Social Security Disability beneficiaries in the United States will be celebrating in just a few days. Good news is coming for millions of these citizens who have an accepted benefit.
However, not all Americans with a disability will be able to enjoy this new check. Likewise, not all Social Security beneficiaries will be able to collect this new benefit, since it is mandatory to be within a specific group to get it.
What is true is that it is not necessary to collect a specific type of benefit. That is, it is not necessary to have a disability benefit to get the new check, but anyone with an accepted Social Security check can get the benefit if they meet the other requirements.
Similarly, the amount of this benefit is directly dependent on the beneficiary himself or herself. The Social Security Administration does not send a random amount to its beneficiaries, but is based on each individual’s work history.
WHICH CITIZENS WITH A DISABILITY WILL GET A CHECK IN 10 DAYS?
Only a group of beneficiaries with a disability will be able to get the new check within 10 days. The exact day of the payment will be December 13th and the first group of beneficiaries with a check after 1997 can get this payment.
To be part of this group, two requirements must be met. The first requirement is to have the check since after 1997, as we have already mentioned, and the other requirement is to have a birthday between the 1st and 10th of any month.
It is important to keep in mind that the birthday can be in any month. Likewise, the year of birth does not matter in order to cash this check. What matters is only the day of birth and the year of retirement. With those two elements we will be able to set the day of our monthly Social Security disability check.
WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF THIS BENEFIT?
Social Security disability beneficiaries who have a check can reach a maximum of $3,627 on this December 13th. However, keep in mind that for this day in December we will collect the same benefit that we have been collecting for the rest of 2023.
As of the first of the January payments, we will have a higher benefit in the disability checks as well as in the rest of the benefits. Thus, the maximum payment of $3,627 will increase to $3,743 per month.
Similarly, the rest of the Social Security benefits will also have an increase. Thus, the maximum Supplemental Security Income benefit payment will be $943 in 2024 and the Social Security age retirement check will increase to $4,700 per month.
