In 2019, the maximum Federal SSI payment amount an eligible individual can receive is $771 per month. If two SSI-eligible individuals are married, the maximum monthly Federal SSI payment the couple can receive is $1,157. This is the amount the couple is entitled to in total, not per person. SSI payments can be reduced or offset due to many different factors, so it’s important to remember that the number amounts above represent the maximum amounts that eligible individuals can receive. Your payment may end up being less if, for example, you have other sources of income coming into your household or you have certain assets. The attorneys at Smith Godios Sorensen Inc. are happy to answer any specific questions you have about whether you are eligible for SSI or what can affect the amount of SSI you receive.
