The SSA continues to distribute Social Security benefits this month. Which beneficiaries can accept to receive a payment on June 28?

Social Security checks: how much money is being sent in 2023?
In 2023, thanks to the 8.7 percent Cost-of-living adjustment, the average payments of retirees increased to 1,836.06 in May. However, for those who earned higher incomes throughout their career, the total amount sent may be closer to the maximum benefit amount: $2,572 per month for those who retire at sixty-two, $3,627 for workers who retire at the full retirement age of sixty-seven, and $4,555 for those who retire at seventy years old or older.
Meanwhile, average Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments are around $675.10 a month. The maximum monthly SSI benefit is up to $914 for an individual and $1,371 for married couples in cases where both spouses are eligible for benefits.
Double payments in June
The SSA has established a schedule for the monthly mailing of payments. Usually, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits are sent on the first day of each month. However, on some occasions, if the first day of the month falls on a Saturday or Sunday, the payment is pushed forward to the Friday before. This is the case in July, meaning that those who receive SSI will see their check deposited on Friday, 30 June. No check will be deposited in July.
Social Secuirty payments for those who began receiving benefits before 1997 are sent on the 3rd of each month. Similarly, if the third happens to be a weekend, then beneficiaries will see their payment deposited on the Friday before.
