If you are a SSDI (Title II) beneficiary receiving extra supervision from your employer and/or from a job coach because of your disability, you should determine the dollar value (per month) that this subsidy is worth.
If your employer provides extra supervision, discuss with your employer both the reason you want to claim a subsidy and the dollar value that your employer thinks the subsidy is worth. (Soon after you claim a subsidy, SSA will contact your employer. SSA will ask your employer to verify that you are receiving a subsidy and to specify the dollar value of that subsidy.)
If a job coach provides extra supervision, compute the value of that supervision as follows:
With your job coach, estimate the number of hours per month that the job coach spends on the job with you helping you to learn and/or perform your job duties. Multiply the number of hours times your gross hourly wage. That will be the value of your job coach subsidy for the month.
If you have extra supervision from both your employer and a job coach, add the two together to get your total subsidy for extra supervision.
