When you or your loved one suffer from a disability, getting the assistance you need can make a world of difference for you and your family. To get the full measure of benefits, though, is not easy. It takes not only proving your eligibility, but making sure your benefits are calculated correctly and paying out at the maximum rate allowed in your particular circumstances. This means understanding complicated formulas and concepts, like the primary insurance amount.
If this sounds confusing, that is because it is. The Social Security Administration does admirable work administering a variety of disability and retirement benefits, but it is a large, federal agency governed by extremely complex laws, regulations, and limitations. If you are like most people, dealing with the bureaucracy of the SSA can seem daunting—even impossible. But you do not have to face the SSA alone.
