IN just four days, Americans will receive checks worth $1,657.
However, not everyone will receive them at the same time, as a person’s birthday will determine when they should expect their check.
Social Security checks will be distributed every second and fourth Wednesday of each month.
Some people will have to wait a little longer for their monthly benefits if they were born at the end of a month.
Those with birthdays between the first and tenth day of a month should expect their checks on the second Wednesday of that month.
Similarly, those with birthdays between the 11th and 20th of the month should receive their payment on the third Wednesday.
Finally, for people born between the 21st and 31st, their payment will be available on the fourth Wednesday of the month.
For example, the installments for the month of April will be distributed on the 13th, 20th and 27th.
May installments will be distributed on the 11th, 18th and 25th.
Checks are sent to reflect the updated cost of living (COLA) and inflation.
The re-determination of the payment was based on data from the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage and Clerical Workers (CPI-W)
This is the largest annual increase in 40 years, according to The Republic Monitor website.
This updated payment is for retirees enrolled in Social Security benefits and COLA, according to the MARCA website.
Those who are only enrolled in SSI benefits will see a $47 increase in their monthly payments.
For last year, the maximum amount for SSI was $794 while the new maximum is $841.
The increase in SSI will affect more than 7.8 million Americans while approximately 70 million Americans will be recipients of the $1,657 checks according to the websites mentioned above.
