Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits provide financial assistance to million of Americans not able to work due to a physical or mental disability. After completing your Social Security disability application, you may want to find out how much does the SSA pay per month for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

In summary, SSDI payments are based on the average lifetime earnings prior to an individuals disability and for SSI, payments are based on financial need. In 2020, the SSDI monthly benefits range from $100 to $3,011, and the SSI base amount is $783.

Read on to learn more on how much SSD pays and what factors may affect your benefits.

How Much You Can Expect From Your SSDI Payment

One of the top questions about SSDI benefits is how the benefits are calculated and how much individuals will receive every month. SSDI is funded by Social Security tax, so how much you’re awarded monthly will be based on your average lifetime earnings before the disability.

Your monthly payments will not be based on how severe your disability. The Social Security Administration (SSA) has a formula to calculate and determine the amount you will be paid for your disability benefit.

Most SSDI recipients receive between $800 and $1,800 per month, but those with a previous high income in recent years can receive up to $3,011. In 2020, the average SSDI benefit amount was $1,259 per month.

What Can Affect My SSDI Monthly Disability Pay

Your SSDI monthly payment may be affected if you get disability payments from other sources. You cannot receive more than 80% of the average amount you earned before you became disabled.

If you receive government-regulated disability benefits, such as workers’ comp benefits or temporary state disability benefits, they can affect your SSDI benefits. Receiving disability benefits from a private long-term disability insurance policy, SSI, and VA benefits will not reduce your SSDI benefit.

How Much Monthly Pay To Expect From SSI

Because SSI pays benefits to those with limited income and resources and not based on work history, in 2020, qualified applicants are eligible for the same amount, $783. In the case of an eligible individual with an eligible spouse, the amount payable is $1,175 and is divided equally between the two spouses.

Not all SSI recipients get the maximum amount. Your monthly SSI disability check will differ because of individual factors. For example, countable income, marital state, living arrangements, and the state you live in.
