It depends. Taking your pension may or may not reduce your monthly long-term disability payment.
If you are found to be disabled, your insurance company will award you a monthly disability payment. The payment is based on a percentage of your pre-disability monthly earnings, typically around 60% of your prior salary. However, most long-term disability policies contain offsets, or reductions, for other income received.
The long-term disability policy will define other income and what amounts can be reduced from your monthly payment. Typically, this includes social security disability payments (SSDI), worker’s compensation benefits, personal injury settlements, and sometimes retirement benefits.
Our experienced disability attorneys can advise you on whether your pension is considered an offset and any consequences associated with taking such a pension.
