From the time the Social Security Administration announces the increase in United States disability benefits until the checks actually increase takes a few months. However, some Americans may get this increase a little sooner.
In order to get this COLA increase sooner we must meet several requirements. If we are within the eligibility criteria we will get this annual COLA increasea little early.
Best of all, it’s not just beneficiaries with a disability who will be able to enjoy this increase in Social Security checks early. Any eligible beneficiary will be able to get that extra money sooner than usual.
There are two main requirements to be able to collect this. All citizens who have access to these two requirements will be able to collect the payment early. Just by fulfilling this we will have enough. And this will mean that we will be able to collect a little earlier, which will be a relief for some families.
WHICH BENEFICIARIES WITH A DISABILITY CAN COLLECT THE 2024 TAIL EARLY?
In order to get a check early, we must meet two requirements. And within these requirements does not enter having a disability benefit, but it is possible for a beneficiary in this situation to meet the eligibility criteria.
There is no other extra requirement to get the check early. So you just have to have these two requirements met and you can get the first check with the added 2024 COLA a few days early.
Specifically, you will get the Supplemental Security Incomepayment on the 29th day of December. This payment is in January, but it will arrive earlier because January 1st is a holiday. So you will be able to enjoy the check a few days earlier.
In addition, it should also be noted that the Supplemental Security Income, whether for beneficiaries with a disability or those over 65, will be more than $914. Currently that is the maximum amount, but thanks to COLA it may increase a little in the next year.
If the increase is ultimately 3%, as many experts are commenting, the check could increase by $27. This would bring the maximum Supplemental Security Income payment for beneficiaries with a disability to $941 per month.
