Someone Please Help!! Kalila Winston worked for a software company for 26 years. She became permanently disabled and could no longer keep her job. She was 52 years old and had planned to work until she was 62. Her final annual salary was $43,000. Her rate of benefits is 2%. What is Kalila’s monthly disability benefit to the nearest dollar? Can't seem to get it right my answer was $30,960 but its still incorrect please explain. I Got this: 2% of 43,000 = .02(43,000) = 860 per year divide by 12 to get per month 860/12 = 71.666 rounds to 72
