MyVirtualCPA :

I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to help you better understand your options.

MyVirtualCPA :

You are fine...you can draw social security disability along with a private disability benefit from your former employer

MyVirtualCPA :

Your private disability does not count as earnings to go against your earnings limit

Customer:

Are you absolutely sure I don't have to report anything to social security/?even thought the booklet states you must "tell us if you receive another disability benefit"? Thank you
