Posted by John Kuhnlein | Mar 29, 2018 | 0 Comments

If you don't want to set up an account with Social Security, you can still get a rough estimate of what your monthly disability benefits would be.  While this is helpful for planning purposes, you are far better off if you do set up an account with Social Security.  Such

Do The Numbers Add Up?

an account will give you access to all sort of information in addition to potential disability benefits.

In the meantime, try this calculator available from the Washington Post:

How Much Would I Get In Disability Benefits?

One clever feature of this calculator shows you how much you make now versus what Social Security would pay for disability benefits.  The contrast between the numbers can be startling. Seeing how much less Social Security disability pays might prompt some would-be applicants to stay on the job.

About the Author

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
