How Much Money Can I Receive, and When Will I Receive It?

If your SSDI disability benefits claim is approved, the amount of benefits that you receive will be based on your average lifetime earnings, and possibly other factors, such as your age and the actual amount of Social Security taxes that you paid. As a result, it’s difficult to know in advance what that amount will be.

Your first Social Security monthly disability benefits will be paid beginning with the sixth month after the date that your disability began. That is, no benefits will be paid for the first five months of your disability. Also, benefits won’t be paid for any period that is more than one year before you applied for benefits. Therefore, if you wait too long after you become disabled before you apply, you risk losing benefits.

For SSI benefits, the government sets a maximum monthly amount that individuals and couples can receive. From that amount, Social Security subtracts your other monthly income to determine your final monthly benefit. Some types of monthly income count, including help with rent and food, while others don’t.

In order to receive the maximum benefits to which you’re entitled, it’s important to get your benefits claim started as soon as possible after you become disabled. The professionals at Jackson & MacNichol stand ready to help you, whether it’s preparing your new benefits claim or representing you on an existing claim. We can help estimate the amount of benefits that you might receive when your claim is approved.
