I do not believe you must report this.

No not a car accident, but if you went to Vegas and hit the jackpot more than 1000.01 then you have to report it.

You don't have the right to be paid twice for the same thing. Disability only coverage your wages and for a specific time. You settlement covers wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. Your company that has paid for your disability would be entitled to money paid back or you would be double indemnified. You may to give up some of your settlement but by no means the whole thing depending on how it was broken down. Good Luck. Talk to your agent or company that covers your Disability

If the accident settlement includes lost past, current, or future wages for which you have or will be receiving disability or SSDI benefits, yes.

If not, no.

SSI is a supplementary income. There are specific requirements to reporting income. If you don't report this, and they find out about it, you could be subject to fines, or worse.
