Will Benefits Replace the Work-Related Income I Lost?
Social Security Disability benefits are a safety net established by the federal government for disabled individuals and their families. Social Security Disability benefits are designed to provide financial support to meet living expenses when a worker becomes disabled and unable to work and support themselves or a family.
Your social security disability benefits can be a considerable amount; but it may or may not replace the exact amount of monthly income to which you are accustomed. Your prior earnings before disablement may have been significantly higher.
