Errors in SSDI Benefits Calculations
Posted on behalf of Phillips Disability, P.C. on Aug 14, 2015 in Appeals
Did you know you should be checking your estimated Social Security benefits occasionally?
It is critical that you make sure the Social Security Administration is providing you with all of the benefits to which you are entitled each month. When mistakes occur this can lead to incorrect Social Security payments.

If you think your earnings record is correct, but Social Security calculated your benefit incorrectly, you can request what Social Security calls a "recomputation" of your benefit.
The Social Security Administration will run a Benefit Statement on request for anyone with a Social Security number. The report details your annual earnings, as reported to Social Security by the IRS, over your lifetime.
However if you think a mistake was made, documentation will help your case. This means you will need to locate tax forms, W-2 forms or pay stubs which can substantiate your claim.
If you are unable to locate these documents, you are encouraged to do the following:
- Write down your Social Security number
- List your employer including address
- List the dates you were employed
- List how much you earned
Agency officials investigate your concerns using this information.
Applying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) may feel like an overwhelming task. The SSDI application process requires a great deal of paperwork, in addition to the time and effort it takes to gather the medical and administrative documents you will need to substantiate your claim.
