Can you collect California state disability and Social Security Disability at the same time?
You should be able to. If you are working past retirement age and paying in to state disability you should be able to collect up to 12 months. State disability is different then federal social security. If you are paying in and its within the 12 months you should be eligible to collect on what you paid for, it is insurance.

NO. You can't collect both state disability and unemployment at the same time in CA. Look at the eligibility requirements for SDI.
Yes, because regular Social Security benefits (as opposed to Social Security Disability benefits) is not affected by other disabilities. Depending upon the facts, Social …Security Disability may be somewhat different. Benefits are granted under SSDI if it has been determined that thea pplicant is wholly unable to perform any kind of job for compensation (and if other conditions are met, such as having paid in to the system for a sufficient length of time). Under a private disability policy, depending upon its definition of "disability", you may be ble to collect if you are unable to perform the work duties of the job that you had at the time of onset of your disability. Other definitions of "disability" may allow benefits if you are unable to perform a specific occupation or progession. That is, if a physician has a policy that provides disability benefits if he can no longer be an orthopedic surgeon, he may may still be able to collect benefits if his disability does not prevent him from reviewing medical records for compensation.
Can I collect social security disability benefits and Florida State disability benefits at the same time?
Florida does not have state disability benefits. You can get private disability coverage in Florida. Check your policy to see the integration language relating to social sec…urity disability. You can collect on both policies at the same time, however the private policies will offset the benefit to a varying degree.
Will you have to pay taxes if you collect Social Security benefits and state disability at the same time?
The answer depends on your total household income and your state of residence. If you are single and receive $25,000 per year or more in taxable income, or $32,000 for a coupl…e filing jointly, you may have to pay federal tax on a portion of your benefits. Currently, fourteen of the 50 states also apply some form of tax to these benefits if your total income exceeds a certain threshold.
Yes you can and most often are entitled to both. Each makes it'sown separate decisions though. One doesn't automatically make youeligible for the other. You must apply for eac…h one separately.Most people consult an attorney for military disability throughservice groups usually that can be found with offices at major VAhospitals.
Can you file a state disability insurance claim and a social security disability claim at the same time?
You can file a claim with both, but you may not be paid twice. State disability programs typically pay benefits for only 6 or 12 months, then the benefits end. Social secur…ity has a five month waiting period before benefits begin.
Can a California resident collect Social Security Disability Insurance and Unemployment Insurance benefits at same time?
To collect SSDI you have to prove you are totally disabled and unable to work. Unemployment compensation requires you to be willing, able, and actively seeking full time work …immediately. These two concepts are mutually exclusive, so No, you could not collect both at the same time.
Can you collect unemployment benefits and Social Security Disability benefits at the same time in Connecticut?
Yes. Modification: You might collect both IF you are physically, mentally able and available according to "Basic Eligibility Requirements" on page 4 of the Related Link b…elow. This would mean the Social Security Disability must not be too severe (and SSD investigators thoroughly check out a claimant)
Worker's Comp (disability insurance) is different from Social Security and you can collect both if you qualify for both.
