Americans with disabilities will soon see payments worth $841 for individuals and $1,261 for eligible couples collecting SSDI.
This increase is happening due to the 5.9% increase in COLA.
SSDI is a form of income to help replace income a person received before they became disabled and unable to work at the same level they could before.
SSDI beneficiaries can expect an average payment of $1,358 per month in 2022, while individuals on SSI can expect $841. Couples collecting SSI can expect $1,261.
Anyone receiving SSI should have received their first check or payment on Dec. 30, 2021.
SSI goes out on the first of each month, but due to Jan. 1, 2022 being a holiday, it went out early.
The Social Security Administration sent notices to individuals in Dec., but if they did not get them they can check their Social Security account online.
