When are Social Security payments sent?
During the last or first days of the month, the SSA sends payments to SSI recipients and retirees who began receiving their benefits before May 1997.
The rest of the payments are sent according to the date of birth of the beneficiary. We share the schedule:
– On the second Wednesday of every month, payments are sent to beneficiaries with the date of birth between the 1st and the 10th.
On the third Wednesday, money is sent to those born between the eleventh and twenty-first.
On the fourth Wednesday, the beneficiaries’ checks are sent with a date of birth between the twenty-first and the thirty-first.
