Disability insurance providers will usually reserve the right to offset Social Security and other benefits -- such as workers' compensation -- that you receive. This means the amount you receive from other sources will be subtracted from the amount you should have received according to the policy.
That usually means SSDI will be taken into account, but not retirement benefits, assuming the terms of the private disability policy will pay if you are retired.
