IN just four short days, Americans will be receiving checks worth $1,657.
However, not everyone will get them at the same time, since an individual’s birthday will determine when they should be expecting their check.
The social security checks will be distributed every second and fourth Wednesday of each month.
Some people will have to wait a bit longer for their monthly benefits if they were born at the end of a month.
Those who have a birthday between the first and tenth day of a month should be expecting their checks on the second Wednesday of that month.
Similarly, those who have a birthday between the 11th and 20th of the month should receive their payment on the third Wednesday.
Lastly, for people who were born between the 21st and 31st, their payment will be available on the fourth Wednesday of the month.
For example, payments during the month of April will be distributed on the 13th, 20th and 27.
Payments for the month of May will be distributed on the 11th, 18th and 25th.
The checks are being sent out to reflect the updated cost of living (COLA) and inflation.
The payment re-determination was based on data from the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W)
This has been the highest annual increase in the last 40 years, according to The Republic Monitor website.
This updated payment is targeted toward retirees who are enrolled in Social Security Benefits and COLA, according to the MARCA website.
Those who are only enrolled in SSI benefits will see a $47 increase in their monthly payments.
For last year, the maximum amount for SSI was $794 while the new maximum is $841.
The SSI increase will affect more than 7.8 million Americans while about 70million Americans will be recipients of the $1,657 checks according to the websites mentioned above.
