Social Security in the United States is a government program designed to provide income and financial protection to individuals in retirement, disability and in the event of the death of the breadwinner.
The Social Security program is funded by payroll taxes, paid by both employees and employers, and is administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA).
However, not everyone collects Social Security at the same time.
Who collects Social Security on February 22?
Your date of birth determines the week you collect Social Security. To find out who is eligible for a Social Security payment next Wednesday, February 22, 2023, you will need to know the following payment schedule:
- February 8 those born from the 1st to the 10th of each month.
- February 15 for those born from the 11th to the 20th of the month.
- And finally, on February 22, which is the next payment, those born from the 21st to the 31st of the month will be paid.
Therefore, if you were born between the 21st and 31st of any month, you will receive Social Security next Wednesday, February 22nd.
How to claim a late pension payment?
The general rule for Social Security payments is that the Administration always sends checks on time. However, there are times when we may receive our pension check late. In those cases there are several actions we can take.
The first is to contact our bank. Most of the time when we are late with payments the bank is responsible. The bank may hold our cheque for various reasons. Therefore, check with the bank first to make sure that everything is okay.
Finally, we can also contact the Social Security Administration. Remember to keep all your information up to date to avoid delays of any kind on your benefit payment check. Any weddings or moves should be reported to avoid receiving checks too late.
