Congress chose numerous years back that if a laborer got the two specialists' pay and Social Security Disability simultaneously this would be a "twofold installment" of advantages. Laborers remuneration in Virginia pays a harmed specialist 66% (2/3) of his normal week after week pay when he is out because of damage or malady. Standardized savings then again pays the crippled specialist an advantage dependent on his/her lifetime profit.
