There are only five days left until some Social Security beneficiaries start receiving their up to $4,194 per month retirement payments.
The SSA issuing payments on December 21 for Social Security recipients born on the 11th through the 20th of the month, marking the second payment this month.
According to the SSA calendar, the recipients of the third and final wave of checks this month, which will be issued on December 28,
will be people who were born on the 21st through the 31st of a given month.
The amount of these checks that recipients receive will vary depending on a number of variables.
A person must have retired at age 70 to be eligible for the maximum check of $4,194, $3,345 for those who retired at age 67,
and $2,364 per month for those who retired at age 62.
Other payments made by the organisation, such as disability insurance or Supplemental Security Income,
the latter of which is scheduled to be paid to beneficiaries on December 30, are different from these checks.
