If I win my Social Security Disability claim, how much money benefits will I receive?

The amount of your monthly Social Security Disability Insurance benefit depends on how long you’ve been disabled and how much you have paid into Social Security over your working life.  The monthly Supplemental Security Income benefits are $733.00 for an individual and $1,100.00 for a couple.

The average monthly benefit for disabled men is just over $1,200.00 and the average monthly benefit for disabled women is just over $1,000.00.

Part of your disability award will include back pay or all the money you should have been receiving while you were going through the claims process beginning the date it is determined that you became disabled or the date of your initial application, depending on the type of benefit for which you have applied.
