The days when the United States Social Security Administration sends out pension checks are always days of celebration. Many families live on the pension alone, even though it is not recommended. It is always a very good idea to live on some extra income, as sometimes the Social Security check may not be enough. Still, the day a person with a disability receives it is a reason to rejoice. Not all people with disabilities receive this check, because before you can start collecting your pension, you must apply for it and the Social Security Administration must send you the Award Letter with the acceptance.
In addition to this, the Social Security payment day is not only for people with disabilities. Also old age pensioners can receive this benefit on the 9th of November. On the second Wednesday of the month, the SSA will send the payment to all retirees with an accepted benefit who were born between the 1st and 10th of the month. Therefore, if your birthday falls between those days, you should be able to receive your check in the next few days.
If your birthday is later, you will have to wait a bit to get your Social Security paycheck. The next payment days are the 16th of November and the 23rd of November. On the first of these days, retirees born between the 11th and 20th could receive their benefit. On the second of these days, retirees with birthdays between the 21st and 31st will receive their retirement or disability benefit.
My Social Security is not arriving, what can I do?
If your Social Security money does not arrive in your bank account within three days of the mailing date, you may have a problem. The SSA always sends the money on time, but it may take a few days for it to reach your bank account. In case you still do not have the money after 3 days, you should contact your bank to ask if there is a problem.
On the other hand, a quick method to get your Social Security money automatically is Direct Deposit. Through this method, which does not require a bank account, retirees have their money automatically. They don’t have to wait for anything to have their benefit money in their pocket. It’s a good method because retirees can have the check for up to $4,194 a month without waiting even a minute. And you can use this method just like a regular debit card to pay for all your regular purchases.
