Social Security Disability Benefits

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

This article will provide some basic information regarding Social Security disability benefits. Claimants may receive benefits under Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

If approved for SSDI benefits the amount an individual receives depends on how much the claimant has worked and earned in the past; for disabled widow’s and widower’s benefits the amount depends on how much the late spouse worked and earned in the past; for disabled adult child benefits the amount depends on how much the parent worked and earned in the past.

The benefits are fairly modest as the average SSDI benefit for a claimant is about $1,148 per month and for a family about $1,943 per month in 2014.

If approved for SSI benefits the maximum benefit is $721 per month in 2014 less any other income or if living with someone who does not charge rent. The average SSI benefit is about $509 per month for an individual.
