Understand Changes to Social Security Benefits in 2023


Join OneOp on Tuesday, March 7, 2023 at 11:00 AM ET as we provide important information about the basics of the Supplemental Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs and the application process. RSVP to join at: Social Security Benefits in 2023.

According to the Social Security Administration (SSA) approximately 70 million Americans will see an 8.7% increase in their Social Security benefits and SSI payments in 2023. On average, Social Security benefits have increased by more than $140 per month since the start of the new year.

SSI provides critical financial help to aged, blind, and disabled people who have limited income and resources. SSDI pays disability benefits to you and certain family members who meet our definition of disability if you worked long enough – and recently enough – under Social Security.

Rhonda Romero, SSA Public Affairs Specialist and webinar presenter will identify 2023 social security programs changes and provide participants a basic understanding of SSI/SSDI insurance programs. She will also identify what are the non-medical eligibility requirements for each program and how to file an application for SSI/SSDI and what to expect during the application process.
