If receiving long term disability can the insurance co make you take another job?

Technically the insurance can and often will make you take another job if your Disability contract has an "Any-Occupation" Definition of total disability. This definition says that benefits will only be paid if you are unable to do any occupation for which you can be expected to perform based on your experience, education and prior earnings.This is the primary reason why "Own-Occupation" Disability insurance is so important.

Is there an insurance that will pay your mortgage payments in case of job loss or disability?

This type of coverage can be had in either the form of life insurance or disability insurance. A life insurance policy can be of a type that has progressively lower indemnity benefits that roughly correlate with the balance owing on the mortgage. A disability policy compensates for lost income due to a covered disability--an inability to work. Those benefits may ve used to make mortgage payments, or for any other purpose.

Can you collect benefits from both state disability and the disability insurance that your employer offers?

You can receive both. I am not able to provide a more detailed answer because I do not know what state you work in and would be receiving disability benefit payments from. If you are eligible, you should file a claim with your state, and your group disability insurance carrier. The benefit payments that you receive through the state will be offset from the benefit payments that you receive through the group disability insurance carrier. When you file your disability claim through the group disability insurance carrier, make sure to tell them that you have filed for your state's disability benefit and what the claim's status is. This is of course assuming you are filing a claim; otherwise this is just FYI.

Can you get disability insurance if you are on bed rest?

You have not stated the reason for the bed rest. Assuming that it is because you are recuperating from an injury or a medical condition, the underwriting guidelines of the disability insurer to which you are applying may provide that a further disability (loss of earnings) from that condition will be excluded in the future. The exclusion may be permanent (for the whole duration of the policy), or it may end after a specified period of time. When applying for disability insurance, it is generally necessary to document current earnings. This is because disability insurance, like other kinds of insurance, is intended to make you whole (or nearly so), and is not intended to be a moneymaking proposition. Assuming that you were gainfully employed prior to the bed rest, the insurer will likely deem that level of earnings to be your baseline.

Why do disability insurance companies ask if you have other disability insurance?

Disability insurance often replaces up to 2/3 of your income. The idea is to keep money flowing in during times you are unable to work, but not to create an incentive for workers to stay disabled. Insurers want you returning to work as soon as possible, and shorter disabilities keep premiums affordable. Insurance companies ask if you have other coverage in order to make sure that you won't be making more money while hurt than when at work.
