SBeth Posted November 22, 2004 Share Posted November 22, 2004 Bill & I have been very fortunate in that he was able to collect 100% of his full pay for the first six months since his diagnosis as he has been on short term disability since Memorial Day 2004. As of Dec 5, 2004 he will begin on long term disabilty thru his employer and will be collecting 66% of his full pay. We received a letter from the long term carrier today telling us what his monthly payment will be and it does not indicate if that amount is pre-tax or if there will be any tax deductions on that amount. Does anyone know how that works? Also, we have had several people tell us that he should apply for social security disability; but how can he collect SSD when he is receiving long term disability? A neighbor, who is a 4 year survivor of cancer, says that the SSD benefit will supplement the long term disability income. Anyone have any experience or information regarding these issues? Thanks in advance for any help! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
