3 Min Read

If you receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI), you’re eligible for the next payment of $1,415, which arrives on Monday, July 1. SSI helps seniors with limited income and resources. Let’s break down what this means for you.

How Much You’ll Get

SSI payments vary based on your filing status. Individuals can receive up to $943 per month, while couples get $1,415. This amount already includes a 3.2% boost from last year’s cost of living adjustment (COLA).

Future Payments

Next year, if the COLA projection holds at 3.2%, payments could increase to $973 for individuals and $1,460 for couples.

Payment Schedule

Payments are typically made on the first of the month, unless it falls on a weekend or holiday. Sometimes, payments arrive early due to these schedule quirks.

Calculating Your Benefits

Your Social Security benefits are calculated based on your earnings history. The SSA uses a formula to determine how much you’ll receive each month, known as your primary insurance amount (PIA). You can check your earnings history and estimate your benefits by logging into your SSA online account.

Special Payments After Retirement

If you continue working after retirement, certain payments like bonuses or commissions may affect your benefits. It’s important to understand what counts as income after retirement.

Understanding your SSI payments and how they’re calculated can help you plan for the future. Visit the SSA website for more detailed information on your specific benefits and payment schedule.
