$1,400 – 4th Stimulus Check Update – Social Security, SSDI, SSI, VA 2022
“Even more unlike other federal income taxes, Congress has never adjusted the income thresholds that subject Social Security benefits to taxation since the tax became effective in 1984,” Johnson added. The League supports legislation to adjust the current income thresholds for Social Security. Last year, the League launched a petition aimed at granting another $1,400 4th stimulus check, for Social Security recipients, in order to deal with inflation. It doesn’t appear the proposal has gotten much momentum in Congress. “I (and/or my spouse) want Social Security recipients to receive a $1,400.00 emergency stimulus check to cope during this unprecedented inflationary year. Social Security benefits are one of the few types of income in retirement adjusted for inflation,” the petition says. “But soaring inflation has taken a toll on household finances of retired, ssi, ssdi, va, survivor and disabled Social Security recipients. In 2021 Social Security benefits increased by just 1.3 percent raising the average benefit by only about $20 a month. But about 86 percent of Social Security recipients surveyed say their expenses increased by much more than that amount.”
