Social security for disability or SSDI payments are about to be in your pocket. There are only a few days left until the first social security check. This December you will redeem yours money 2 days before usual.
Seniors and disabled people get their Social Security on the 3rd of the month if they were on benefits before May 1997. But since it’s a weekend, you can get it on the previous business day. So, here’s why yours SSDI the check will arrive on December 1st, not December 3rd.
Another option to cash in on the 3rd day of the month is to get both SSI and SSDI. If this is your case, you will also receive your payment on the first day of December 2023. You are correct, if you receive Social Security Disability and SSI, you will receive two checks on the same day.
Payments for SSDI beneficiaries after December 1
According to the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) payment schedule, there will be three more payment days for those included SSDI. However, to be eligible, in addition to not receiving disability benefits before May 1997, your date of birth must be on a specific date.
December 13 will be your payday if you received benefits on or after May 1997 and your date of birth is between the 1st and 10th of the month. So if you meet both requirements, you will receive your Social Security this Wednesday.
SSDI beneficiaries will have another opportunity to receive money December 20. In addition to the filing date requirement, your birthday must fall between the 11th and 20th of the month.
Last chance to get yours SSDI checking will be the last Wednesday of December. So if your birthday is from the 21st to the 31st, your money will be ready on the 27th of December.
How much can I get from my SSDI in December?
This will depend on the age you filed, your work history and your previous earnings. For example, if you worked for 35 years and earned the taxable maximum during that time, you can choose a check worth up to 3627 dollars.
However, this is unlikely and you might just get an average payment of around $1489. This is the average value SSDI check in 2023 for people with these disability benefits.
Unfortunately, 2024 COLA an increase will not be available for any of these payments. Unless you’re on SSI, you won’t get a boost in 2023. Remember, the increase will be 3.2%.
Thanks to this increase, you will receive an average payment of about $1,537. SSI beneficiaries could receive up to $943 in 2024. The COLA increase will arrive on December 29, and that will be their January payment, but in advance.
