Frequently Asked Questions

Can I qualify for SSDI if I have another source of benefits (Social Security, private pension,  workers comp., etc.)?


Social Security Benefits such as SSDI can be reduced if you become eligible for other benefits programs such as worker's compensation, or even certain federal, state, and local government aid programs. However, the total combined payments after such a reduction should never be less than the original amount of the SSDI payment, so a person's net payments should remain the same.


Also, receiving a private pension from work on which you did NOT pay Social Security taxes (such as civil-service or non-profit work) can reduce your level of SSDI benefits. If your SSDI benefits are already set up to compensate for such a pension, be sure to notify the SSA immediately of any changes as they occur as you will be responsible for repaying any money you receive in error.


If your disability payments have been wrongfully reduced or denied due to supplemental income, contact a qualified Social Security lawyer now.
