How Much Does Social Security Disability Pay Each Month?

How much a person gets if they are approved for Social Security Disability (SSDI) depends on how much earnings they reported on their taxes in the years before they became disabled.  People that earn more pay more taxes; and the more you earn, the higher your SSDI benefit.  The average monthly Social Security disability payment to a disabled worker is approximately $1,100 in 2012.  For a disabled worker with a spouse and one child, SSA states that the average is approximately $1,900 per month.  Now, you can find out how much yHow Much Will I Get If I Get Social Security Disability?our monthly SSDI will be online.  On May 1, 2012, Social Security announced that you can access your benefit and earnings information on their website.  You can also find out how much your Old Age benefit will be from Social Security when you retire.

You may remember the old the 11 x 17 Earnings Statement with green trim showing up in your mailbox once a year.  It was folded in half to show 4 pages of information about your Social Security account. Well, that got too expensive, and in  March of 2011, the Social Security Administration (SSA) stopped mailing those to save money.

Now, you can go online and get the same information.  Above, you will see a picture of Social Security’s homepage, https://ssa.gov/.  Go to that page, and click on the area circled above, titled “NEW Get Your Social Security Statement online.”  That will take you to a page that looks like this:

    How can any one live on 1000-1500 a month . paying your house is out the door ..what rent ..is that all that the government is willing to do for us, even that is in poverty add up the bills…we are left with nothing!!!

    Social Security is not intended to be your sole source of income. You should have done whatever you needed to do to live within your income, saving money for rainy days and retirement.

    That is true for retirement, but keep in mind that many people become disabled well before retirement age. In those cases, they may have been trying to save for a rainy day, but then had to live for 2+ years waiting for Social Security to approve their disability claim – and using up their savings in the process.
