Mine is $2126 and I just got this recently. However, I worked a really long time. I am 56 years old now and just recently declared disabled and have been working since I was 17 and paying into the system. I think there was only year that I did not pay into the social security system out of all those years. Out of the $2126 about $150 needs to be set aside to pay taxes, so now $1976 monthly. Also, in two years (if I make it that long) Medicare will then be taken out which should be over $100 a month in addition. My background as a worker was never *rich* that is for sure.. I think a few years back in the 1990 s I made in the $50 s and $60 s yearly, but struggled this last 10 years to even make in the mid $30 s. Though I didn t have a fabulous income, I did work many, many years, which did offset and help some. The younger you are, I would imagine it would be less.
Be aware that Social Security looks heaviest at your last 10 years of earnings before becoming disabled. You also have had to work five of the last 10 years on average and paid into the social security system, if you are trying for benefits for yourself.
