How much do I get if I am disabled?

The amount you receive depends on how much you have paid in through Social Security taxes. Generally, the more a person pays in taxes, the higher their disability insurance benefit.

For the exact figure, you can request a Benefit Estimate Statement from the Social Security Administration by clicking this link.

For Disability Benefits, the benefits begin five full months after you become disabled. However, benefits cannot be paid more than one year prior to the date of the claim.
