How much can you expect to get if approved for SSDI?

Intended to help Mississippi residents with serious disabilities support themselves when unable to work, Social Security Disability Insurance is an assistance program that you may be able to utilize as a disabled person, provided you qualify. Just how much money you can expect to receive in SSDI payments will ultimately depend on certain factors, but there are some areas you can examine to get a better idea of how much you might expect to receive with each payment.

Per the Motley Fool, before you can figure out how much you might get in monthly SSDI payments, you will first need to determine whether you qualify for them. To qualify, you will first need to demonstrate how your condition meets the U.S. Social Security Administration’s highly specific definition of “disability.” Then, you will need to prove that you worked long enough in a Social Security-covered job to qualify for benefits.

If you are able to qualify for SSDI benefits, whether on your first try or through an appeal, you may have questions about how much you can expect to receive so you can create a budget accordingly. SSDI benefits are not unlike retirement benefits in that your average Social Security-taxed earnings will play a role in determining how much you will ultimately get.

Looking at your most recent Social Security statement is one way you can get a rough idea of how much you may receive in benefits assistance. However, most people who the administration approves will get a little bit less money in their monthly SSDI payments than they would, had they worked up until they reached retirement age.
