The payment, which is the first check of 2024 because of a scheduling quirk in the Social Security Administration’s calendar, will be released on Thursday, Feb. 1.
The amount each person receives varies depending on how the recipient filed for the payment. There are three categories when filing: individual, joint, or as an essential person.
This year, individual filers will receive up to $943 each month, eligible couples will receive up to $1,415, and essential persons, who live with people receiving SSI payments and provide them with necessary care, will get $472, according to the SSA.
Not every recipient will receive the maximum payment, and filers can see a personalized estimate
