The Social Security Administration will pay new retirement and disability benefits to a large group of retirees in the next week. After the arrival of the new year, Social Security sends out, as is customary, checks on the second, third and fourth Wednesdays of the month. This makes it possible for United States SSA users to have good financial organization at home.
But not all retirees will receive payment on the upcoming 11th day of January, which is the first Social Security payment of the year. This payment will be only for users with an accepted benefit who have their birthday between the 1st and 10th of the month. In this sense, the month of birth of the retiree does not matter. Only the exact day of the birthday is important.
All other retirees born between the 11th and 20th and between the 21st and 31st will be able to collect their Social Security benefit in the coming weeks. Thus, their payments will arrive on the 18th and 25th of January, respectively. Following this calendar, there is no problem in controlling the expenses and income of each retiree.
When will I receive Social Security in January 2023?
With this information in mind, making the January 2023 payment schedule is really simple.
- January 11. Second Wednesday of the month. The Social Security Administration will pay the retirement benefit to users born between the 1st and 10th of the month.
- January 18. Third Wednesday of the month. Retirees, either age or disability, born between the 11th and 20th of the month will receive a check on this day.
- January 25. Fourth Wednesday of the month. Any retiree born between the 21st and 31st of the month may receive a Social Security check on this date.
Payments are always sent on time, so it is unusual to see delays in Social Security payments. Even so, there could be a possibility that these delays could appear, so it is important to know what to do in these cases.
What can I do if my pension check is late?
In order to fix problems with the delay in the collection of the Social Security benefit we must keep in mind that the most common delays are due to two main reasons.
- The bank holds our money.
- Our information in My Social Security Account is not complete.
If the bank has withheld our benefit, we should contact the corresponding bank directly. There are many reasons why the bank might withhold the benefit money, so we should talk to them directly to solve the problems.
As for the personal information in My Social Security Account, having it updated all the time will avoid unpleasant surprises. Any change in our life should be reported, such as a wedding, a move or even a divorce.
