Can income sources reduce Social Security disability benefits?

When you cannot hold a job in Kentucky because of a disability, you rely on certain income sources to keep you afloat financially. Some of these are independent and not affected by other income sources, but some may be reduced based on the combined total. In the case of Social Security disability benefits, whether the amount is lowered depends on the particular source of income.

Key information about Social Security disability benefits

When people in Kentucky earn income from a job, they pay Social Security taxes. According to FindLaw, if people become disabled, the money that they paid into this system makes them eligible for benefits based on the contributions they made. The more taxes a person paid into the system, the higher the amount of benefits he or she will qualify to receive.
