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.

Can you receive disability from your job and disability from social security at the same time?

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 the 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.

Can long term disability deduct what SD is giving you for your child due to your disability?

if your long term disability is integrated with social security disability, then yes. This is the case for most employer paid long term disability plans, or your employee benefits package. If the Long-Term DI policy is an individual plan, not through your employer - you could receive the full base benefit if it's not integraded with Social Security Disability Benefits.
