There were three previous ones SSDI payments in December, which means it will be the last one. It’s usually on December 3rd. Unless it’s a holiday or weekend. In addition, there will be three more inspections on the second, third and fourth Wednesdays of December.

To receive Social Security, you must have worked for at least ten years. However, there are exceptions for younger workers who apply SSDI. For example, if you are 60 years old, you must have worked for 9.5 years.

In contrast, those workers who develop a disability before age 28 simply need 1.5 years of work, the SSA requires. Anyway, average SSDI payments are simple 1489 dollars in 2023 and will soon be $1,907 for the January 2024 payments.

SSDI payments will not trigger the 2024 COLA increase in 2023. Unlike SSI recipients, they will have to wait until January to take advantage of Social Security’s 3.2% COLA increase.

The SSDI the 2024 COLA payment days will be January 3, 10, 17, and 24. Then it will be the beneficiaries of people with disabilities who will get about $48 extra per month. Just for one year SSDI recipients can receive $576.
