The United States Social Security Administration’s schedule of payments is announced before the beginning of the year. The pattern for retirement, disability or blindness benefit payments is always the same. It repeats itself year after year and it is easy to know the dates of the payments well. When you know the dates for one year you can know the dates for the following year. Even so, you should take a good look at theSocial Security Administration’s official calendar every year to avoid making mistakes.
If you have already started collecting your Social Security benefit because you have received your Award Letter and have completed the entire process, the calendar is of interest to you. And this calendar is the same for people with retirement, blindness or disability benefits.
Calendar for collecting the retirement pension payment
The Social Security Administration sets the retirement payment schedule according to the beneficiaries’ birthdays. Therefore, not everyone who receives a retirement benefit has the money in their bank account on the same day. By knowing your birthday you will know the date the SSA will send you your retirement money each month.
These are the days on which Social Security sends the money. All of these days are Wednesdays. Each Wednesday belongs to a different group of people. Each group is organized according to their birthday, as mentioned above. Thus, people born between the 1st and 10th receive the benefit on the second Wednesday of each month. The third Wednesday of each month corresponds to birthdays between the 11th and 20th. Finally, the fourth Wednesday of the month is for people with birthdays between the 21st and 31st.
