Due to sickness or injury, you are no longer able to work in your occupation. The insurance company has found you disabled. So, you are eligible to collect a monthly disability payment.
How Much Will I Receive in Monthly Disability Payments?
It depends on your specific long-term disability policy. People are typically entitled to a percentage (usually 50 % or 60%) of their prior earnings. This amount can be reduced for any other income received by the individual, including social security benefits, workers compensation benefits, or any income received from part-time work.
How Does the Insurance Company Calculate Pre-Disability Earnings?
Again, it depends on the long-term disability policy. The policy will specify how the insurance companies calculate pre-disability earnings. These earnings will include wages and salary. However, it may or may not include bonuses, commissions, etc.
Our experienced disability lawyers can review the policy and discuss with you how your pre-disability earnings will be calculated.
