If you are eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, the amount you receive each month will be based on your average lifetime earnings before your disability began. It is not based on how severe your disability is or how much income you have. Most SSDI recipients receive between $800 and $1,800 per month (the average for 2020 is $1,258).
Benefit estimates depend on your date of birth and on your earnings history. Please keep in mind that this is only an estimated number. Your actual benefit amount may vary significantly.
