Customer Question
Hello, I am in need...
Hello, I am in need of assistance with questions relating to social security. First, my husband has been approved for disability benefits through the state. He has also been receiving LTD disability benefits through his employer's insurance company (my husband has since retired). Here are my questions:
1) The state disability program has given my husband a lump sum for the back payments. My husband's LTD insurance company is now asking for all of the disability benefits paid to my husband since he has been approved for the state disability benefits. Do we have to return the money to the LTD insurance company? If so, do we have to return it as a lump sum or can we work out an alternate payment plan?
2) The LTD disability insurance company has calculated a new amount for their disability benefits. The total of the new LTD insurance benefits plus the state disability benefits amount is less than what my husband was receiving before he was approved for disability. Is the LTD disability allowed to reduce their benefits paid to that extent? I thought that they would only be able to reduce their disability payment amount by the social security amount paid to my husband.
3) My husband is using all of his disability amount towards health insurance for our family (we have two children and I am self employed with very little income). Do we have any options for supplemental disability income?
4) My husband is now qualified for Medicare because of his disability. Is there any way that he can add me and my two children to his Medicare policy that we are covered for health insurance?
