2018 Social Security Disability Benefit Rises Slightly.

Americans receiving Social Security benefits in 2018 can expect to see the program’s largest payment increase in years, according to the trustees report.

In January, recipients will receive a $28 monthly increase in benefits, which, although amounts to just 2.2%, is much larger than the 0.3% increase in benefits recipients collected this year. In 2016 the program offered no payout increase. The average monthly payment for the program’s 61 million beneficiaries is $1,253.
