Social Security checks will be distributed in early July. Over the last 12 months, the Consumer Price Index

for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) rose 1.0% in May and the all items index increased 8.6%.

The Social Security cost-of-living increase for 2022 is set at 5.9%, the highest since 1978. 

For Social Security beneficiaries, the increase went into effect on Jan. 1 

and for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) beneficiaries, it went into effect on Dec. 30.

The Social Security schedule for July is as follows:

Your payment is distributed on July 13 if your birthday falls between the 1st and 10th of the month.

If you were born between July 11th and July 20th, you will receive your payment on Wednesday, July 20th.

Your payment is distributed on Wednesday, July 27 if your birthday falls between the 21st and 31st.

If Social Security isn't enough to pay your basic living expenses, you may qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). 

A monthly SSI payment is sent to people with disabilities (or blindness) who meet certain financial requirements. Individuals 65 

and older with little or no income, assets, or resources may qualify for SSI. 

The Social Security payment you receive on July 1 will include both your Social Security and SSI benefits 

if you received Social Security before May 1997 or if you receive both Social Security and SSI benefits.
