This payment marks the second Social Security installment for the month of June, with the initial payment having been disbursed on June 1. Notably, this particular payment is replacing the regular July payment due to its proximity to the weekend, falling on July 1. It’s important to note that the payment amounts may vary, as different categories such as individual filers, joint filers, and essential persons receive different payment amounts.
The Social Security Administration has outlined the payment amounts for recipients of Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Individuals filing individually are set to receive $914 per month, eligible couples will receive $1,371, and essential persons individuals residing with SSI recipients and providing essential care will receive a monthly payment of $458.
Supplemental Security Income June payments
It’s important to note that SSI payments are provided in addition to regular Social Security benefits. The program extends monthly payments to adults and children who have limited income and are affected by blindness or other disabilities. Qualification for SSI entails being over 65 years old, having total or partial blindness, or having physical or mental conditions that severely limit daily activities for at least 12 months or are expected to result in death.
On June 30, individuals enrolled in the Supplemental Security Income program can anticipate the arrival of their checks, amounting to a maximum of $914 for individual filers.
Typically, SSI payments are disbursed on the first day of each month. However, exceptions arise when the first day falls on a weekend or a holiday. In such cases, the Social Security Administration ensures that monthly SSI checks are sent on the last business day preceding the month.
Modified Schedule Ensures 12 SSI Payments Annually with Varying Monthly Deliveries
To ensure that beneficiaries receive a total of 12 Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments per year, the schedule has been adjusted. This means that some months will yield two payments, while others will have none. In the current year, four months will witness the delivery of two payments: March, June, September, and December. This arrangement is necessitated by weekends or holidays falling on the first of the month in April, July, October, and January 1, which is consistently observed as a holiday.
According to the Social Security Administration (SSA), SSI payments were initially introduced in January 1974. Since 1975, the agency has been increasing payment rates to accommodate cost-of-living adjustments.
Why is the $914 direct payment replacing the regular July payment?
The $914 direct payment is not replacing the regular July payment. Recipients of the Social Security Administration’s Supplemental Security Income program will receive their second June payments, worth up to $914 for individual filers, in 24 days on Friday, June 30, and it will be the second of two checks for the month of June. The first was sent on June 1. The second payment is taking the place of July’s payment because July 1 is on a weekend.
The adjusted schedule ensures that beneficiaries still receive 12 checks per year, even though in some months they receive two checks, and they receive none in others. There are four months in which two payments will be delivered in the same month this year: March, June, September, and December. This is because the first of the month falls on a weekend or holiday in April, July, and October, and Jan. 1 is always a holiday
