Having private disability insurance does not affect eligibility for Social Security disability benefits.
Being eligible for receiving disability payments from a private insure does not affect Social Security benefits, but workers’ compensation and other public payments are taken into account. Also, private insurance disability payments will be considered as income for the purposes of calculating Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments, in case the recipient is eligible for both.
