Their next check will land on Wednesday, June 15.

Finally, as previously mentioned, everyone with birthdays on and after the 21st will see theirs on the fourth Wednesday of each month.

The payments for 2022 have risen on average by $92.

This is thanks to the 5.9% COLA adjustment that tried to help seniors keep up with inflation.


Couples saw an average increase from $2,599 in 2021 to $2,753 in 2022.

The most anyone will see in Social Security benefits is $4,194.

What you receive is based on your 35 highest earning years. The age you are when you retire matters as well.
