The United States Social Security payment schedule follows basic rules, including Supplemental Security Income benefits in it. However, there are irregularities that change the schedule slightly in some months.
When those irregularities occur, some Supplemental Security Income recipients may get up to two checks in a single month. This is certainly a great advantage, although it doesn’t really mean that we are talking about extra money.
Getting one of these checks early means we are looking at an advance payment, that’s all. Therefore, at the end of the year the amount of money we will get from Social Security payments will be the same, just a little earlier.
Even so, it is true that having a check for Supplemental Security Income a few days earlier is a joy for many citizens. Being able to collect the SSI benefit before October means being able to use the money to pay for monthly expenses.
What not all Americans know is that even if we have SSI accepted, if we have not taken action beforehand we will not be able to get the payment early. In the case of not activating an option not only will we not get the payment early, but we might even get it later than the bill.
HOW TO AVOID THE DELAY IN THE SUPPLEMENTAL SECURITY INCOME EXTRA FOR SEPTEMBER
In this case, the collection method is the key point to get the money as soon as possible. This means that beneficiaries who have the fastest payment method activated will be able to receive a Supplemental Security Income benefit early.
The collection method we are talking about is Direct Deposit. With this method of receiving Social Security benefits, we will never have to wait a day to get checks. The money transfer is instantaneous, so we will receive the money on the same day that the Administration sends it.
So the group excluded from getting the extra Supplemental Security Income money for September is citizens without Direct Deposit. Those without this collection method may get the money later.
The Social Security Administration will send out the SSI check on the 29th day of September. This is because October 1st is a weekend. With Direct Deposit, you can get the money the same day. Without that, the money could arrive on October 2nd or 3rd, even the 4th.
This collection method is also useful for other benefits. So if you have a disability or retirement check, it is advisable to activate it so that you will never have to wait for it again..
