In just one week a new group of United States Social Security retirees will be able to enjoy the $4,555 retirement check. This check will arrive on the second Wednesday of December and not all Americans will enjoy the payment. It is important to keep in mind that in order to get this check it is mandatory to meet certain requirements.
Even so, retirees who do not have access to the next payment have nothing to worry about. There are more Social Security payment days in the United States, so if we do not get the payment on the second Wednesday of December, we will get it in the next few days. Everything will depend on the requirements we meet and which group of retirees we belong to.
The important thing in these cases is to be familiar with the payment schedule. This is vital for retirees to be able to perfectly organize their household and family finances. Especially now that Christmas is coming, when it is so important to have a clear idea of the money we have available for gifts, dinners and the like. Do you know when you will get your Social Security payment in December 2023?
WHO CAN COLLECT THE NEXT SOCIAL SECURITY PAYMENT IN DECEMBER 2023?
To have access to the new Social Security payment we must belong to group 2 retirees. This group has very specific characteristics. In the case of not being within these characteristics we will not be able to access the payment of that day, so we will have to wait for another different day to collect. The collection day will be December 13th.
The next retirees to receive the new payment are those who meet the following requirements:
- Have a Social Security benefit since after 1997. It does not matter the type of retirement, the years at the time of retirement or the amount of the check. The only important thing is to have the retirement payment activated after that year.
- You must have your birthday between the 1st and 10th of any month. The month of birth does not matter, nor does the year. The important fact to have the payment for this day is to have your birthday between the 1st and the 10th of any month.
In addition to these two mandatory requirements there is one more if we want to get the payment immediately. To get the check at the time Social Security sends it, we must have activated Direct Deposit as a collection method. This collection method is the fastest of all because it allows us to have the check instantly without having to wait a day.
OTHER RETIREMENT PAYMENTS IN DECEMBER 2023
In addition to this payment, the Social Security Administration sends other different payments to retirees by check. These payments will be on the following Wednesdays after the December 13th. In addition, on December 1st, the Administration sent the first of these checks to retirees.
On December 20, retirees with birthdays between the 11th and 20th of the month will receive their benefits. Finally, on the 27th of this month, retirees with birthdays between the 21st and 31st of any month will receive their payment. These will be the last payments of the 2023 calendar.
After that we will have to wait until 2024 to see a new check. So December will have the last Social Security payments without the 3.2% COLA added, so starting in January we will get a little extra money thanks to this increase.
