Social Security Shuffle: 3 Waves of December Payments Incoming! 

Millions of US retired seniors will receive their December Social Security payments in three waves.

The 1st wave is on Dec 13, 2nd wave on Dec 20, and 3rd wave on Dec 27.

The maximum payment is $4,555 for those who retired at 70.

Payment amounts depend on age at retirement and years of contributions.

Recipients can estimate their payments using the SSA's calculator.

Payments will increase by 3.2% in January due to inflation.

This increase applies to all Social Security payments, including retirement and disability.

The SSA may not be able to give full payments by 2034 due to rising retirees and fewer workers.
