Millions of United States citizens will be a little more financially relieved tomorrow. The Social Security Administration will send the first group of beneficiaries their subsidy check. And the SSA will send it regardless of whether you are a former retired worker or a person with a disability. These benefits are the same for everyone, the only thing that differs is the maximum amount of money.
In this regard, the average retirement benefit is $1,666. Therefore, many people will collect a check close to that amount. This news is perfect for those people who have to pay their rent, mortgage or bills this week. So if you were born between the 1st and 10th of the month, you will soon be receiving your retirement or disability benefit in your bank account.
Social Security Calendar for September
The days on which the Social Security Administration sends money to beneficiaries in September are as follows:
Second Wednesday of the month: September 14. For persons born between the 1st and 10th of the month.
Third Wednesday of the month: September 21. For persons born between the 11th and 20th of the month.
Fourth Wednesday of the month: September 28. For persons born between the 21st and 31st of the month.
Day 1 of the month: Social Security sent the September SSI payment on the 1st of the month.
30th of the month: On this day, SSA sends the October SSI payment, since the 1st of the month is a weekend.
Supplemental Security Income payments are only for those people who have a lower income. Therefore, not everyone can apply for this benefit. To find out if you can get this benefit, use Social Security’s BEST tool.
What do I do if my payment is late?
Social Security payments can take up to 3 days to appear in your bank account. If after those three days you still have not received the money, the first thing to do is to contact your bank. They should be able to assist you and solve any possible problems. If there are any changes in your life lately, such as a wedding or divorce, they may affect your personal information and therefore cause your bank to withhold your payment.
If after talking to your bank you haven’t been able to get a solution, contact your nearest local branch. You can also check through My Social Security that all your details are correct before claiming from your bank and the SSA. This advice works for both subsidy payments and SSI payments.
