How Social Security Disability is Calculated


In this video I’m going to tell you how a Social Security disability benefit is calculated. When we're finished here, you won’t have to just take the word of the Social Security Administration, you’ll know how to do the calculation for yourself so you can double-check their numbers and be certain that your estimate is correct. And this video isn’t just for those who are disabled either. I think that anyone’s plan for retirement should always include a piece for the unexpected “what ifs” of life.  So this video is really for anyone who is planning for retirement and wants to understand how a disability benefit is calculated so you can plan your future, whatever it may hold.

Legal Terms : Pretrial Services

A function of the federal courts that takes place at the very start of the criminal justice process – after a person has been arrested and charged with a federal crime and before he or she goes to trial. Pretrial services officers focus on investigating the backgrounds of these persons to help the court determine whether to release or detain them while they await trial. The decision is based on whether these individuals are likely to flee or pose a threat to the community. If the court orders release, a pretrial services officer supervises the person in the community until he or she returns to court.

Legal Terms : Parole

The release of a prison inmate – granted by the U.S. Parole Commission – after the inmate has completed part of his or her sentence in a federal prison. When the parolee is released to the community, he or she is placed under the supervision of a U.S. probation officer.

The Sentencing Reform Act of 1984 abolished parole in favor of a determinate sentencing system in which the sentence is set by sentencing guidelines. Now, without the option of parole, the term of imprisonment the court imposes is the actual time the person spends in prison.
