eligible recipients will get their first payment of $841 on December 1 and their second payment of $914 on December 30, for a total of $1,755 for the month.
Due to payments rising in 2023, partly in reaction to the rising yearly cost-of-living adjustments and to keep up with inflation,
, the second installment of December's payments is larger than the first.
One of three months during the year when recipients of Supplemental Security Income receive two payments is December.
April and September were the other two months this year with two installments each.
Couples that qualify will get two payments totaling $1,261 for the month of December; in 2023, the sum will rise to $1,371.
