If I have a disability rating of a certain percentage, say 18% or 25% or whatever, what the heck does that mean?? I'm still working full time. So, anyone have any knowlege about this? I will be scheduling surgery on my left hand and wrist in March, so I'm sure my disability rating will change. They gave me some number after the surgery on my right hand 2 years ago. I'm just not sure what that means in terms of employment? taxes? anything? This is important since I will be looking for a new job this summer after I move. Thanks, Beth.
