This week is the last week that the Social Security Administration sends out payments for United States seniors. It is also the day for payments for people with disabilities. Anyone who has a Social Security benefit and meets a requirement today will be able to collect their monthly check. The only requirement retirees must meet to collect today is to have a birthday between the 21st and 31st. In this sense, it does not matter if they are seniors, people with disabilities or with a retirement age of 62. The only important piece of information is the date of birth.
If you are clear about this information, the other is really basic: having an accepted benefit. If your benefit is pending, you will not receive it today. You will have to wait until the Social Security Administration fully accepts your subsidy. As soon as the benefit is accepted, you will start receiving it in the following month. So if you have an accepted benefit and meet the birthday requirement, you will know when you will receive your benefit.
In this sense, your benefit will arrive in your bank account if you were born between the days mentioned above. However, you will have to wait up to 3 days for the payment to appear in your bank account. This is unless you have Direct Deposit activated, but not all seniors have this Social Security system activated. If you simply have your bank account, you will have to wait a little longer, although sometimes it also arrives directly.
Social Security payment schedule for October
Although this is the last payment of October, the Social Security Administration sent other payments this month. Depending on your date of birth, you should have received your benefit on the second or third Wednesday of the month. That is, on the Wednesdays immediately preceding. This is the Social Security payment schedule for October:
- Second Wednesday of the month. 12th day of October. Social Security payment for persons born between the 1st and 10th of the month.
- Third Wednesday of the month. 19th day of October. On this day, seniors born between the 11th and 20th of the month receive their subsidy.
- Fourth Wednesday of the month. 26th day of October. Last day on which the Social Security Administration sends the age and disability retirement payment. This payment is for people born between the 21st and 31st.
Therefore, as of today all retirees should have their October benefit. At least the Social Security Administration has already sent all the payments for this month.
