IF I RECEIVE SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY BENEFITS WILL MY UNION PENSION BE AFFECTED IN ANY WAY?
It depends on whether it’s a private pension or a public one. Private pensions will not affect your social security disability benefits, but public ones may. The Social Security Administration has made it very clear that disability payments from private sources, such as a private pension or insurance benefits, will not affect your social security disability benefits. If you still have questions about your personal situation, please call us for a FREE consultation or, if you’d prefer, you may contact the Social Security Administration directly toll-free at 1-800-772-1213.
