The Social Security Agency has been issuing SSI to eligible individuals and couples since January 1974, working to provide financial relief for those with limited incomes and resources. Not all eligible people receive the same amount because location and other forms of income are factors, too, according to the agency.
Social Security payments increase year to year to stay on pace with inflation. The latest increase of 5.9% went into effect in January 2022. The cost-of-living adjustment for 2023 may increase to 10.5% or more, the Washington Examiner previously reported.
