This will be the third month in 2022 that those collect benefits see the 5.9% COLA increase.

While it’s the highest increase in recent history, inflation has passed 7.5% and Medicare costs increased.

SSDI and Social Security benefits payment dates

Social Security is commonly collected by seniors once they retire in their 60s.

Which day you get it depends on what day of the month you were born.

The checks are sent the second, third, and fourth Wednesdays of each month.
