Social Security Disability Offset for Long-Term Disability
Maryland Social Security Disability Attorney
Understanding your long-term disability insurance benefits is important
to protecting your future and to remaining financially secure and viable.
An important clause in many long-term disability (LTD) policies involves
the offsetting of your benefits based on other income sources. In almost
every case, Social Security disability benefit payments are considered
a form of outside income. Offsetting means that your insurance carrier
would be able to reduce the amount of your long-term benefits by the amount
you are receiving from the Social Security Administration (SSA).
Why does offsetting matter?
It often takes up to two years to receive approval for Social Security
disability benefits. When the Social Security Administration approves
your claim and you finally begin receiving your benefits from the SSA,
you may have to repay all of your back benefits to your insurance carrier.
This could amount to thousands of dollars in refunds to your insurance
company. If you aren't aware of this policy, you could be in for an
unpleasant surprise. Failure to pay your insurance carrier what you owe
could result in the cancellation of your long-term disability payments.
