How much money will I get if I am approved for SSI?

Last Updated August 2018

The amount of SSI you get depends on:

  • Your living situation
  • Your age, and
  • Whether you are married.

The amount of money changes each year based on the Cost of Living. You can see the current payment amounts at:  SSI Payment Level       

You can get extra money in Massachusetts over what you get from SSI. See the “State Supplement” section. Most SSI recipients get both a federal SSI payment and some extra money from the Massachusetts SSI State Supplement.
