Can I collect SSD and disability benefits from a private insurer?

As valuable as Social Security disability benefits are to people who receive them, it's important to point out that these payments alone may not be enough to cover monthly expenses. Because this is often the case, people with disabilities must find alternate ways of maximizing their income. For some it may mean returning to work while for others it may mean looking into collecting other forms of disability benefits.

As we have said before on this blog, filing for Social Security disability benefits is no easy endeavor. There is a lot of information you need to input and access to medical records that document the extent of your condition. Missing even one piece of information or making one small mistake could mean the difference between receiving benefits the first time you file and needing to appeal your claim later on.
