Social Security retirement checks will begin arriving very soon in 2023 to pensioners in the United States. Any senior with an accepted benefit will be able to enjoy one of these checks in as little as a week. However, not all retirees will be able to receive the first of these payments of the year. The Social Security Administration sends different payments to different groups. So only one group of retirees may receive this pension payment in just a few days.
The first Social Security retirement benefit payment will be on January 11. The retirees who will receive this payment are those born between the 1st and 10th of the month. This means that the rest of the retirees will receive their benefit on one of the following Wednesdays, January 18 or 25. The exact day will depend on the retiree’s date of birth.
It should be remembered, to avoid problems and misunderstandings, that the only thing that affects the day on which a retiree receives his or her payment is the day of birth. Thus, the month and year of birth are not so important when it comes to collecting the benefit. This means that a retiree who was born in January can collect his or her benefit in March, April and September. The same is true for the year. The only important data, therefore, is the day of the month.
Other social security payments in January
During January 2023, the Social SecurityAdministration will send checks of up to $4,555 to retirees on different days.
Second Wednesday of the month. 11th day of January. This is the next of the Social Security payments. Retirees born between the 1st and 10th will enjoy their subsidy check on this day.
Third Wednesday of the month. January 18th. Retirees born between the 11th and 20th of any month will receive their benefit on this day.
Fourth Wednesday of the month. 25th day of January. Last of the Social Security retirement benefitpayments for the month of January. This payment is for retirees born between the 21st and 31st of a month.
Following this calendar it is very easy to check the days on which retirees will receive their benefit during the month of January. In the following months, Social Security will also send the check to retirees on the second, third and fourth Wednesday of the month.
In addition to these payments, SSA will also send the Supplemental Security Income check to U.S. citizens with this payment. This payment is always on the 1st, except for months when the 1st is a holiday or weekend. In these cases, the Social Security Administration sends this additional payment on the immediately preceding business day.
