Can I get long term disability from my employer and social security disability at the same time?

You can collect long term disability and social security simultaneously, but the amount you receive from social security may be reduced. When you file for social security disability benefits, you must list all compensation you are receiving. Your eligibility is based on your income and living expenses. You will have to declare the long term disability income you are receiving, and this will be counted toward your income. Only if the social security office determines you need further assistance to pay for your basic living expenses will you be granted benefits. The amount you receive will be reduced by the amount you are receiving through your employer benefits.
