Millions of Americans across the country are about to receive their first check for Social Security Income and millions as well will receive a $120 boost in the Supplemental Security Income.

The first check of Social Security Income (SSI) for 2023 will be released on Feb.1 worth $914 this is after they missed receiving their checks this January. The SSI is usually released every 1st day of the month but since Jan.1 was a holiday, it was delivered earlier.
