How Much Can You Get? The amount of Social Security disability benefits is different for SSDI (disabled workers) and SSI (low income individuals).  You can ask SSA to estimate your potential payments, but to get an idea of how much you might qualify for, here are estimated amounts paid in 2016: Disabled worker (SSDI):  $1,166 per month Low income disabled (SSI):  $733 per month If you are found disabled under SSDI, payments start the sixth full month after the date you were found disabled.  For SSI, benefits begin the month after the month you qualify.  Benefits for SSI generally are less.    You may be eligible for back pay from the date you were found disabled. For example, if found disabled beginning August 1, 2018, you would receive a lump sum covering the period from that date to the present.  You automatically get Medicare coverage after receiving disability benefits for two years.
