The amount that you receive each month in SSDI benefits depends on several factors, but the most important one is your earnings record. SSDI benefits are determined based on your earnings over the course of your lifetime. The more money that you earned and paid Social Security taxes on, the more you will receive in SSDI benefits, which is why it is essential to have a knowledgeable disability lawyer look over your earnings record to make certain that it accurately reflects what you earned.
Getting the benefits that you worked hard to earn should be simple, but the process is made difficult by often-confusing regulations and complicated procedures.
