Beneficiaries with disabilities may be entitled to 2 different types Social security benefits. So it will depend on whether you get Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).

Some Americans may be eligible for both at the same time. Remember to get SSDI you must meet the strict definition of impairment determined by the Administration, have worked and paid sufficient taxes to SSA.

Therefore, SSDI it’s not for anyone who just happens to have a qualification impairment. Paying enough payroll taxes is essential. That’s why it’s so important to make sure your employer pays the right amount of taxes. If you notice any errors, you can report them to have them corrected after checking your annual report.


The Social Security Administration will increase SSDI benefits by 3.2%. Then payments will increase by about $48 on average. This means that people on SSDI will receive a total of about $576 in just one year.

If you just get SSI (Supplemental Security Income) or SSDI at the same time, you will also receive a 3.2% increase. Millions of Americans will receive 3.2% more per month, regardless of their Social Security benefits.

For example, if you are on SSI because you have qualifying disability, you’ll get up to $29 more per month. This equates to 348 dollars after 12 months. Undoubtedly, if you get SSI and SSDI, you will receive much more each month.

A single person on SSI can only get up to $943 in 2024. Principals get up to $472 in 2024, and married couples get up to $1,415. So, depending on your personal situation, you may receive one or the other amount.

FYI, to get a bigger Social Security payment, you have to aim high. In fact, your goal should be to earn that much money as much as possible. Those who earn the taxable maximum over 35 years and file late could receive up to $3,822 in 2024, up from $3,627 in 2023.
