Monthly benefits are payable from the Old-Age and Survivors Insurance (OASI) and Disability Insurance (DI) Trust Funds. Growth in the number of beneficiaries over time may be seen in a graph for broad classes of beneficiaries.
Because Social Security benefits are dependent on workers' earnings, the level of benefits can vary widely. (For information on the effect of earnings on benefits, see requirements for insured status and how we compute retirement benefits.) Using the form below, you can see how currently paid benefits vary. Just select the benefit type and click on "Go."
