    Have you looked at the Social Security web page?

    http://www.socialsecurity.gov/

    Also, the government sends out a notice to you 3 months prior to your birthday with all your social security information detailed in it, including what you would receive monthly if you were awarded disability,

    I know you have to jump through hoops to even file the first time, let alone go through a review process. But it is worth it in the end.
