Social Security Update: Seniors To Receive Money Worth Up To $4,194 This Month
Washington Examiner said the SSI program has offered financial assistance to individuals who qualify to help those with low incomes and resources. The amounts paid are determined on the recipient’s lifetime earnings.
Different from other benefits provided by the SSA, such as disability insurance or Supplemental Security Income, which program’s February payment was already received on Wednesday, are these retirement payments.
