Object reference not set to an instance of an object error

I have the following code which is throwing an "object reference not set to an instance of an object error".  How can I change it to not give this exception?  The code is supposed to check for SecondaryWageAmount and if it's there, add it to PrimaryWageAmount otherwise just return PrimaryWageAmount

            decimal returnValue;
            returnValue = HasSecondary ?
                               PrimaryWageAmount + SecondaryWageAmount
                            : PrimaryWageAmount;
            return returnValue;

Actally, I figured it out.  You are right  SecondaryWageAmount was erroneously getting set to null.  Thanks for the response

Are you certain that the error is happening on this section of code? Your exception... is it indicating that the error is on these lines?
