Social Security benefits in the United States of America have a fixed schedule. This schedule helps pensioners get organized with their monthly money. For some people, the only source of income is the retirement or disability benefit, which is why it is so important to know in advance when the money will be available in their bank accounts.
September also has a double payment for Supplemental Security Income recipients. If you fall into this category, you will be able to receive a double payment this month, although you will not receive the corresponding payment in October.
Keep an eye on the September Social Security payment calendar. It is the best way to know if your benefit is close or not. This calendar is useful for retirement, disability or blindness benefits. In that sense, it doesn’t matter if you have applied for Early Retirement Age at 62 or Full Retirement Age at 67. The only thing that changes is the amount of money received in the check.
Social Security payment schedule for September
In total, there are five days in September where the Social Security Administration sends money to beneficiaries. However, one of the payments is in October, although you can have it available as early as the last day of September if you have Direct Deposit activated. The day of your birthday determines which week of the month you will receive your benefit.

What do I do if my payment is late?
In case your payment is late, you should contact your bank first. But before that, wait 3 days for the Social Security payment to arrive in your bank account. In the case that your bank is unable to help you, contact your local Social Security office for help with any claims regarding your benefit.
If you prefer, before going to a local office or calling by phone, check from My Social Security that all your information is correct. Any change in your life as your bank account, your surname for various reasons or move house must be updated. Change all your data so that you don’t lose your benefit.
