The Social Security Administration always sends out three different payments on the second, third and fourth Wednesday of the month. This time in October 2022 we have payments on the 12th, 19th and 26th. Each of these days the SSA will send the money to a different group of people. The only difference between collecting your benefit or not is the date of birth. At the end of the month, you will receive your pension, but it can be earlier or later.
Social Security payments calendar in October
As we mentioned before, we already know the official payment schedule of the Social Security Administration. With it, you will be able to control your monthly economy to pay all your bills without any inconvenience. These are the payment days for October:
2nd Wednesday of October. 12th day of the month. The Social Security Administration pays benefits to people born between the 1st and 10th of the month. This is the next payment, the first of October.
3rd Wednesday in October. 19th day of the month. People born between the 11th and 20th will receive their payment on this day. This is the second payment of the month.
4th Wednesday in October. 26th day of the month. This is the corresponding day for payments for people born between the 21st and 31st of the month.
Knowing this information you can now calculate when you will receive your Social Security payment in October.
Other SSA payments in October
Every month there are two payments on the SSA calendar. The first payment is the retirement or disability benefit itself. That benefit is paid on the second, third or fourth Wednesday of the month, as we noted a little above. On the other hand, there is also the Supplemental Security Income, a special payment for all those people who have a low income.
The Social Security Administration always sends the SSI payment on the 1st of each month, except on days when the 1st is a weekend or holiday. In October, this payment was not dated because the 1st was a weekend. Thus, the payment is sent on the last working day of September, the 30th.
