Social Security Payment Schedule 2024: Important Dates

Now that people receiving Social Security know they will receive more money in 2024, the next thing to figure out is when that money will actually appear. The Social Security Administration recently shared the payment schedule for 2024 and it is following the same routine as always.

In October 2023, the SSA announced a 3.2% increase in the cost of living for 2024. This means that the monthly averages for each type of Social Security benefit saw a 3.2% increase starting in January 2023. 2024.

Here’s a breakdown of exactly how much each type of Social Security benefit increased from 2023 to 2024 thanks to the 3.2% COLA:

  • The maximum monthly Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefit payment increased by $195 to $3,822 for eligible individuals in 2024.
  • The maximum monthly Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefit payment increased by $29 to $943 for eligible individuals, and increased $44 to $1,415 for eligible couples in 2024.
  • The average monthly survivor benefit increased approximately $47 to $1,505 in 2024.
  • The average monthly retirement benefit increased by $57.39, based on the average of $1,793.51 in September 2023.

Although the 3.2% increase was much smaller than the 8.7% we saw for 2023, it is still higher than the 2.6% average of the last two decades.

Here’s how the 2024 payment schedule works, especially for those receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI): SSI recipients receive two payments in March, June, September and December. They will not receive money in January, April, July and October. The remaining months (February, May, August and November) will have a single payment.
