Social Secu­ri­ty update: Direct pay­ment worth $914 arrives in 12 days

Mil­lions of Sup­ple­men­tal Secu­ri­ty Income ben­e­fi­cia­ries will receive the first of two Decem­ber SSI pay­ments from the Social Secu­ri­ty Admin­is­tra­tion, worth up to $914 for indi­vid­ual fil­ers, in just 12 days.
The first round of month­ly pay­ments is set to be dis­bursed on Fri­day, Dec. 1. The sec­ond pay­ment, which replaces Jan­u­ary’s install­ment, will go out exact­ly four weeks lat­er, on Dec. 29. The dou­ble pay­ment is because of a kink in the admin­is­tra­tion’s sched­ule due to Jan. 1 being a hol­i­day and Dec. 30 and Dec. 31 falling on a week­end.
The max­i­mum pay­ment that ben­e­fi­cia­ries could receive varies depend­ing on how they file for the ben­e­fits. For indi­vid­u­als, the max­i­mum rate for pay­ments is $914 per month. The max­i­mum rate for eli­gi­ble cou­ples for month­ly pay­ments is $1,371. Essen­tial per­sons, who live with some­one receiv­ing SSI and pro­vide them with nec­es­sary care, receive a month­ly pay­ment of up to $458.
