On February 1, $914 worth of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits will be received by beneficiaries. The beneficiaries are set to receive these payments in February after not receiving payments this January. Nonetheless, the beneficiaries have received two payments on December 2022. The first payment was released on December 1 and the second on December 30. The payment on December 30 served as the payment for January because the first day of January is New Year which is a holiday.

According to Notheis, the Social Security Administration (SSA) said that the SSI payments will be received by beneficiaries on the first day of the month except when the date falls on a weekend or a holiday. If this happens, the payments will be received on the last weekday of the previous month. However, no matter the case, the SSA will issue a total of 12 payments every year. This 2023, the SSA will release two payments in the months of March, June, September, and December because the months they follow begin with a weekend or a holiday.

What are the SSI Payments?

According to Notheis, SSI payments from the Social Security Administration intend to help the elder and disabled people who have little to no income of their own. The payments provide them with the ability to afford essential needs like food and shelter. Those who are eligible for these payments are couples for SSI and essential persons who live with and provide necessary care to a beneficiary receiving SSI. Couples will receive $1,371 worth of payments, while essential persons will receive $458. The SSI payments in 2023 are somewhat higher than in 2022 because of the cost-of-living adjustment made by the SSA. In 2022, the SSI payments were worth $841 compared to the payments in 2023 which increased by 8.7%.
