Do I Have To Pay My Social Security Disability Insurance Award To My Long Term Disability Carrier?

Posted By:

Most disability plans require you to apply for SSDI benefits so that they can reduce the amount of long term disability benefits that they have to pay.  This is because most disability plans provide that SSDI benefits are an offset to long term disability benefit payments.  If the long term disability carrier paid your full disability benefit and you receive a retroactive award of SSDI benefits, the insurance company may be entitled to a reimbursement of the overpaid long term disability benefit.  This is often the amount that you receive in retroactive SSDI benefits.  If you do not reimburse the insurance company, it may withhold your future long term disability benefits until it has recouped the entire overpayment.
