The last of the payments the United States Social Security Administration will send to Disability beneficiaries in 2023 is near for the next group. While it is true that not all recipients of this benefit will cash a check in the next week, one group will stop getting payments worth up to $3,627.
This is not a bad thing, quite the contrary. That is, the $3,627 payment ceases to be the payment with the highest value because Social Security disability benefits will have the new COLA added to them starting in January 2024. That will mean an increase in the Social Security benefit check and all other benefits related to this Administration.
For disability benefits the maximum payment will go from $3,627 to approximately $3,743. Undoubtedly, the increase is not as big as this year 2023, since it was 8.7%, but it is welcome, as any other increase we can get.
But before the increase takes place still disability beneficiaries must get one more payment. This payment is the December Social Security check and will be the last of the year. In the next week a new group of eligible citizens will get this new check.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR THE NEXT DISABILITY BENEFIT CHECK?
Regardless of the type of disability a citizen can get the next Social Security payment. To do so, two requirements must be met. Likewise, any other Social Security beneficiary can receive the same payment. It is enough to meet these two requirements.
And since the requirements don’t cover the type of Social Security payment, it doesn’t matter if ours is a retirement, age, SSDI, or widow’s or widower’s payment, for example. If we meet these two requirements, we will get the payment very soon.
These are the two requirements to get your next Social Security payment:
- Have an accepted Social Security check from after 1997. Any payments prior to this time arrived last December 1st, so you should already be in the pocket of every American with this benefit.
- Have a birthday between the 1st and 10th of the month. If our birthday is outside of those days the payment will arrive on a different day. There is no need to worry because we will still get the payment, whether it is sooner or later.
Fulfilling these conditions ensures that the Administration will send us a check on the next December 13th. This will be the last payment for retirees of this disability benefit with a maximum amount of $3,627.
Remember to activate Direct Deposit so you can get the money without having to wait. This will make the disability check appear immediately in our checking account.
