    I get a statement from SS telling me how much I have contributed, how much I will get if I go to retirement, and how much I will get if I become disabled.

    The last one was around $1,600 per month if I became disabled this year.

    If you contact them they should be able to provide you with an exact figure. I'm not sure if you can get this info online or not.

    I worked 50 hrs. per week for the 18 yrs. before I got SSDI, but have been on it for 17 yrs. now, and I can tell you the cost of living increases are completely eaten up by the medicare premium increases.
    At first, it replaced about 25 hrs. per week of pay. Now it only equals what I would make working about 12 hrs. per week.
    If I were not married, I'd be homeless.
