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.

If you just received a large disability payment from Social Security is it wise to file Chapter 13 or would the court take the money?
All Social Security benefits are exempted under Federal law from attachment in any form by creditors. It might be beneficial to consult an attorney to see if you need to file any form of BK. It might be that state and/or federal laws render your property exempt from creditor action. You can find a l…isting of property that is protected under the BK laws of your state by searching (name of state) bankruptcy exemptions. (MORE)
Social Security Disability application asked me if I am receiving public disability benefit and Im wondering if WEA Trust LTD is a public disability benefit?

A felon may receive SSDI benefits if he or she is not incarcerated for more than 30 days and has no outstanding warrants. Social Security will not pay cash benefits to anyone living in a prison, jail, nursing home or other tax-supported facility; however, if the person remains eligible for disabi…lity under SSA guidelines, payments resume after release. Payees are not entitled to back benefits for the time spent incarcerated. (MORE)
If you receive Disability Income from a Long Term Disability Insurance Policy can creditors garnish the monthly income from this policy?
\nThe answer to your question is yes. If creditors can garnish your wages if you were working, then they can garnish the income you receive from your disability provider as well. The same procedures they would have to go through to garnish your wages from your employer, they would go through the dis…ability company (filing court documents). Unfortunately, creditors consider any income you receive, working or not, as income. (MORE)

As a disabled veteran, I am witness to such cases where the veteran does collect veterans administration and social security disability. Usually the veteran is receiving VA. disability at the 100% rate. Social security will fight awarding it, usually based on the applicants age. The older you are th…ough, the easier it is to collect both. (MORE)
No you don't have to, but if your spouse works it is to your advantage to file jointly. Also, these government pay backs only go to tax payers so I would wait until the country is back on its feet
Yes, my husband had to take early social security and since they could prove he was totally disabled he got full SS benefits.
No . Social Security Administration doesn't use W-2 forms.The form they use is called SSA-1099, which is a Social SecurityBenefit Statement. It's issued by the Social SecurityAdministration. It reports the total amount of benefits that therecipient received in the previous year. To get a replacemen…t SSA-1099 if yours hasn't come in the mail, youcan visit or call your local Social Security office, or use youronline "My Social Security" account (you will have to register ifyou haven't already).

Persons eligible for Social Security or Social Security Supplemental Income (SSI) in November or December 2008 or January 2009 will receive a $250 check in May 2009.
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 disability payments doesn't mean that payments are automatically given for an injury. There is most likely a time limit imposed fo…r such payments. (MORE)
In most cases, people will not be able to receive social securitydisability if they move overseas. However, each case is differentand there is no way to know until the Social SecurityAdministration makes a decision.
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 amount. 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. (MORE)
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.
Yes. You can receive Social Security benefits while living in most foreign countries, and Canada is one of them.
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 yo…ur experience, education and prior earnings. This is the primary reason why "Own-Occupation" Disability insurance is so important. (MORE)
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 mean 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 amount due to disability. It is possible that you could qualify for the SSI supplemental security income, which is based on di…sability 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. (MORE)
If you quit a job where does short term disability come into play.Perhaps a little more information will help us to give you anaccurate answer. Sorry.
Yes, if you qualify under both programs you can receive Social Security disability or retirement compensation and VA benefits at the same time without a reduction in benefits for either.
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 during your working career. The SS administration simply estimates what a disabled person would get at full retirement age had the…y 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. (MORE)
Diabetes is not a disease that's presumed to be disabling. You would have to show that the symptoms cannot be controlled by recognized drugs/procedures and that they make it impossible for you to perofrm any job for which you would be qualified based on your age, education, and work history.
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 you are unable to work. . Neither SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance income) nor Unemployment benefits are considere…d "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. (MORE)

You will use your medicare to pay for the medical costs of pregnancy. The question is, " can you physically and emotionally care for the baby ?"
The simple answer is Yes. A person can certainly qualify to receive Long Term Disability benefits because of having cancer. However, it is not the fact that he/she has cancer that qualifies him/her for benefits. In order to qualify for Long Term Disability benefits, a person must satisfy the requ…irements set forth by their Group or individual policy - which can be found by reviewing the definition of total disability along with the guidelines for Residual disability. Without getting too far into detail, the requirement to receive Disability benefits from a group or individually owned policy will be worded something like: To be considered totally disabled you must be unable to perform the material and substantial duties of your occupation (or "any" occupation, depending on your contract). Thus explaining that it is not necessarily Cancer that enables a person to receive Long Term Disability benefits, but rather the inability to perform his/her occupational duties that can be caused by cancer. In order to qualify for Residual benefits (benefits for partial disability), the debilitating injury or illness must cause a loss of income greater than 15-25%, depending on the policy. (MORE)

