The maximum Federal SSI payment amount for an eligible individual in 2019 is $771 per month. The maximum monthly Federal SSI payment for a married couple is $1,157. However, both individuals must be SSI-eligible. Keep in mind, his is the total amount for a couple, not per person.
SSI payments can be reduced or offset due to many different factors. The 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 certain assets, your payments could be lower.
