There are just a few days left before certain Social Security beneficiary recipients start receiving their monthly retirement payouts.
The Social Security Administration sends payments to retirees in three separate instalments, commencing on the second Wednesday of each month.
These payments are known as "waves."
The payments that are being provided on December 21 represent the second payment from the SSA this month.
According to the SSA, these payments are meant for Social Security claimants who were born between the 11th and 20th of a given month.
The amount of money that recipients of these checks will get may vary depending on a number of different circumstances.
