U.S. retirees in full retirement age are in luck, at least a large percentage of them. The Social Security Administration will issue their January pensions soon. We are talking about retirees at age 67, that is, those who have applied for Full Retirement. But it is not the only thing, because the rest of the retirees and people with disabilities will also collect Social Security this day. Even so, they should be able to collect it next Wednesday, January 11.
The only requirement refers to the date of birth. In one week, specifically on January 11, Social Security will distribute Januarybenefits o pensioners born between 1 and 10. This means that we are facing the first payment of the month in the region. Therefore, the January payment has already been completed and will not be sent.
Social Security Payments in January
To check that you have not had any problems in January with your Social Security payments, here is the complete calendar of payments. You can verify that the Social Security Administration has your payment on the list if you know how to interpret the information correctly. This is the payment schedule for January:
January 11 This is the second Wednesday of the month. On this day, the Social Security Administration sends payments to those born between the 1st and 10th of the month. If you were born between those days, you should have your payment in your bank account by today.
January 18: The third Wednesday of the month. For beneficiaries born between the 11th and 20th of the month.
January 25: Fourth Wednesday of the month. This is the next payment. It is the last Social Security payment of the month in January. On this day, those born between the 21st and 31st of the month will receive the benefit.
Remember that you can activate Direct Deposit to immediately access the money sent to you by Social Security for your retirement. Otherwise it could take up to 3 days to reach your pocket.
It is worth noting that while the Social Security Administration consistently makes payments on time, there may be occasional delays or issues that arise. In the event that your payment takes more than three days to arrive after it has been sent by the SSA, you can contact them to report the issue and claim your benefit.
Another option is to check with your bank to see if there are any issues with your personal information that may be causing a delay. For example, if you have recently gotten married, divorced, or moved without updating your bank, they may hold your payment until they can verify your information. In any case, it is always a good idea to keep the SSA and your bank informed of any changes to your personal details to ensure that your payments are processed smoothly.
