Pre Injury Wages
Do any of the attorneys on here now the formul used by SSDI to determine a persons pre injury average wage. They would use this
formula to determine wc offsets. Since you can only cap out at 80%.

I think I read their is 3 different ways to figure it, and they use the higher of the 3 for determining the cap.

1. prior months income
2. previous 5 years income prior to DOI including the month of DOI. THen average out per month
3. Highest 10 years income . Then average out per month
Then they use the higher of the 3, and figure the 80% cap from this number.

Does anyone know if I am correct on my formulas???? Will SS provide me with how much the amount is and which method they used to come up with the numbers???

you should be able to find the different formulae here:
