These days there are two important ones disability benefits in United States. The one that can provide you with greater benefits is Social Security Disability Insurance or SSDI.
In some cases, many workers do not meet the requirements SSDI. Because of this, they usually apply for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSI payments mean lower disability benefits.
some SSDI beneficiaries receive both disability benefits because they have very low incomes. In this way, Social Security helps them. Otherwise, they will have to face food insecurity among other difficulties.
WHEN WILL DISABILITY BENEFITS ARRIVE THIS WEEK?
If you just qualify for SSIyou will receive your payment on February 1, 2024. Regardless of your age, disability, or date of birth, your check will be in your bank account on the first day of the month.
Don't worry if your payment is delayed. Sometimes banks or financial institutions may take longer to process payments for various reasons.
Contact your bank if you think it has been delayed, but allow 3 days for posting before calling Social Security. The next one disability benefits will be due on February 2nd. So eligible recipients will get theirs SSDI checking the second.
To receive SSDI on February 2, you must have received Social Security before May 1997. If not, you can only receive it if you qualify for both SSDI and SSI payments.
SSDI AND SSI AMOUNTS FOR FEBRUARY 1 AND 2
The maximum amounts for SSDI payments in 2024 are $3,822. However, very few workers manage to achieve it.
It is so challenging because they must have earned the taxable maximum for 35 years. First-time filers also will not receive this SSDI amount because they will receive a reduction in their benefits.
So filing late is the only opportunity to get the biggest amount. SSI offers the lowest disability benefits amounts. Married couples can reach 1455 dollarssingles to $943 and principals $478.
Disability benefits also have average payouts and may be more realistic. For SSDI, the average check is 1537 dollars and SSI average payments are worth it $674 in 2024. Apply for both if you have a disability that prevents you from working so you can get money monthly.
