If someone should meet the criteria for both Social Security and other disability benefit programs, this is what the law states:
â€¢ Disability payments from private insurance plans do not affect your Social Security disability benefits.
â€¢ Also, if you receive Social Security disability benefits and Veterans Administration benefits, your Social Security benefit will not be reduced.
However, workersâ€™ compensation and other public disability benefits may reduce your Social Security benefits. Workersâ€™ compensation benefits are paid to a worker because of a job-related injury or illness. They may be paid by federal or state workersâ€™ compensation agencies, employers or by insurance companies on behalf of employers.
