2012 SSI and SSDI Payment Amounts

Each year the Social Security Administration announces in October if there will be any changes in the amount of payments of SSI and SSDI due to Cost of Living Adjustments.  The new payments for SSI for 2012 are $698 to and individual, and $1048 to a married couple who are both on SSI.  SSI is the welfare disability program for persons who were disabled since birth or who haven't paid sufficient minimum taxes to qualify.

SSA administers another program for persons with disabilities who did pay taxes.  The payments for persons on Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are based on the amount of Social Security taxes paid during their working years. 

The average benefit paid to a disabled worker, his spouse and one or more children in $1,892 per month.
