Social Security beneficiaries can breathe a sigh of relief following the passing of a bill in the U.S. House to increase the debt ceiling, significantly reducing the likelihood of a delay in Social Security payments. The Senate is also predicted to pass the bill, with President Joe Biden poised to sign it into law, according to The Guardian.
The alleviation of this concern allows those dependent on Social Security to anticipate their forthcoming payments starting from June 1. Notably, recipients of Supplement Security Income (SSI) are set to receive two payments this month. Should you fail to receive your payment on the expected date, the SSA recommends waiting three extra mailing days before reaching out to them.
When you receive your social security checks in June
According to the Social Security Administration, SSI recipients will receive one payment on June 1 and another on June 30. An irregularity in the payment schedule allows SSI beneficiaries to receive two payments in March, June, September, and December, while no payments are processed in January, April, July, and October. The additional June payment can be seen as an advance for the following month.
SSI benefits cater to low-income individuals who are either 65 or older, blind, or have a qualifying disability. Qualifying disabilities are those that hinder you from working and are anticipated to persist for at least a year or result in death. For those who receive direct deposits, payments should arrive on the scheduled date, although fund availability may be subject to your bank’s policies.
The federal SSI benefit rate stands at $914 for an individual and $1,371 for a couple
In 2023, the federal SSI benefit rate stands at $914 for an individual and $1,371 for a couple. Some states, however, supplement these federal SSI benefits with additional payments, raising the total SSI benefit. The amounts for both SSI benefits and state supplemental payments vary based on income, living arrangements, and other factors, per the SSA.
However, Arizona, Arkansas, Mississippi, North Dakota, Northern Mariana Islands, Tennessee, and West Virginia, along with a few U.S. territories, do not provide an SSI supplement.
June 2023 will see Social Security retirement benefits paid as per the usual schedule. For individuals born between the 1st and 10th of the month, payments will be made on the second Wednesday of the month, June 14. Those born between the 11th and the 20th will receive their payments on the third Wednesday (June 21). Lastly, individuals with birthdays from the 21st to the 31st will receive their payments on the fourth Wednesday (June 28).
Do all states provide an SSI supplement?
The following states or territories do not pay a supplement to people who receive SSI: Arizona, Arkansas, North Dakota, Mississippi, Tennessee, West Virginia, and the Northern Mariana Islands. However, most states provide supplemental payments to SSI recipients, which vary from state to state based upon income, living arrangements, and other factors.
Some states administer their own supplemental payments, while others have Social Security administer some categories of State supplement payments, while the State administers other categories of supplemental payments. The amounts of the supplements vary by state, with New York offering an extra $87 a month for individuals or $104 for couples, while Alabama couples can get a $120 boost. To get the supplement, the application has to be done to the state directly, and the eligibility criteria and amount vary between different states.
How many Social Security payments will SSI recipients receive in June?
Based on the sources, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients will receive two payments in June. The first payment was sent on June 1, and the second payment will be sent on June 30, which is an advance payment for July and not a bonus payment. This is because SSI recipients receive two payments during months when the first of the month falls on a weekend, and they receive no payments in months such as January, April, July, and October.
If you are an SSI beneficiary, you should receive your payment on the scheduled date. If you don’t receive your payment on the expected date, the Social Security Administration advises allowing three additional mailing days before contacting the agency. If you receive direct deposit, the availability of funds might depend on your bank
