According to the Social Security Administration, eligible recipients will receive their first payment of $841 on December 1 and their second payment of $914 on December 30, for a total of $1,755 for the month. Due to payments increasing in 2023, the second installment of December's payments is higher than the first. This is partly because annual cost-of-living adjustments are increasing to keep up with inflation.

January, May, and October are among these months.
