How Is Disability Income Determined

How Much Disability Income Will I Receive?

Social Security disability income is money paid to previously working individuals who can no longer work due to disabilities. The first step toward receiving disability income is to submit your Disability Insurance Benefits application. If your first application is denied (approximately 63 percent are), you will have several opportunities to appeal your disability claim.

Your eligibility for disability income is based on:

• Whether you are currently working;
• The extent of your medical condition;
• If your impairment meets Social Security’s List of Impairments;
• Whether you can return to your previous work; and
• Whether you can do another type of substantial work.

If your disability claim is approved, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will then determine the amount of disability income and medical benefits you are eligible for.

How Much Disability Income Will I Receive?

A Social Security disability advocate or lawyer can help estimate the value of your disability claim. Depending on the specifics of your case, you may be receive disability income of over $2,000 per month, with the average being just over $1,000 monthly. The SSA will determine your disability income based upon your average lifetime earnings, and whether you are receiving other disability compensation.

If you are approved for disability income, you may receive a lump-sum payment for the amount of time that has passed since your entitlement, or disability onset date. SSA also requires a waiting period of five consecutive months before you receive your first payment,
