Social Security Disability benefits are all or nothing – you either qualify or you don’t
Unlike other programs such as Workers’ Compensation or VA benefits, there is no disability rating or sliding scale of payment with either Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). In other words, if you are approved for disability benefits, you are receiving the maximum allowable monthly benefit according to either your past work history or your assets and resources.
If you are currently receiving either SSDI or SSI benefits, you are not entitled to any additional Social Security benefits. Regardless of whether your conditions change or worsen, you are receiving your maximum allowable benefits under their rules.
