social security disability

Normally a recipient of social security disability benefits may also receive benefits through a private policy at the same time. Recipients of SSDI will likely lose their eligibility for such benefits though since SSDI is based on need and other income will be included in determining the recipients eligibility for such benefits.

The private policy may reduce the benefits payable where the beneficiary has other sources of income, but it is not typically unlaw for a disabled person to receive both types of benefits.
