Short Term Disability Income: State Programs

Relationship To Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) And Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

« Previous


If you receive Social Security Disability Insurance("SSDI") while collecting a state disability benefit, Social Security will reduce the SSDI payment so that the two benefits together do not exceed 80% of your prior average monthly earnings.

You can also receive Supplemental Security Income ("SSI") together with state mandated short term disability income if the state income is under the monthly SSI payment.If the State plan exceeds the SSI amount in your state, you can apply for SSI while still collecting benefits but you will not receive the SSI benefits until the short term disability payments run out.

You will need to provide the Social Security Administration with a copy of your Notice of Exhaustion of Benefits to get either the SSDI or SSI payments adjusted.
