Social Security Disability Insurance
In a recently published article in The U.S. Sun, the new payment schedule takes effect on December 30th for SSI and January 1st for Social Security. Social Security Disability Insurance will have a 5.9% COLA boost as well (SSDI). Average monthly disability benefits are set to rise from $1,282 to $1358, an increase of $76.
The goal of the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program is to help persons with impairments who are no longer able to work at the same level as previously. The purpose of the benefit is to replace a part of the wages of those who qualify for it. SSI individuals will earn $841 a month, while married couples would receive $1,261 a month.
The Social Security Administration sent out a letter to those who were affected, outlining the changes to their monthly benefits. The Social Security Administration advises that if you did not get a warning, you may still view the information by logging into your account online.