Yes absolutely, my father receives both. Keep in mind that the Government doesn't like giving away money and they WILL send you around in circles for quite some time.
Yes. Marriage, by itself, has no impact on whether you can receive disability benefits. If the Social Security Administration determines you are disabled and you (or your spouse) have accumulated an adequate number of work credits, you can receive benefit payments under SSDI (Social Security Disab…ility Insurance) regardless of your marital status, assets or income. If you are found disabled, but you (or your spouse) do not have an adequate number of work credits, you may qualify for SSI (Supplemental Security Income), but only if your income and assets fall below certain thresholds. Some recipients may qualify for both SSDI and SSI, but you are less likely to receive SSI payments if your spouse is working. For more information, see Related Links and Sources, below. (MORE)
The broad answer to the question is Yes. However, whether both categories of benefits are payable in a particular situation will depend upon whether the applicant is found to be "totally disabled" under SSDI guidelines, and how the private disability policy defines disability. A very comprehensive …explanation of the Social Security disability process appears on the Social Security website maintained by the Social Security Administration. Much, if not all of the initial application process can be done online, or you can go to a local Social Security Office. It often takes a while to get a determination, so patience is a virtue. The most critical element of the process involves medical documentation of your inability to work. A private disability insurance policy will define that which constitutes disability, and that definition must be met for benefits to be triggered. There are various definitions and the precise wording will dictate your entitlement to benefits (such as, you may be able to collect if you are disabled from doing that line of work that you did at the time of the disabling event, or you may be able to collect only if you are unable to do any sort of work). The long and the short of it is that you may very well be able to collectboth, but the specific answer is fact-driven. (MORE)
Alimony is awarded via a legal judgement. Disability is still considered income. You should Contact your attorney and apply for a garnishment of his wages or get a job.
The question has many variables. Among them are the source of the disability benefits and the nature of the disability that is claimed. For example, if the benefits are to be provided by a private disability policy, the insurer will have to ensure that the cause and nature of the disability comport…s with the policy terms. That is, not all disabilities will fit within the parameters of the policy definitions, nor will all causes. Therefore, the insurer will need to obtain all material medical records, earnings records to document the financial side of the claim, it may conduct surveillance of the claimant, and other activities pertinent to the processing of the claim. Normally, a reputable insurer will stay in regular touch with the claimant, but if it does not, the claimant should not hesitate to keep open the lines of communication on a reasonably timely basis.

A child who becomes disabled before age 22 can qualify for Social Security benefits under a parent's earnings record. Social Security continues to pay benefits until age 18 if he or she continues meeting childhood disability guidelines, and indefinitely as an adult-child as long as (s)he meets adult… disability guidelines. Once an adult-child is capable of working, (s)he may receive benefits under his/her own earnings record or continue under the parent's record, whichever benefit is higher. Children who receive benefits as dependents of a disabled parent are paid through the month prior to the month the child turns 18 or, if the child is still in high school or elementary school at that age, may continue receiving benefits beyond age 18 until the end of the school term or two months after his or her 19th birthday, whichever occurs first. SSA extensions are not automatic; the child's representative payee has to contact the Administration to request it. (MORE)

Only if the pregnancy has complications and the doctor recommends bed rest or otherwise decides that you can't work.
What if you are unemployed and are receiving unemployment benefits can you still get social security disability payments?
You don't say where you are - so I'll have to answer as per UK law... I would say no. If you're simply unemployed, but capable of working, you can claim unemployment benefit. If you're on a disability allowance - that means you're incapable of work (and are thus not entitled to unemployment benefit)…. To claim unemployment benefit, you must be actively seeking work. If you're incapable of working, you're not entitled to unemployment benefit ! You cannot meet the criteria of BOTH benefits ! (MORE)
Social Security Disability Benefits are impaired by a conviction for a felony as defined by federal law. Without knowing the details of petty larceny in your state, I don't know if your case is a felony under federal law. The general rule they are applying is that it is a felony if defined as a felo…ny in that jurisdiction, or in a jurisdiction that doesn't classify any crime as a felony, the offense is punishable by death or imprisonment for a term exceeding 1 year. (NB: the operative word is punishable - not the sentence actually applied, if the offense is punishable by up to 18 months in prison that would be a felony in a jurisdiction that doesn't define felonies even if the judge handed down a 6 month suspended sentence.) If the disability isn't related to a felony conviction, then benefits are payable when not on the run or in prison. Jail (before conviction and sentencing) isn't prison (after conviction and sentencing). Four ways a felony conviction can have impact Social Security disability benefits: 1 You can't get disability benefits while incarcerated for a felony; 2 You can't get disability benefits while fleeing from prosecution for a felony; the arrest warrant, the prosecution, the prison sentence, or violating the probation or parole. 3 You can't get disability benefits for a disability caused by or aggravated while committing a felony; 4 You can't get survivor's benefits if you killed the person whose Social Security account is the source of the survivor's benefit. If you're wondering about what happens while a conviction is being appealed - no benefits are paid while in prison, but if the conviction is overturned then the benefits not paid while may be payable. If this only raised more questions, you can always call the Social Security Administration and ask them directly. If you like a long read, then the detailed Social Security Administration regulation is called: SSR 83-21: TITLE II: PERSON CONVICTED OF A FELONY and they cite the relevant laws the regulation is intended to implement: Sections 5(a), (b), and (c) of Public Law (P.L.) 96-473; sections 202(d), 216(i), 223(d) and 223(f) of the Social Security Act, as amended.

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 th…e 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. (MORE)
