For the year 2023, the maximum monthly amount for an eligible individual is $914, $1,371 for an eligible couple, and $458 for an essential person. The amount changes based on annual cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs), which are tied to inflation.  SSI payments are separate from regular Social Security retirement or disability benefits, Tododisca reported. While those benefits are based on your work history and earnings, SSI payments are based solely on financial need.

However, not all retirees who receive Social Security benefits are eligible for SSI payments.
