July 2024 SSA Benefits: Understanding Retirement and SSI Payments

3 Min Read

Understanding the benefits provided by the Social Security Administration (SSA) can be crucial for financial planning, especially for those eligible for multiple payments in a single month. In July 2024, some individuals may receive both retirement benefits and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), providing an additional financial boost.

Two Types of Social Security Payments

Retirement Payments

Retirement payments from the SSA are typically issued once a month, varying based on the recipient’s specific group classification. These payments support retirees based on their years of work and contributions to Social Security.


Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

Unlike retirement benefits, SSI is designed to assist elderly, disabled, and low-income individuals with additional financial support. SSI payments are independent of retirement benefits and can be received concurrently if eligibility criteria are met.
