Even an experienced and knowledgeable Social Security Disability lawyer can be challenged when facing a question as fundamental as, "How are Social Security Disability amounts determined in New York?" The answer to how benefit amounts are determined is complex. A complicated mathematical formula is applied to the amount of your earnings when you were working.
Reporting all your earnings is especially important if you wish to maximize your Social Security Disability benefits. Did you neglect to report some self-employment income in recent years? Talk to an attorney about whether you still have time to file amended tax returns and should do so before filing for Social Security Disability benefits.
If you are suddenly dealing with disability brought about by injury or the onset of a condition such as multiple sclerosis, you no doubt have many worries, concerns and practical challenges. Thinking through all key factors in your case, such as whether your recent income tax returns were complete, can seem like an overwhelming ordeal at this time. Having an experienced attorney guide you through the process of applying and/or appealing can help ensure that you ask the right questions and take all steps that you can to improve your prospects for the relief that you seek.
