How Condition Affects Social Security Disability Benefits

Your condition does not affect the amount of Social Security disability benefits you receive. Social Security disability is not based on your disability and overall health condition. Social Security disability is based on the amount you earned in your lifetime before you were affected by your disability. You may contact a Social Security disability lawyer, who is very knowledgeable about social security law for more information about your specific case.

Example:
Jane receives Social Security disability. Recently, her condition has worsened and she has other health problems. Although Jane’s condition has gotten worse, her monthly disability amount cannot be increased. Jane’s Social Security disability amount is based on her lifetime earnings before her disability. Jane can contact a social security disability lawyer who is knowledgeable about social security law if she has questions about her social security disability benefits.
