The Social Security Administration sends all United States disabilitybeneficiaries a monthly check. The day on which these retirees receive one of these checks depends on several factors. Among these factors is date of birth.
So beneficiaries with a disability benefit born between the 1st and 10th of the month receive their money on one date. On the other hand, beneficiaries with birthdays between the 11th and 20th receive their check on another day. Finally, retirees with birthdays between the 21st and 31st receive the last of the checks for the month.
However, there is also another factor to consider in determining the day of receipt of the Social Security disability benefit. The year in which you applied for the benefit also plays a role in determining which day you will receive your disability benefit money.
All beneficiaries who applied for a benefit prior to 1997 receive their money on a different day. So if you have a disability benefit prior to that date, you may receive your benefit earlier than other retirees.
Which group of disability retirees receive the next Social Security?
The next group with a Social Security disability retirement benefitto receive the money is those with birthdays between the 21th and 30th of the month. Other than that, they must also have applied for the benefit after 1997. These two items are the only requirements to collect the next of the payments from the Social Security Administration.
All other retirees will get their check on a different day. It is also important to keep in mind that not only disability retirees can have this benefit in their pocket on this day. Any other type of retiree can cash the check if they meet the requirements.
So an age retirement beneficiary is eligible for the next of the Social Security checks if he or she was born between the 21th and 30th days and applied for the benefit after 1997.
Complete April Social Security Schedule
In addition to this payday, the Social Security Administration sends retirement money to other beneficiaries, whether they are on a disability benefit or not. To qualify for these payments, it is not necessary to have a specific benefit, as we discussed earlier.
The only thing that matters is to be within the dates of birthdays, as well as to have applied for retirement before or after 1997. These are all the days of the complete Social Security calendar in April 2023:
April 3rd. Payment for pre-1997 retirees, disability or otherwise.
April 12th. Post-1997 retirees whose birthday falls between the 1st and 10th of the month.
April 19th. Any beneficiary who applied for retirement after 1997 and has his or her birthday between the 11th and 20th of the month.
April 26th. Retirees with birthdays between the 21st and 31st receive a disability benefit check if they applied after 1997.
With this complete April calendar you can find out on which day you should collect your retirement or disability benefit. So if you have not received it on one of these days, you should claim your payment.
How do I claim a late disability benefit from Social Security?
When receiving a late Social Security disability payment, there are several things to do. Before claiming the late payment from the Social Security Administration, we must check the calendar. If we take a good look at the day of the payment and it is indeed a day in the past, then we can claim the money.
However, most of the time, the money is not late because of SSA, but for other reasons. Our bank may withhold disability benefits for a variety of reasons. Among them, we may have, for example, debts that we do not remember.
If we have debts in the bank, the bank will probably hold the money indefinitely. If we do not have any problems with the bank and the bank has not withheld the money, we should contact Social Security (SSA).
In order to get the disability benefit on time, it is better to activate Direct Deposit. However, before activating this payment method, we can contact Social Security by phone or go to a local office. Either way we can get help in finding out what the problem is that our money is being withheld.
