Social Security Stats for August 2009
From the Social Security website you can see how many people are drawing SS retirement, disability, SSI and the like. It also includes the monthly financial figures in each area. Interestingly it also includes what the average SSI recepient receives (around $500 a month) and what the average Social Security disability benefit is monthly (around $1100). Anyone eligible to receive benefits only receives what is calculated for his situation. Many of those we represent only receive $700 or $800 a month in SSDI (disability based on your earnings) and that may be because some of those who are injured may be working in lower paying jobs. So anyone thinking that Social Security gives you big bucks is mistaken. If you want to look at the stats click here.
