How much can you make and still get disability in Colorado?
There is no minimum monthly benefit amount if you are approved for disability in Colorado or any other state (as the disability system is federal and standardized in all states). The amount a person receives under the SSD, or Social Security Disability, system really depends 1. on their insured status (meaning did they actually work long enough to earn the work credits needed to become insured to receive SSDI, or Social Security Disability Insurance) and 2. on their actual earnings.
If there is a "set" amount, this would be associated with the SSI disability program that operates under the same rules as Social Security Disability but which is not based on a person's insured status. SSI is need-based and is a program that provides for those who are children, have a history of low earnings, or who were once insured for SSDI but due to not having worked for a long time are no insured.
