social Security has to do with age and disability.. If your at minimum 62 you can file for S.S. without worrying about how much your bringing home.. It will depend on how much you make a year as to how much s.s.i. you can keep.. Also, if your spouse died and worked approx. ten years then at 60 you can collect survivor's insurance without concerning yourself as to how much you personally make.. .

Go ahead, make my question.

Yes, your severance pay is different from any social security disability benefits you may receive as this is often based on your accumulated work credits.

 

However, if you're applying for disability benefits under SSI or Supplemental Security Income, the amount you're receiving as part of your severance pay may affect your claim or may even result to it getting rejected.

Can you receive (non-government) pension and social security disability

It would make sense that you could collect both because one is private and the other is governmental but I'd suggest speaking to your local social security office to double check.
