Valentine’s Day Surprise: Social Security Announces $1,900 Payments for Eligible Recipients on February 14

The average Social Security benefit received by retirees in January was $1,909.01, which represents a 4.4% increase over the same month last year. 

The increase in payments was driven by a 3.2 percent Cost-of-living adjustment (COLA), along with the higher average salaries of retirees who started receiving benefits in the past year. 

Although the average payment hovers around $1,900, it’s important to note that the majority of beneficiaries receive a check that is not of this magnitude. 

In 2022, the average check size stood at $1,590, with only individuals in the top quartile receiving payments exceeding $1,900.
