How much Social Security will I get?

  • Your "back-pay" depends on many things
  • Disability Insurance Benefits (DIB): To be eligible for DIB, you must have earned enough "credits." The credits are based on how long you worked and how recently you worked. We will be happy to give you the specifics. If you have not worked in the past 6 years you may not be eligible for DIB, but you may still qualify for SSI benefits!
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI): To be eligible for SSI, your income must be below the amount set by Social Security. Your eligibility for SSI is based on your household income, assets, and the number of dependants living in your household. The U.S. Congress sets limits on SSI pay for individuals and couples.
