Due to a scheduling error,
recipients of Supplemental Security Income are now just a few weeks away from receiving the second of two payments that will be made in December, totaling $1,755.
The second payment is scheduled to be delivered to recipients on December 30 after the first payment was distributed to qualified recipients on December 1.
Due to January 1 falling on a Sunday, the January 2023 SSI payment will be delivered on Friday, December 30.
March, June, September, and December are the four months with two payments each in 2023.
Individuals will be required to pay $914, while eligible couples will pay $1,371.
SSI recipients who are essential persons—those who reside with them and provide for their basic needs—will receive $458.
According to the Social Security Administration, SSI payments were first made to qualified individuals in January 1974, and since 1975,
payment rates have increased in line with inflation in order to account for cost-of-living adjustments.
