How Much In Social Security Benefits Can I Get?

May 01 2018

When you cannot work, it often means having to make hard choices when it comes to making ends meet. It is no wonder why someone who cannot work because of a disability wonders how much he or she could actually receive in Social Security Disability benefits.

In the Denver area, turn to our lawyers at Alverson + O’Brien for answers for all your questions related to Social Security Disability benefits. Our attorneys have helped countless people successfully navigate the often-complex process of claiming SSD benefits, and they can do the same for you. They can help you secure every dollar you are eligible for.

How Much Will I Be Able To Receive?

The easy answer to that question is: it depends. Social Security Disability benefits are awarded based on your work history. How long you worked and how much you paid into the Social Security Disability system will have a large effect on how much you receive each month.

In many cases, the amount could be more than $1,000 a month in benefits. This could help you pay your bills, put food on the table and keep a roof over your head. Relieving these financial pressures could give you the time you need to focus on your health.

If you only qualify for Supplemental Security Income, you will receive the same amount as all other recipients. If you qualify for both SSD and SSI benefits, however, the amounts will likely change.
