    It varies based on how much you money you put into the system and over what amount of time.

      this is not tough math. ssdi is based on earnings and quarters worked. simple. just like any benefit paid in to via a paycheck..my ssdi amt has grown every yr i have worked. in fact, it now exceeds my ss retirement. and, once i take ssdi (which i prob will here in next coupla yrs), should i make it to retirement age (HA!) my ssdi payment just rolls over to same higher amt. somebody remind me why i keep thinkin i should keep workin in pain....

      ssi is not anything anybody has paid in to, except indirectly, like welfare. the recipients of such have not paid in, or they'd be up for ssdi.

        Exactly. SSDI is based mostly on income and time worked. It is insurance.

        SSI is not based on that. The amount paid under SSI (essentially welfare) is based primarily on where you live, being unemployed due to a disability, and not being eligible for SSDI.

            why art? it's all about work benefits. maybe it should help ppl understand the benefits if one can work, and understand the politics in the upcoming election. some talk, some do. we need national health ins. but it needs to be better than some i've seen in other countries.

            i'll tell ya what makes me sad: 21 yrs of working in pain and now i can't do it any more and i not only am left with medicare but it takes more than 2 yrs to get it (2 yrs after they decide this quad can get ssdi which can be a 6 month period).

            we need a national health ins. that reflects the great doctors and facilities we have here.

              Even if you are approved right away, you still won't receive medicare until you have received SSDI for 24 months. So, it will be about 2 1/2 years before you can get the medicare at the earliest, no matter what. You should be able to cobra (if you can afford it) your work insurance, in the mean time. But you might want to go on short term disability and then long term disability through you job first. You will typically receive more income this way and still keep your healthcare. LTD can last for years. Then go for SSDI. Can you get a disability pension at work?

                  What makes me sad is the rule about only making $940. Why can someone only getting $700 a month only make $940 while someone getting over $1500 can also make $940 and not lose benefits.
                  If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.

                    Out of fairness, I think they have to keep the amount someone can make the same, and since SSDI is based on your income when you became disabled it is natural that some people have more than others, much as they did while working. It means they also paid in more over the years they worked.

                      I was always told if you made money....any money....working even part time....you risk the chance of losing your SSDI. Never herd about this 940 dollar stuff before....am sure SS would say if you can make 940....you can make more.....and risk the chance of losing benefits.
                      If you do work and earn money....no matter the amount you are suppose to report it to SS....then you have opened the door to hell. One of my friends tried that...part time work....a lousy 300 a month...he found out he couldn't do it after awhile and had to get a lawyer to get his SSDI back. I told him why you wanna risk 1200 a month for a lousy 300=1500. He got a letter from SSDI saying he was gona lose his benefits...why the lawyer...in the end....after 2 years of hell....he got it back...at the cost of his house in the meantime. Be carefull people...the goverment want you off of it...they don't care about you.

                        $0.

                        I'm self-employed & pay health insurance out-of-pocket.

                        It works out alright for now, although some months have been tight.

                          You can make upto $940 per month without losing benefits (SSDI). Your friend may have been collecting SSI. Different rules apply.

                              What really pisses me off...most anybody today that files for SSDI disabilty...you have to file...get rejected...hire a lawyer...to get what u put in the lousy system.....then have to pay your lawyer around 25% of what they recover....So if they give you 2 years to live....you file for SSDI.... you never see your SSDI....takes like 2 or 3 years to get to court with it.
                              Talk about BULLSHIT....Goverment at its best...So who is F?????? who?
