The United States Social SecurityAdministration’s payment schedule follows an established pattern every month for Supplemental Security Income. However, there are times when that pattern is completely different due to irregularities in the month’s calendar. In those cases, some benefit payments may change days.
These situations can result in a double Supplemental Security Income payment in some months. This can be great news for retirees who collect this check. Since this benefit is for the beneficiaries who need it the most, having the check early can be very welcome news among them.
Now that summer is getting closer and many Americans want to plan their vacations, receiving Supplemental Security Income early can be a great relief. While it is true that the final amount of money will be the same, being able to receive it earlier means that they can better organize their household finances.
Schedule of Supplemental Security Income payments in June
The Supplemental Security Income payment arrives twice a month to beneficiaries in the United States. In the month of June we have this irregularity in the calendar, so any SSI beneficiary will receive a check for this benefit twice in this month.
However, remember that this does not mean we get extra money. That is, if our Supplemental Security Income benefit is $350 a month between June and July we will have $700 and no more. We will not have $1,050 between these two months because of the irregular situation.
The payments will be made in June on these two days:
The first of the payments pertains to the June Supplemental Security Income. The second of these payments will actually be from the July payment of this benefit. The payment is earlier because the 1st of July is a weekend.
Other June Social Security Payments
In addition to the two Supplemental Security Income payments, the Social Security Administration will send four other checks to Social Security beneficiaries. Each of these checks will go to a specific group of beneficiaries who meet certain requirements.
The first payment for these groups will be on June 2. This payment is only for beneficiaries who applied for retirement before 1997. It does not matter the amount or the time of retirement. It is only important to have applied for the benefit before that year.
After that payment day, the Social Security Administration will pay benefits to beneficiaries after 1997. These payments are sent on three different days. In June those days will be the 14th, 21st and 28th. The first payment is for those born between the 1st-10th days. The second payment is for retirees with birthdays between the 11th and 20th. Finally, retirees with birthdays between the 21st and 31st collect their check on the last of the above days.
Remember that these calendar days are when the Social Security Administration sends the money. In order to receive it exactly on these days, it is necessary to activate Direct Deposit. To receive Supplemental Security Income, we need to do the same.
