How are Social Security disability payments calculated?

Social Security Disability benefits are based on your earnings from your job. SSDI benefits are calculated by using the sum of:

  • 90% of the first $1,115 of your average indexed monthly earnings, plus
  • 32% of your average indexed monthly earnings over $1,115 and through $6,721, plus
  • 15% of your average indexed monthly earnings over $6,721.

This SSDI calculator assumes you became disabled in 2023.

Who qualifies for Social Security Disability benefits?

Individuals must typically be making less than $1,350/month to qualify for SSDI benefits. Individuals must also be unable to work full-time, be out of work for at least 12 months, and have worked at least 5 of the last 10 years.

What are the chances I will receive Social Security Disability benefits?
