SSI: Payments are based on need. The monthly maximum Federal amounts for 2015:

$733 for an eligible individual

$1,100 for an eligible individual with an eligible spouse

$367 for an essential person

This represents a 1.5% increase over 2013 payments. (Note: Some states supplement Federal SSI benefits.)

SSDI: Payments are based on the worker’s Social Security earnings before he became disabled.

The average SSDI payment was $1,165 a month in 2015.

You can receive up to $2,663 a month.
