In the United States, if you are entitled to a Social Security benefit, you receive it every month. The Social Security Administrationalways announces payment dates at the beginning of the year. From then on we just have to follow the calendar to see when we will receive our amount. If you have a Full Retirement Age and you were born at the beginning of the month, the next Social Security payment is yours.
However, don’t worry if you don’t meet these two requirements. Regardless of the type of retirement you have, you will receive your Social Security on September 14 if you were born between the 1st and 10th of the month. On the other hand, the final amount of the benefit will change depending on your years worked, your retirement age and your salary as a worker.
When does Social Security send the benefit?
To answer this question, it is necessary to know when you were born. From there, it is easy to know the date of payment of the Social Security amount. If you were born between the 1st and 10th of the month, you will receive your benefit on the second Wednesday of the month. For those born between the 11th and 20th of the month, Social Security will send the payment on the third Wednesday of the month. Finally, the fourth Wednesday of the month corresponds to those born between the 21st and 31st.
Here are the payment days for September:
Second Wednesday of the month: September 14th.
Third Wednesday of the month: September 21st.
Fourth Wednesday of the month: September 28th.
It is important to remember that the Social Security Administration sends the payments on these days, but they may take a while to arrive. It depends on your bank and whether or not you have Direct Deposit activated. Wait three days after the money is sent before contacting your bank or your local office to inquire about the situation.
