Any citizen of the United States has the ability to know exactly when his or her Social Security payment is due. Even before retirement, you can find out what day you will receive your pension. All you need to know is your birthday. Since the calendar is maintained to avoid confusion, the method will remain the same years from now, unless there is a sudden change. So all Americans can perfectly control the day on which they will receive their Social Security. This means that they can have complete control over their economy and finances.
In this sense, there are three clearly differentiated groups in Social Security. On the one hand, one group receives the money on the 2nd Wednesday of the month. The second group receives the money on the third Wednesday of the month. The last group always receives the money on the fourth Wednesday of the month. To find out which group you belong to, just check your birthday. Retirees born between the 1st and 10th belong to the first group. American seniors born between the 11th and 20th belong to the second group. The last group is made up of retirees born between the 21st and 31st of the month.
The next of the Social Security payments is the last one for the month of December. This means, therefore, that after this payment we will have to wait until December to receive another one. As you can see from the information previously provided, the Social Security Administration will send the payment on the 28th of December, the fourth Wednesday of the month. The beneficiaries who will receive this payment are retirees born between the 21st and 31st of the month.
Social Security and December payments
With the December 28th payment being the last Social Security payment this month, it is normal for retirees to look ahead to December. This month the SSA sends up to 5 payments. However, not all retirees will be able to receive these payments. Some of them are Supplemental Security Income.
- On December 1, SSA sends Supplemental Security Income.
- On December 14th SSA will send the benefit to retirees with birthdays between the 1st and 10th of the month.
- On December 21st the Social Security Administration pays the benefit to retirees with birthdays between the 11th and 20th.
- December 28th. This is the last retirement payment for December. It is for retirees born between the 21st and 31st of the month.
- December 30th. This day’s payment actually pertains to the January SSI benefit. It is the last payment the SSA sends out for the year.
After that, the 2023 payments begin, so it’s the start of a new year for the Social Security Administration and retirees.
What can I do to get Social Security quickly?
There are two main ways to receive your Social Security payment. The first of these methods is through your bank account. The downside to this method of collection is that it can take up to 3 days for the money to appear.
However, there is a method that does allow us to receive the Social Security money immediately. Thanks to Direct Deposit we will not have to wait to receive the monthly pension amount. This is a great advantage over the bank account.
