NLW, last time I bother YOU

Yes, you are correct.....

However, note that it is presumed that you will continue to earn more over your lifetime - raises, promotion opportunities, etc. So, for example, if you can earn $400 / week now - it is commonly understood that you should be able to earn something more than $400 10 years from now. This would in turn lower the weekly benefit rate.

So the amount (for settlement purposes) would not be the full amount. When I'm measuring settlement of future wage loss, I usually aim for 50%-65% of the full value.


Thank You!

NLW, can't thank you enough...
As soon as I have more news I'll let you know.
God Bless You and Your Family.
