NOTES: Among the 7.6 million Social Security beneficiaries shown above, roughly 1.1 million were also receiving a federal SSI payment. Totals do not necessarily equal the sums because of rounding. Federal SSI dollars partially estimated and include retroactive payments.
a. Since the benefit amounts for workers and for the various types of family members and survivors are based on different proportions of the worker's benefit, average monthly amounts for groups of these different kinds of beneficiaries are not meaningful.
