The latest monthly Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payment, distributed on Friday, reached millions of beneficiaries. Individuals, grappling with a severe disabling condition and limited income, received up to $943, as reported by the Social Security Administration.

The next installment is scheduled for Monday, April 1, just over four weeks away.

To qualify for SSI payments, an individual must be partially blind or have physical or mental conditions severely limiting daily activities for at least 12 months or leading to death.

The maximum payment varies based on filing categories: Individual, joint, or as an essential person.

Individuals can receive up to $943 monthly. Couples filing jointly can receive up to $1,415 per month. Essential persons, providing necessary care to SSI recipients, can receive up to $472 monthly.

These amounts represent a 3.2% increase from 2023 due to inflation.

This category is for individuals residing with SSI recipients and offering essential care.

SSI payments are supplementary to regular Social Security benefits for those eligible for both. However, not every recipient receives the maximum amount. Filers can use the SSA’s calculator for personalized estimates.
