How much can you get in Supplemental Security Income?

If you're interested in obtaining Supplemental Security Income (SSI) along with your current Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, you may be interested in how much they pay out presently. Like with Social Security benefits, the maximum federal SSI also increases when there is inflation of the dollar in the United States.

In 2018, the increase was 2 percent in inflation, which means the previous year's amount is no longer accurate or what you'd receive if you applied for SSI. In 2018, the annual maximum a single eligible individual may receive is $9,007.46. Monthly, it works out to $750.

For couples who are eligible, the limit has raised to $13,509.70. Monthly, that's $1,125 for the couple. For essential persons, the annual limit is $4,514.06. Monthly, it's an additional $376.

In months where individuals have an income, the monthly amount received from SSI is reduced by the countable income. If there is an eligible spouse as well, then the amount payable is divided between both spouses instead of against an individual.

It can be difficult to live on only SSD, which is why SSI is such a necessity for many people. If you have questions about how to apply or would like to work through a denial to have it appealed, it's in your interests to do so with someone familiar with the process. If you're already approved for SSD, it should be easier to obtain the SSI you want. You may need to obtain updated paperwork for your application, but it is relatively straightforward when you apply.
