Other Disability Coverage and Social Security Benefits

If someone should meet the criteria for both Social Security and other disability benefit programs, this is what the law states:

• Disability payments from private insurance plans do not affect your Social Security disability benefits.

• Also, if you receive Social Security disability benefits and Veterans Administration benefits, your Social Security benefit will not be reduced.

They may be paid by federal or state workers’ compensation agencies, employers or by insurance companies on behalf of employers.
