Double Social Security payment in June 2023: eligibility, amounts, and payment dates
Certain beneficiaries will receive two Social Security payments in June and there are also two more months of the year in which this will be the case.
Each month, the Social Security Administration sends Social Secuirty checks and makes payments for Supplemental Security Income, in addition to distributing disability and survivor benefits.
The SSA is preparing to send out June benefits, and certain beneficiaries will receive a double payment next month. Here’s who’s eligible, the amounts, payment dates, and why sometimes two payments are made.
Double Social Security payment in June
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients will receive two payments in June. This is just a feature of the distribution schedule, which leaves benefices reciting two checks some months, followed by a month with no check. SSI payments are scheduled to be sent out on the first day of each month.
In case the first day of the month falls on a weekend, the payment is sent ahead of the previous month. To be specific, if the first day falls on a Saturday or Sunday, the payment for that month is sent on the Friday before the previous month. This is the situation in June which is why some will receive two checks.
Average Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments are around $650. The maximum benefit is $914 per month for an individual and $1,371 for a married couple, where both spouses are eligible for the program.
Double Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payment in June
June’s SSI payment will be issued on the first day of the month, and an additional payment will be sent out on June 30th, intended for July’s payment. This second payment is scheduled for the last Friday of June, as the first day of July falls on a Saturday. As a result, SSI recipients can expect two payments in June, but none in July. This pattern will continue in September and December of 2023.
Here is the schedule of the months in which SSI recipients will receive a double payment: June, September, and December.
