What Is the Maximum Nevada Social Security Amount?

Disability benefits are federal social security payments made to any American who has applied for these benefits and had their application (i.e., condition) deemed by the Social Security Administration (SSA) as being severe enough to qualify to receive disability payments. Given that both disability benefits programs—Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI)—are federal programs, these programs’ payments are not dependent on the state in which you live. As such, disability benefit payments made to beneficiaries residing in Nevada are calculated in the same way as those who live in any other state in the United States.

Disability benefits are paid through two main programs. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are paid because you have accumulated sufficient work credits under the social security disability insurance scheme. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments may be available to those who have not acquired enough work credits and also have a lower level of income and assets than the amounts specified by the SSA.

SSI maximum payments are lower than SSDI payments. The maximum SSI payment in 2023 for an individual will be $914 a month for an eligible individual and $1,371 for an eligible individual with an eligible spouse.

SSDI maximum payments depend on how many work credits have been obtained during one’s previous employment and Social Security payroll contributions, whether the individual applicant is earning more or less than a stated Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA), whether they have a spouse or dependent family member(s), and whether there are specific additional medical or location costs.

The average monthly payment for an individual receiving disability benefit payments through the SSDI program will be $1,483 in 2023. The maximum for an eligible individual, spouse and one or more dependent children will be $2,616 in 2023. However, payments could go up further if additional necessary medical or location costs are included. The absolute maximum payable amount in 2023 is $3,627 a month.
