In the coming weeks, the Social Security Administration will send new payments to millions of retirees who already have an accepted retirement benefit. However, this payment will not be sent to all beneficiaries, but only to a group of them. In order to receive this payment, a requirement must be met.
This requirement is not related to the reason for retirement, as many people think. That is to say, it does not matter if we receive our Social Security check because we have a disability or because we retire due to age. So a citizen who has one of these payments will be paid the same as one who is in the other group.
Undoubtedly, this method is the best way to classify the payments of retirees. The data that the Social Security Administration takes in order to determine which group a pensioner belongs to is his or her birthday. This information is enough to know which group of retirees we belong to. Will you be receiving your next Social Security check?
Who gets the next Social Security payment?
Only one group of retirees will be able to collect the next Social Security check in April 2023. Within this group we can find the beneficiaries born between the 1st and 10th of the month. These are the retirees of the first group. It should be remembered that there are two other groups that will receive their check in the following weeks.
So if you were born between these two days, you will be able to collect your check in a very short time. If you have not received your check in the previous month, there is still time to claim your payment and get your check quickly and efficiently. Contact Social Security at 1 (800) 772-1213 if you are in this situation.
How do I cash my pension check?
To collect the retirement pension we have two different methods. These are the ways in which we can receive any payment from Social Security:
- Bank account deposit. This method is the most common, although not necessarily the most efficient. Receiving any Social Security payment through a bank deposit can take up to 3 days.
- Direct Deposit. Undoubtedly the fastest and most secure method of receiving any type of SSA benefit. Both pension payments and SSI payments can come through this method. It is immediate, so we don’t have to wait a day for the money to arrive.
Each citizen should choose the method they like best in order to receive their monthly Social Security check. There is no obligation to have one of these two methods, so we can choose our favorite one without any problems.
Complete Social Security Schedule for April 2023
Social Security payments will arrive throughout the month of April on the following days:
- April 12th.
- April 19th.
- April 25th.
The first of these days is the next Social Security payment date. This payment is for beneficiaries born between the 1st and 10th of the month. As for the second of these days, April 19, it is the check for retirees with birthdays between the 11th and 20th of the month. Finally, the 25th of April is the day on which beneficiaries born between the 21st and 31st of the month will receive their benefit.
Remember that the method of payment is critical in order to have the money in your pocket on time. If we do not activate Direct Deposit we must add three days to this calendar to calculate the approximate day of receipt of the Social Security money.
Why no SSI in April?
Social Security payments for Supplemental Security Income recipients are always sent on the 1st of each month. This is the case for all regular months, but there is one exception. When the 1st of the month is a holiday or weekend, the payment is made on the immediately preceding business day.
For this reason, there is no SSI payment in April, although there is in fact a payment for this month. There is a Supplemental Security Income payment but it will be sent in March. To be more precise, this check will be paid on the 31st day of March 2023.
So if you have this benefit, you already know that you could receive it a few days earlier than usual, especially if you have Direct Deposit activated. With this method you will be able to enjoy your benefit on the 31st of March.
