Supplemental Security Income Allowances are generally paid on the first day of each month. However, if the first one falls on a weekend or a holiday, benefits are granted on the last working day of the previous month.
The Social Security Administration recently shared a link on Twitter to its 2022 Social Security Payment Schedule. May 2022 SSI benefits will go into bank accounts on Friday, April 29, since May 1 is a Sunday.
October 1, 2022 is Saturday, so SSI payments will be made on September 30, 2022. Every other month, beneficiaries will receive SSI on the first day of the month.
When will Social Security benefits appear in 2022?
If you started receiving Social Security benefits before May 1997, or if you are receiving both SS and SSI, you will receive Social Security benefits on the third day of each month, unless the third day falls on a weekend in December.
If your Social Security benefits did not begin before or after May 1997, the due date depends on your date of birth. If you were born between the first and tenth of each month, you will receive your Social Security deposit on the second Wednesday of each month. Those born between 11th and 20th will receive benefits on the third Wednesday, and those born between 21st and 31st will receive benefits on the fourth Wednesday.
For beneficiaries who receive paper checks, the Social Security Administration asks that you wait three postal days before checking the status of your payment if you do not receive it by the scheduled date.
