The first check for eligible beneficiaries will arrive on December 1 for $841, while the second check, averaging $914, will arrive on December 30.
Due to the fact that it represents the revised SSI benefit level for the coming year, the second payment on December 30 is an early payment for January 2023.
Individuals who currently receive $841 in Supplemental Security Income will now earn $914.
Due to the fact that the payment for January 1, 2023 falls on a Sunday and is a holiday, SSI users will get two December payments.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) sends the cheques on the following working day whenever that occurs. In this instance, that day is December 30, a Friday.
SSI claimants received two payments in a month twice more this year, in April and September.
