If you receive disability from your job and recently after 3 years received social security disability can your long term disability take your back money and decrease your monthly benefit?
No. Edited to change answer to YES! If I understand you correctly, you are receiving LTD from an Insurance Policy you had through your Employer or bought yourself. Right? And you were just approved for Social Security and received your backpay - from the time you filed to the time you were awarded. Right? And now your LTD Company is asking for most of that money and have now decreased your monthly benefit by the amount of your Social Security check. Right? This is all VERY LEGAL AND NORMAL! Your LTD company pays you a certain amount - mine pays me 60% of my pre-tax income. Let's just say that is $1,000 (it isn't) And they have been paying you that $1,000 for 3 years. Now, Social Security is going to pay you $700 a month. And they gave you backpay for the past 2 years. Then your LTD company is going to start paying you only $300 a month - $1,000 minus $700 SS Check. You will NEVER receive Social Security Disability of $700 PLUS your $1,000 LTD check. I would assume you would see why this wouldn't happen, right? And your LTD is also entitled to their $700 a month for those 2 years that Social Security paid you for backpay. So you will owe them $16,800 ($700 x 24 months) So the original answer of NO is wrong. If this is the scenerio you are presenting anyway.

Contact the social security on their web site. It is a good site and easy to use.
Well first you need to apply for disability benefits with the Social Security Administration. You can apply at your local SSA office or by calling the 1-800 number.
can I receive money for my children if their father is on disablity? we are separated
The disability has to be 'approved' by a panel of people, one or several of which could be medical doctors. Just because you or your employer have a 'plan' that includes disab…ility payments doesn't mean that payments are automatically given for an injury. There is most likely a time limit imposed for such payments.
If you are told your back pay for disability social security has been released how long does it take to receive it?
You should receive a letter from the Social Security Administration telling you when to expect the money. Unfortunately, they are sometimes slow in sending the letters out.
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. You and each qualified minor child will receive a separate check or direct deposit based on the number of months of back pay awarded multiplied by the monthly benefit amo…unt. Your children's lump sum payments will be smaller than yours, but should be equal to each other unless one (or more) of your children was born during the settlement period. A child cannot receive back pay for any months awarded prior to his or her birth. The Social Security Administration requires the representative payee to set up separate savings accounts for each child, showing the child as the owner of the account, to ensure the lump sum benefits are protected. For more information, see Sources and Related Links, below.
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….
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.
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 say…s 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.
Should the non custodial parent receive social security disability benefits while the child lives with him for 3 months of the year?
Yes, but dealing with SS in doing the transfer may be difficult, so the other parent may need to pay it directly.
Can you receive unemployment benefits and Social Security Disability benefits in Michigan at the same time?
You have to be ready, willing, and able to work full time immediately for unemployment. SSD may allow some forms of work that does not affect your disability. If you met BOTH …criteria, then you might be able to.
You may apply for Social Security Disability Benefits. They willthen determine whether or not you are qualified. Just because youare currently out of work certainly does not m…ean that you arequalified. If you were just working fairly recently, I can tell youthat you will probably be denied.
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 amou…nt due to disability. It is possible that you could qualify for the SSI supplemental security income, which is based on disability 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.
Yes, and in any other investment, since SSDI is simply accelerated Social Security Benefits you would be entitled to due to your work history and the fact you paid taxes durin…g your working career. The SS administration simply estimates what a disabled person would get at full retirement age had they not been disabled and pays the benefit to the disabled person when they qualify as disabled. So, the money is up to the recipient to do with as they please and has nothing to do with checking accounts or savings account or any other assets. SSI benefits, confused with SSDI, is "needs based" and IS affected by a low-income persons assets.
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 y…ou are unable to work. . Neither SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance income) nor Unemployment benefits are considered "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.
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 fr…om other source(s) at the same time. See the Related Link below.
