Payment of Social Security benefits in the United States it depends on several factors. If we want to know the day we receive each payment, we only need to know which pensioner group we belong to. On the other hand, the amount we receive each month depends on our work history.
So by maximizing our work history we will be able to get the biggest check possible. It’s in our hands and we can change it, but the day we get the check each month, we can’t change it. The moment we retire, the day on the calendar we receive the salary is marked and it is irrevocable.
In relation to all this we find COLA. This COLA causes the monthly Social Security checks to get an increase. And in this 2024 year, we won’t have a record increase, but we will see an increase in checks, which is always good news.
The first of the payments with this increase will be tomorrow, January 3, but it’s good to keep in mind that the remaining payments will also receive this extra money. We should not worry if we do not receive the payment on January 3rd as the other payments for the remainder of 2024 will have Social Security COLA also included.
How Much Will Social Security Checks Increase in 2024?
everyone Social security the check will get its own increment. And this increase will be the same for all beneficiaries. By this we mean that each check will increase by a fixed percentage. It is not possible to receive a COLA higher than 3.2%, nor is it possible to receive a lower COLA.
In this sense, it is very easy to know how much the monthly check will increase. By simply adding 3.2% to our monthly benefit, we will have the exact amount of money we will receive. If we have a check forr $2500 per monthfor example, the payment will come to approximately $2,580.
And this increase will apply to all checks. It doesn’t matter if the payment is due to disability, retirement or some other reason. The important thing in these cases is to get a monthly payment, and from there we will see a COLA increase not only in 2024, but throughout the rest of the year.
When does the new January 2024 retirement check arrive?
In January 2024 we will see a new one maximum check from Social Security, but we also have to keep in mind that each beneficiary gets paid on a different day. Just by looking at the calendar, we will know very well what time of the month we will receive the benefit.
So these are the days for pension payment in January 2024.
- January 3.
- January 10.
- January 17.
- January 24.
January 3 will be for beneficiaries with a retirement before 1997. Retirees retiring after this year will be paid the remaining three days. In addition, there are other requirements for January 10, 17 and 24. January 10 is for pensioners with a birthday between the 1st and 10th of the month. January 17 is for beneficiaries with a birthday between the 11th and 20th of the month. Finally, January 24 is for pensioners with birthdays between the 21st and 31st of each month.
The type of retirement it does not matter, nor does the amount belong to one of these groups. Only the year of retirement and the day of birth matter. There are no other important data in this regard, so we don’t have to worry about the rest of the information, just these two data.
