Piper wrote ...Hi Piper, It sounds like you are on SSDI. How did they calculate how much money you get? I'm waiting for my telephone interview, Beth Sufian is helping me. I'm sure she'll explain it but I thought I'd ask. Thanks! Kristen
when you qualify for medicare through SSDI, you'll receive 2 parts: part a (for inpatient stuff) and part b (typically covers drugs, etc, dispensed at home). some people purchase a part d (supplemental) plan for additional prescription drug coverage. each state has different part d plans available for purchase, and what they cover varies. typically with medicare copayments are low or even non-existent, although there is a 20% patient liability for certain services. you should contact CF legal hotline for more info if you're questioning what should and should not be covered under your medicare policy.
Its calculated based on how long you worked and earned credits. For example, I get more with my SSDI than my mom's boyfriend does because I worked on the books since I was 18 whereas he didn't work for a long period of time.

|You also should receive an annual statement that says how much your SSDI will be, should you become disabled. If you threw that statement away and you already applied for SSDI, you will not get another one. I don't know what time of year they come, I've been on SSDI for 9 years. It does matter how much you've worked in the past 5 years (I think?). And how much you were paid during those years. It's some formula with number of years worked equals some number of credits, which qualifies you, but then your amount is based on your salary. (how much you paid in.) It's nowhere near your monthly salary, but I think you get the idea.|
