Dual Supplemental Social Security and Disability payments

A common question is whether or not you can receive both Social Security and Disability at the same time. Yes, you can receive supplemental social security and disability payments at the same time.

How Does It Work?

It is important to note that supplemental social security benefits are based on your spouse’s or parent’s work history, not yours. Therefore, if you are receiving supplemental social security benefits in addition to Social Security Disability (SSD) payments from your own work record, the total amount of both combined cannot be more than 80% of the average wage before taxes.

Additional Income

Any additional income from either supplemental social security or Social Security Disability must be reported as part of your gross income for tax purposes. Additionally, depending on how much supplemental social security and/or SSD income you are receiving, your eligibility for means-tested public benefits, such as Medicaid and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) could be affected.

Eligibility For Supplemental Security Benefits

It is also important to remember that supplemental social security benefits are only available if you are the spouse or dependent of a retired, disabled, or deceased worker. If you qualify based on these criteria and meet certain income requirements, then you may be eligible for supplemental social security payments in addition to disability payments.

Determination Of Qualification

In order to determine your eligibility and maximize your benefits, it is recommended that you contact an experienced Social Security Administration representative who can help guide you through the process. With careful planning and proper guidance, it is possible to receive supplemental social security payments while also receiving Social Security Disability payments.
