Social security utilizes a formula to determine the monthly benefit. You can order your record from social security and the amount that you would get is called the PIA, the Principal Insured Amount. That is true for SSDI, the kind of disability where you’ve paid into the system, you’re fully insured, and you’re drawing out benefits during your impairment.
The amount that you get is dependent on how much you’ve paid into the system so someone who’s made more money will get a greater monthly benefit. The current maximum is approximately $2600. If you’ve paid less into the system, you’re going to get less, on the other hand, if you are getting welfare or SSI, which is based on need and disability, you’re capped at $733 per month.
