A recent federal court ruling, Songer v. Reliance Std. Life Ins. Co., 2015 WL 2098126 (W.D. Pa. May 5, 2015), examined offsets of "other income benefits" such as Social Security disability payments. Since the insured's income exceeded the the maximum insured amount, his benefit was capped at an amount substantially less than the typical insured benefit of 60% of pre-disability income. The question before the court was whether the offset of Social Security benefits should be taken from the benefit amount payable or from 60% of the insured pre-disability income.
