Supplemental Security Income payments were sent out on Tuesday, March 1, meaning recipients should be seeing their checks in the mail very shortly. The average SSI payment has gone up from $587 to $621 – an increase of $34. Americans may get more if they live in a state that supplements their federal check. Amounts vary by state but, for example, New York offers an extra $87 a SSI recipients include adults and children with a disability or blindness who have income and resources below specific financial limits. Payments are also made to people age 65 and older without disabilities who meet the financial qualifications.