Technically and legally, yes, but there are a few considerations to keep in mind. While the Social Security Administration doesn't prohibit people on (SSDI) disability from… receiving unemployment checks, state unemployment regulations usually require all unemployment recipients to be willing and able to accept full-time work. This creates a conflict, because you're generally not eligible for Social Security disability benefits if you're capable of full-time work. When you file for unemployment compensation, all states require you to provide your Social Security number (authorized under Internal Revenue Code of 1954, 26 U.S.C. 85, Sections 6011(a), 6050(b), 6109(a), P.L. 98-369, Section 1137(a)(1)). They will share information about your claim with other government agencies to determine how unemployment affects other benefits you may receive, such as Medicaid and food stamps. If you are already receiving Social Security Disability (SSDI), and you are filing an unemployment claim that shows you earned more than an average of $1,000 per month, the Social Security Administration will consider you to have engaged in Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA), which will cause problems. The SSA allows people on disability to attempt to reenter the workforce without penalty by providing nine non-consecutive trial work months during which you can earn in excess of $1,000 per month without jeopardizing your benefits. However, any month that you earn more than $720 is counted toward your trial work period (TWP), so if you have already used up your nine-month allotment and you continued to earn in excess of $1,000 per month, the Social Security Administration may terminate your disability status or may initiate a Continuing Disability Review (CDR) to determine if your disability status should be terminated. If you earned more than $1,000 per month for more than nine months, you may be required to repay the Social Security Administration for overpaid benefits and you may also be terminated from disability. On the other hand, if you file for unemployment compensation based on earnings averaging $1,000 per month or less (below SGA), the unemployment claim is legitimate and shouldn't raise any red flags. If you are in the process of filing for Social Security disability , the conflict between simultaneously claiming to be incapable of "Substantial Gainful Activity" (SGA), which generally translates to full-time work, and contractually agreeing that you're willing to accept full-time work (under state unemployment regulations) in exchange for unemployment compensation, may result in being denied disability status (most initial claims and first appeals are denied, anyway). If you persist with the disability claim and proceed to a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ), it will take approximately 18 months to two years from the date you originally filed the claim until your hearing date. By then, your unemployment compensation will (probably) have been exhausted and you will either have been forced to accept employment (thus ending your disability claim for all practical purposes) or will continue to be unemployed or be under-employed. This may be a factor in the judge's decision to award or deny disability, but it will not necessarily prevent you from receiving disability benefits. The disability determination process is usually long, and should not be viewed as a way of generating quick cash. For information regarding your specific circumstances, contact the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213, or seek consultation with a disability attorney.
Technically, yes, but it's risky. While the Social Security Administration doesn't prohibit people on (SSDI) disability from receiving unemployment checks, the state of Wis…consin requires all unemployment recipients to be willing and able to accept full-time work. This creates a conflict, because you're generally not eligible for Social Security disability benefits if you're capable of full-time work. The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development requires you provide your Social Security number, or they won't process your claim (authorized under Internal Revenue Code of 1954, 26 U.S.C. 85, Sections 6011(a), 6050(b), 6109(a), P.L. 98-369, Section 1137(a)(1) and under Wisconsin Statute Section 108.04(2)(e)). The rules clearly state that they will share information about your claim with other government agencies to determine how unemployment affects other benefits you may receive, such as Medicaid and food stamps. The conflict between simultaneously claiming to be incapable of "Substantial Gainful Activity" (SGA), which generally translates to full-time work, and contractually agreeing you're willing to accept full-time work (under Wisconsin rules) in exchange for unemployment compensation, has the potential to trigger a Continuing Disability Review (CDR), which may result in the SSA determining you no longer meet disability requirements. If you believe your circumstances may create an exception, you can call the Social Security Administration anonymously at 1-800-772-1213, explain your situation, and ask their advice.
SS disability is a Federal benefit. federal benefits are same for all states and only vary based on rules for individuals not states. i.e. How much YOU specifically have paid …into social security and for how long. These rules are same and applicable irrespective of which state you are living in.
There is a very wide variety of "insurance" coverage from employers, public sources and private policies, and you should address your questions to the administrator of the ins…urance plan in order to get an accurate answer - but in general... Social Security Disability Benefits aren't a means tested program; eligibility doesn't depend on whether or not you have some other means of support. Most long term disability insurance is designed to replace your income in conjunction with Social Security disability benefit so that the sum of the two benefits enables you to continue in a lifestyle similar to the one you had before you became disabled.
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 benef…it, 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.
Unemployment insurance benefits are not counted under the Social Security annual earnings test and therefore do not affect your receipt of Social Security benefits. Supplem…ental Security Income and Social Security Disability are different programs and are processed in each their own way, including how they are approved or disapproved as well as requirements for eligibility. http://www.socialsecurityoffices.us/receiving-social-security-and-unemployment-at-the-same-time/
Not anywhere, you get one or the other.
