Social Security check-receiving days are good days for retired United States citizens. Each time a retiree receives a new subsidy check they can do a variety of different things with that money. This is an advantage in the American pension system, as it allows retirees to have a break while still being able to pay their bills, debts and interest with their Social Security check.
In this regard, the Social Security payment schedule ensures that the day on which retirees receive these checks is known to perfection. Well, it is true that the SSA announces the day on which it sends the checks, but it can take several days for the checks to clear. Even so, there is a way to get the payment immediately in your pocket. However, most retirees receive the money through their bank account, so it can take up to 3 days for Social Security to arrive.
As for this month’s checks, it is curious to see that the Social Security Administration will send up to 5 different checks. Each of these checks goes to a different group of people, but there are retirees who can get up to 3 of them. How many could you get?
Why Social Security sends out 5 checks in December
The reason for this peculiar situation is an irregularity in the calendar. Social Security always sends Supplemental Security Income payments on the 1st of each month. This is always the case, with the exception of months in which the 1st of the month is a holiday or weekend, as is the case in January 2023. For this reason, we have one more check in the month of December.
These are the days on which the Social Security Administration will send checks in December.
December 1st. First payment of the month. This is the December SSI payment.
