First of all it is necessary to remember that not all United States retirees will receive five Social Security checks in the month of March. Just because the Social Security Administration sends up to 5 different checks within the calendar month of March does not mean that pensioners will receive them. The maximum number of checks a U.S. pensioner could receive in March is 3, with some exceptions.
With this in mind, we should know that if we have an accepted Social Security benefit, we will receive our cheque. In addition to this, we could receive a couple of other checks during the month. This will be the case if we have Supplemental Security Income accepted. Otherwise, we may only get more than one check in March if there are individual exceptions.
However, it is important that we know the schedule of payments for the month of March. In order to do so, we only need to know our date of birth.
With this information we will know on what day Social Security will pay our retirement in the third month of the year. On what day will you receive your Social Security check in March? Will you receive more than one check or just one?
Social Security payment schedule for the month of March
The Social Security Administration will send out age and disability retirement benefit checks on the following days:
- March 8th.
- March 15th.
- March 22nd.
On these days, the Administration will pay Social Security checks to different groups of retirees. The first of these groups is composed of pensioners born between the 1st and 10th of the month. Second, the group receiving payment on the 15th of March is the group of retirees with birthdays between the 11th and 20th of the month.
Finally, the third group will be paid on the 22nd of March. This group includes pensioners born between the 21st and 31st of the month. It is important to remember that it does not matter the month of the year in which we were born to receive one of these checks. If we were born in May or April we can receive both the checks for March and the rest of the year.
In short, in order to know the exact day on which the Social Security Administration sends us each of the checks every month, we must know the day of our birthday. It is a very easy and fast way to know this information, so we will always know when the Administration will pay us our monthly check.
Other SSA payments in March
In addition to retirement payments, the Social Security Administration will send out other different payments pertaining to Supplemental Security Income. This benefit is once a month, but in the month of March there is an exception. The two days the SSA will send these checks are on the 1st and 31st of March.
If we have a Social Security benefit and Supplemental Security Income accepted, we will have three different checks during the month of March 2023. And if we activate Direct Deposit, we will get the money immediately without having to wait.
In total, we can have three checks in the month of March, but this does not mean that all Social Security beneficiaries will have all three checks by the end of the month. Remember that in order to have all three checks, we must have both Supplemental Security Income and the retirement pension. As for retirement, it doesn’t matter if it’s disability, age, or some other reason.
