Women Average $1,000 in Disability Benefits per Month

According to Allsup, women receiving disability benefits in 2013 averaged more than $1,000 per month. This is the highest figure that has been listed for women in recent years. In December 2012, the average monthly SSDI benefit for women was about $993. The figure rose to more than $1,011 by the end of 2013. The average SSDI benefits for men rose from $1,256 to about $1,271.

According to research, it wasn't until the 1990s that women earned enough money to be fully insured for Social Security Disability Insurance at a rate that was comparable to men. The Social Security Administration says that things are dramatically changing for women who are applying for SSDI insurance and more and more of them are receiving high payments.

According to Allsup, many women aren't aware that they are covered by SSDI. They may delay filing for Social Security benefits after disability forces them to quit working, which can jeopardize their ability to receive full payments in the future. The SSA says that it is important that women recognize that they can receive significant coverage under disability. Having a documented work history is vital to prove that an individual deserves SSDI benefits.
