Users with disabilities who have a Social Security Supplemental Security Income payment accepted could soon be celebrating a new cheque. In just a few days, millions of Americans will have one of these new Social Security cheques in their pockets to spend SSI on whatever they need.
Not all citizens can access this payment, since it is only for a group of Americans who meet certain economic requirements. However, any user who has this benefit accepted will receive it on the same day.
Therefore, unlike Social Security retirement or disability benefit payments, SSI is always paid on the same day. It doesn’t matter what your birthday, date of birth, or anything else. Personal information is irrelevant in deciding the day on which a citizen will receive this payment.
So regardless of your birthday, the next day Social Security sends out SSI cheques you could receive it immediately. How long it takes depends largely on the collection method we have activated.
When does the Social Security Administration send the new SSI payment?
In the month of February 2023 there is no irregularity in the timing of any of the payments from the Social Security Administration. And that is why the SSI cheque will arrive when it is due. In that sense, at least the SSA will indeed send the cheque on the exact calendar day.
The day the Social Security Administration sends out the SSI cheque is today. February 1, 2023. On this day the SSA sends the cheque, but this does not mean that users will receive it directly. In order to do this, the citizen must have a specific collection method activated.
How to cash SSI fast?
SSI cheques arrive immediately to all Social Security users who have Direct Deposit activated. This is the fastest way to collect not only SSI, but any type of benefit offered by the government.
In this particular case, the payment date for Supplemental Security Income is always the 1st of the month, with some exceptions. When the 1st of the month falls on a weekend or holiday, the Social Security Administration sends out a cheque for this benefit on the immediately preceding business day.
In conclusion, the most common payment schedule is for SSI to arrive on the 1st of the month with Direct Deposit activated, but there are months in 2023 when this is not the case:
The rest of the months of the year have the SSI payment day as the 1st. And remember that you can receive this payment or any other Social Security payment on the same day it is sent as long as we have the Direct Deposit payment method activated.
Other Social Security payments in February
During the month of February, the Social Security Administration will send new checks to other sectors. In addition to SSI payments, the SSA will pay retirement and disability benefits on the following days:

On the first of these days, retirees born between the 1st and 10th of the month will receive the benefit.

Finally, on the fourth Wednesday of February, retirees with birthdays between the 21st and 31st of the month will receive their retirement benefit.
