  1. Note: The simulation is based on information from 2,273 individuals in the treatment and control group who participated in the survey and have non-missing information on wages and benefit payments. Individuals who had never worked before DI entry were excluded because wage predictions are based on work history prior to DI entry. RTW: Return-to-work. RTW also includes individuals who are already working, but extend their work hours. Details on the simulation can be found in the Additional file 1 to this paper
