This is the final Social Security payment of the month.

This year, retired workers have seen a boost of $92 on average as their payments have risen from $1,565 to $1,657.

The average monthly payment for couples has risen from $2,599 to $2,753 – a jump of $154.

Benefits increased in line with the cost-of-living-adjustment (COLA) of 5.9%, which came into effect on January 1.

What is COLA?

The COLA is calculated based on data from the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W), which measures changes in the cost of popular goods and services.

The maximum monthly Social Security payment is $4,194 but retirees must have worked in Social Security approved jobs for at least 35 years in order to get this.

If you work fewer years, the zeros that you accumulate will affect the amount you receive, according to the Social Security Administration.

To get the maximum benefit, seniors must also have been a high earner throughout their time in employment.

Plus, to get the max amount, Americans must wait until they turn 70 before they start collecting the benefits.

Retirees residing in 13 states will get less cash from their Social Security checks due to an extra tax that’s paid to the Department of Revenue.

It affects seniors in Colorado, Connecticut, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, and West Virginia.

Many low-income claimants are exempt from state taxes in most of the states, but it could put a dent in the checks of middle and upper-income earners.

Millions of retirees get Social Security benefits but not all Americans are eligible.

Generally, if you move outside the country for retirement, you can still get the payments.

But, retirees in Cuba and North Korea are restricted from receiving the benefits, as are those in countries such as Azerbaijan, Belarus, Moldova, and Tajikistan.

Some workers who paid into other retirement systems might not be eligible for Social Security benefits.
