (CDR). A diary date may be set for 18 months, 3 years, or 7 years, depending on the expectation of improvement. People over age 50 and/or those who…se conditions are considered unlikely to improve, typically receive a 7-year diary. These may be conducted later than scheduled if the disability determinations unit in your state has a backlog of CDRs to contend with. If you do not reach retirement age within seven years of being declared disabled, you will probably only receive a short-form CDR approximately seven years after you are approved for benefits (not the disability date on your award letter). The short forms are scored by computer and are only reviewed by a live examiner if answers about earned income, activity and medical condition fall outside expected ranges. The Social Security Administration takes age into consideration when deciding whether a person should continue on disability, because older workers are considered less likely to acquire new skills. People approaching retirement age are rarely discontinued, unless they have worked above SGA or show substantial medical improvement. ( Full Answer )
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. ( Full Answer )

Are Texas teachers who receive state retirement able to collect on husband's Social Security disability when they reach age 62?
no....because most teachers pay only into TRS (Teacher Retirement System) and not into SS, they will receive their TRS only...the government stopped a loop hole back in 2004 for receiving TRS and SS, because the government considers it double-dipping...so if a spouse paid into SS, the teacher cannot… get spousal benefits from the spouse because it would be considered double dipping...there is a small chance that the teacher would be eligible for a small amount of her spouse's SS, or even her own if she worked her 40 quarters before teaching, but the amount would be subject to two penalties called the GPO and Windfall...please check your local SS office on more of these two penalties.

Yes, if you have a disability insurance policy with a "base benefit" that does not integrate with social insurance benefits. .
You should receive something with the same information but, is called something other than a w-2.
Yup, you can collect any pension money coming to you without it affecting your social security.
Yes, it is very common for disability insurance plans to include a clause for social security disability, meaning the insurance company will pay a portion of the monthly benefit, expecting that you would apply for social security benefits to pay for the "Supplemental Social Security benefits". In th…e event you get declined by Social Security, then the insurance company would cover the additional supplemental benefits. Employer group plans as well as individual disability insurance plans can include that clause. ( Full Answer )
