How much could your Social Security Disability payments be?

Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are for individuals who can no longer work due to disabling medical or mental conditions. The purpose of SSD benefits is to help those individuals, supplement their income because they can no longer receive income as before. How much you receive in SSD benefits depends on many different factors, and the whole process can be complicated and length.

How Much Can I Receive in SSD Benefits?

The amount of SSD benefits received varies from person to person. SSD benefits payments are made monthly based on your age and average lifetime earnings.

Typically, the more you earned before you became unable to work, the more benefits you will receive (though there is a maximum limit). There is no guarantee that anyone will receive disability benefits or how much you will receive if your condition is considered disabling. Every January the Social Security Administration (the federal agency that handles SSD applications) adjusts the amount you can receive based on the cost of living in the United States. This is done to account for inflation and increases in living costs such as food, housing, and medical care.


If you qualify to receive disability benefits, you may actually receive disability back pay by the time your application is approved.

The application process can be lengthy and sometimes take up to a year or more. If you are approved to receive benefits, the Social Security Administration will have determined when your “onset” date was: meaning the date the Social Security Administration qualified your condition as a disability. You can receive back pay benefits for the months between your application and your approval. The amount of back pay benefits depends upon your monthly benefits amount.
