Long Term Disability Offset Part 4

Even though the LTD carrier receives significant benefit from an award of social security disability benefits to a disabled person, there are still reasons why an award of SSD benefits is beneficial to an individual. First, unlike LTD benefits, SSD benefits are subject to cost of living adjustment increases, which can bring a substantial change over a long period of time. Also, SSD benefits are less likely going to be subject to taxation than LTD benefits received through an employer sponsored plan. Finally, two years after an individual receives social security disability benefits, he or she can become eligible for Medicare, which provides a significant safety net for vitally needed treatment.
