Maximum Family Benefit

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Sat, 10/15/2016 - 00:20

I presently collect 880$ per month disability. I recently adopted my granddaughter. I've read on line she should collect $440. 50% of what I collect unless we go over the maximum family benefit amount. How is that determined? What would be my maximum family benefit amount be ? Thank you

Hi There,
The maximum family benefit is 180% of your monthly benefit. So, if you get $1000 per month, your dependents could get 80% of that, or $800 total, in monthly benefits at maximum.
