The calendar has flipped to 2024, beneficiaries who depend on Social Security Administration monthly checks will get a 3.2% benefit boost. February 01, 2024, is when recipients of Supplemental Security Income will get their February payment.
SSI Payment Date February 2024
It should go without saying that one must be informed about Social Security’s annual adjustments, and dates and modify their budget properly when managing their retirement.
This is particularly relevant especially because the answer isn’t always obvious and differs from person to person. As a result, we have assembled the February 2024 Supplemental Security Income benefit payment data.
When discussing the commencement date of the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payment in February 2024, the Social Security Administration (SSA) should inform everyone that the payment will be made on February 1st, 2024.
What is SSI and How does it work?
Millions of recipients, including retired workers and those with permanent disabilities, receive monthly payments from the Social Security Administration. The federal cash assistance program known as SSI is managed by the Social Security Administration.
SSI is available to those who are blind, disabled, have limited income sources, or are older than 65. Participants in this program get monthly money rewards to help with necessities. The amount you receive each month depends on some factors, including your living situation, assets, income, and others.
Supplemental Security Income Eligibility Requirements 2024
The Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program provides essential financial support to over two million older persons. Benefits from SSI may be available to you if you:
- If you are blind or handicapped, 65 years of age or older, and have limited income, you can apply for SSI.
- You must be a citizen of the United States or fulfil the qualifications for non-citizens.
- If you have submitted an online application for SSI then you are eligible.
- SSI is available to anyone who makes less than $1,971 per month; couples and parents who want to apply for children are eligible for higher income limitations.
- Bank account funds and automobiles are common resources. Your maximum available funds should be $2,000 for single people and $3,000 for couples. These figures rise by $2,000 if you are a parent applying for a kid.
- You must further demonstrate that during the month you are seeking, your monthly income from employment was less than $1,550 if you have a handicap. SSI recipients who are 65 years of age or older do not need to be disabled.
How much SSI benefit in 2024 will I receive?
When the cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) is applied, your 2024 SSI benefit will be 3.2% more than the previous year’s payout. The maximum monthly SSI payment in 2023 was $914 for single people and $1,372 for couples; in 2024, the maximum benefit is $943 for single people and $1,415 for couples.
These figures may be lowered by several variables, such as the state in which you reside if you live with others, and whether you have supplemental income.

What If my SSI benefit payment has not been received?
Federal law mandates Social Security benefits to be paid electronically via direct deposit or Direct Express Debit Mastercard. However, delays and other issues may still occur, making it crucial to know what to do in case of a delay. Get in touch with your bank or financial institution if your electronic payment is delayed.
Contact your local office or the Social Security Administration if money is lost, stolen, or missing. If you are still receiving paper checks, follow up with the Social Security Administration if the check isn’t received three business days after it was mailed.
