Now that the first two months of the year are behind us and United States citizens have begun to get back to their normal financial routine, there is another piece of good news for some. Receiving a double Supplemental Security Income check is possible due to a change in the April calendar. Social Security will send out two checks in March, so pay attention in case you’re on the list.
Not all retirees are eligible to receive one of these checks from the Social Security Administration. Only a specific group of pensioners have access to this extra money that can help them get through the month as well as possible. They receive this cheque every month as long as they meet the requirements at all times.
The maximum Supplemental Security Income is $914. This means that a family who has access to the maximum SSI check from Social Security will be able to count on almost $1,000 more per month. This is good news, since this benefit is created so that those most in need have enough money to pay for their monthly expenses.
Who gets both SSI and SSI from the March check?
People who can receive a check from Social Security’s Supplemental Security Income are as follows:
- People who are 65 or older.
- People of any age, including children, who are blind or have disabilities.
However, receiving this check is not an automatic process. In order to be eligible to receive one of these Social Security checks, it is mandatory to apply in advance. In order to find out if we are eligible for SSI, we can use the Best Tool. Using this Administration tool we will be able to find out in minutes if we are eligible to apply for this benefit.
We will receive the two SSI checks in March on the 1st and 31st, respectively. All users with the accepted benefit will be able to receive it without any problems. There is no specific requirement from Social Security to receive the second of the March checks.
Still, remember that the check for the 31st of March actually belongs to the month of April. Therefore, this means that we will not receive a Supplemental Security Income check in April, since we received it early.
