SSI recipients can look forward to their second increased payment next week.

The payments will go out on February 1, more than a month after beneficiaries saw their last payments on December 30.

SSI beneficiaries usually receive checks on the first of the month, but some months are different because of holidays or weekends.

This year, payments are worth $914, an increase from last year when Americans earned $841.

This is because of the cost-of-living-adjustment of 8.7 percent.

The COLA increase is meant to help Americans battle inflation each year.
