Some disabled persons may also be eligible for other types of government benefits; when this happens, it can affect the amount of social security disability benefits you receive. Some examples of other benefits include worker's compensation, black lung or disability payments from certain local, state, and federal government, military or civil service programs. In most cases, the total combined payments to you and your family from social security and any of these other programs cannot be more than 80 percent of your average salary before you were disabled. However, there may be some exceptions. If you will be receiving more than one type of disability payment, contact the social security office. They can help you determine if these payments will reduce the amount of social security disability you can receive.
