If the benefits you receive are Social Security Disability Insurance benefits, the pension payment would not affect your monthly benefits.

If the disability benefits you receive are for Supplemental Security Income (SSI), the pension payment must be reported to SSA and will affect your monthly benefit.  For how long depends on the size of the lump sum benefit.

Social Security Disability
If you're suffering from a disability that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to benefits under Social Security disability insurance (SSD or SSDI). Social Security disability attorneys can work with you to file your application for benefits. Because the Social Security Administration routinely denies the majority of initial claims, your SSD lawyers can also prepare for your hearing before an administrative law judge, attend all hearings, advocate on your behalf and file an appeal if your application has been denied. Hire an SSDI law firm as soon as you need to apply for SSDI. The faster your application is approved, the more quickly you will begin to receive benefits.
