Frequently Asked Questions: Benefits & Qualifying

How Much Does SSDI Pay Every Month?

If you are approved for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Benefits, how much you are entitled to will depend on a number of factors including your “PIA” or Primary Insurance Amount.

Those claimants with very high past earnings can receive the maximum monthly PIA, which is $2,861 (as of January 2019). Most claimants, however, will receive a lower amount based on their past earnings, with the average PIA being $1,173 (again, as of January, 2019).

Depending on the circumstances of your claim, you may also be eligible for “back pay” and/or “retroactive benefits.”


If you can’t work because of a chronic disease or long term injury , you may qualify for SSDI or SSI benefits
