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.
This depends on many factors, first of which what type of insurance are you talking about (Life, car, health, disability,rental, homeowners.....)?
