Millions of Americans will receive a significant monetary boost in the coming days.
The SSI Program
According to the U.S Sun report, adults and children with disabilities who have income below certain financial limits are eligible for Supplementary Security Income (SSI). The monthly maximum for SSI is now $841 per month for an individual in 2022, up from $794 in 2021, according to the SSI.
SSI beneficiaries will receive an additional $821 in addition to their forthcoming installments. Due to the new COLA and the holidays, these claimants received two checks in December and February 1.
On January 19, millions of Social Security recipients in the United States got $1,657 checks. Also, those who are born between January 11 and January 20 receive their benefits on the third Wednesday of each month.
Social Security Administration Benefits
In 2022, Social Security benefits and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payouts will rise by 5.9% for over 70 million Americans. When the cost of living rises, as determined by the Consumer Price Index of the Department of Labor, federal benefits climb as well (CPI-W).
US News recently published a report that even though they have previously earned COLA benefits, many Americans have gotten a new check if they are Social Security beneficiaries. Moreover, if Social Security checks aren’t enough to cover monthly expenses, beneficiaries can apply for Social Security Supplement Income.
SSI would be paid on top of your monthly payments if you are qualified. According to Forbes, SSI benefits are predicted to rise to $821 per month in 2022, up from $794 per month.
According to the U.S Sun report, Social Security Disability Insurance is likewise affected by the 5.9% COLA hike (SSDI). From $1,282 to $1,358 per month, the average monthly payment for disabled workers will increase by $76. People with disabilities who are unable to work at all or in the same capacity as before are eligible for SSDI benefits.
