    Hi,

    Does anyone know how NY state determines the amount of money that a dependent child will receive from SSDI per month?

    I was told that the amount is different according to the state you live in.

    Thank you.

    think it doesn't matter what state you are in, it is a federal payment source... and it is treated like retirement based on your income..then if you have dependants they are entitled to a certain amount..

    for instance mine for myself like $900 a month and my son apportionment was $380. it will state on your yearly statements they send you it will be a pretty good ball park figure.
