Many retirees are in luck because the United StatesSocial Security Administrationwill be sending out a new payment soon. To be more precise, they will only have to wait until September 21 to receive it. However, not all retirees will receive this payment from the Social Security Administration. The money is always sent in 3 different groups and this week’s payment is for the second of these groups.
To find out if you are in the group for the next Social Security payment you only need to know your date of birth. Payments are divided between those born between the 1st and 10th of the month, those with birthdays between the 11th and 20th and finally, beneficiaries born between the 21st and 31st. The second of these groups will receive Social Security payments on September 21.
Social Security payments in September
There are several Social Security payments in September. In addition to retirement or disability benefits, there is also Supplemental Security Income. This last type of payment is only for people with low incomes, so if that is your case you can apply for it to have more purchasing power. The September payment dates are:
September 1: September SSI payment.
September 14: Social Security retirement payment for those born 1st-10th of the month.
September 21: Second retirement payment of the month. This payment is for those born 11th-20th of the month.
September 28: Third payment of the month. This payment is the one pertaining to the retirement or disability benefit. It is received by those born between the 21st and 31st of the month.
September 30: October SSI benefit. The Social Security Administration sends this payment in September because October 1 is a weekend.
Delayed retirement payments
Delayed payments from the Social Security Administration are not very common. If you have a delay in your benefit payment, it is probably due to problems with your bank. The bank can hold your retirement money for a variety of reasons, so before contacting the SSA, call your bank first.
In any case, if your bank does not solve your problems, call the SSA directly. Your nearest SSA office will be able to resolve any problems related to your situation. Don’t forget to update all your information, as any incorrect information can cause both the bank and the Social Security Administration to withhold the money indefinitely. In addition to this, check that your benefit is accepted before claiming.
