For example, for a disabled single adult with independent living status living in California in 2013, the benefit is:
- 907 maximum (includes California SSP) 1/1/09
- 870 maximum (includes California SSP) 5/1/09
- 850 maximum (includes California SSP) 7/1/09
- 866.40 maximum (includes California SSP.) 7/1/13
- 710 maximum federal payment 2013
The payment may be reduced based upon an individual’s income and resources.
