Hi, can someone advise me.
I'm referring to SSA Pub. No. 05-10018, dated Jan. 2004.
Workers' Comp MAY Affect SSDI
I was treated rudely at the SSA office in the city I live. Went to another neighboring city. They're not rude, but don't have answers; regarding SSDI overpayments/offsets as related to WC.
They give an example of the 80-20 rule in the publication. They use your *average earnings* before you became disable.
After the example; they say, "how we determine* your average earnings*??
They say, **they use different formulas to calculate average earnings** which formula we use depends on you specific circumstances. Contact SSA for the information...??
I have NOT been able to get the answer, what is wrong w/SSA, why do they provide the info, every person I've asked, does not know??
I have a huge overpayment, and I don't know this important info, my *average earnings figure*.
Average Earnings... does anyone know the formulas that can be used by SSA, I want to know what figure they're using on my claim.
Thanks so much,
