How much does disability pay in Colorado?
If you live in Colorado or any state as both SSDI and SSI are federal, the disability program that you qualify for will determine your disability pay. If you are eligible for Social Security Disability benefits, the amount of your earnings prior to your becoming disabled will determine your monthly disability payment.
The average SSD benefit is about $1250.00 per month in 2019, however your disability benefit could be lower or higher than this amount. The maximum disability benefit payable in Colorado or any other state through the Social Security Disability Insurance program is $2861.00.
If you are not eligible for SSD or your SSD disability pay is very low, you may qualify for SSI disability benefits. SSI is a need based disability program and as such it has a set maximum monthly disability amount of $771.00 per month for an individual and a couples rate of $1157.OO monthly.
Social Security Disability pay rates do not differ state to state; if you live in Colorado you will receive the same federal disability pay as you would in any other state.
