Timely Payouts for January

Retired seniors born between the 11th and 20th of a month can anticipate their initial payment of 2024 in just five days, arriving on Wednesday, Jan. 17. Meanwhile, those born on or after the 21st will receive their payments on Jan. 24, following the distribution to those born on or before the 10th.

This round of payments reflects a 3.2% increase for 2024, a result of the annual cost-of-living adjustment announced in October.

Recipients should note that the age at which they retired, the amount contributed to Social Security, and the number of years in the system all impact the maximum payment. However, retirement age remains a primary factor.
