Beneficiaries of Supplemental Security Income are poised to get their next batch of monthly payments of up to $841 in 19 days.

The $841 payment will come Dec. 1, and for eligible couples, the amount could total up to $1,261, while essential individuals living with someone on SSI and providing care could receive payments of up to $421.


By the month’s end, SSI recipients will garner an inflation-boosted check of up to $914 on Dec. 30, according to a schedule from the Social Security Administration. Typically, SSI checks are rolled out on a monthly basis, but the double payment next month is due to a scheduling quirk caused by the holidays.

Payments are generally delivered on the first of the month, but when that falls on a holiday or a weekend, they are often doled out on the last weekday before the first of the next month. The double-payment quirk took effect for January, May, and October of this year and will take place in January of next year as well.

SSI is slated to get a cost-of-living boost of $73 per month in 2023, compared to the payments in 2022, due to inflation. This has resulted in the $914 figure for the Dec. 30 payment. Social Security payments are broadly slated to get an 8.7% cost-of-living adjustment next year.

Couples on SSI who receive about $1,261 a month will get a boost up to $1,371 for next year’s monthly payments, according to CNBC.
