SSDI: February 2024 Disability Benefit Payments

The Social Security Administration (SSA) has announced that there will be 4 different SSDI checks in February 2024. Only those who have submitted and received approval may be eligible for payments.

Remember that having a qualification impairment it is important that you continue to receive SSDI benefits. What's more, if you have a new disability and haven't yet filed for Social Security Disability Insurance, make sure you've worked at jobs covered by the SSA.

If you've worked for many years but paid no payroll taxes, you won't be eligible for either Social Security or retirement SSDI benefits. Let's take a look at the February pay days and possible amounts.


Social security for disability payments will be due on February 2 for some beneficiaries. If you received disability benefits before May 1997, you will be eligible for a check on February 2nd. But there is another way to qualify for this payment.

If your SSDI payments are too low, better apply for SSI and plan your monthly expenses to get the most out of your money

Some Social Security Disability recipients may receive a check on February 2 if they have Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). So those are the two options to get that payment.

After February 2nd SSDI verification, there will be three more days to pay. However, it will take about 12 days to receive another one. Social Security has informed beneficiaries that the last three checks will be due on February 14th, 21st and 28th.

To receive the payments on February 14, 21, and 28, SSA will check your birthdays. If they are from 1-10, you will get yours money on the 14th. Those whose birth dates are 11-20 will receive their money on the 21st. Unless your birthday is between the 21st and 31st, you cannot get February 28th SSDI checking. If you also receive SSI, you will receive it on February 1st.


The amount of Social Security Disability Insurance checks may be different for each beneficiary. This will depend on your previous wages, the age you filed, the number of years you worked, and how much you paid to the SSA.

However, it is possible to know the average amounts for these disability benefits. According to Social Security, the average SSDI verification in 2024 is about $1,537 after the 2024 COLA increase.

The biggest benefit for SSDI recipients is up to $3,822, but not many workers can achieve that. They must have earned the taxable maximum ($160,200 in 2023) for 35 years and file late.

Note that these average payments may be higher if your spouse or children qualify SSDI on your record. If you don't know if you've earned enough Social Security credits to get benefits, check your annual statement online.
