Social Security checks are going to be available a day earlier this week. Here’s why

Date:

Two rounds of Social Security checks have been sent out so far in June, and two more are yet to be issued. If you began receiving Social Security benefits before May 1997, you should have already received your check. But note: If you’re expecting a check this week, you’ll get it a day early. We’ll explain why. Additionally, if you’re still waiting for your May check, it may also be that it hasn’t arrived yet.

The date you receive money depends on your birthday and the date you receive Social Security benefits. If you’re not sure, we’ll tell you the exact date.

How does the agency determine my Social Security payment date?

The Social Security Administration typically sends payments on the second, third, and fourth Wednesday of each month. The day you’ll get your check depends on your birthday.

  • If your birthday falls between the 1st and 10th of the month, your payment will be sent on the second Wednesday of the month.
  • If your birthday falls between the 11th and 20th of the month, your payment will be sent on the third Wednesday of the month.
  • If your birthday falls between the 21st and 31st of the month, your payment will be sent on the fourth Wednesday of the month.

SSI recipients typically receive payments on the first of each month, with a few exceptions, which we’ll explain below.

Will I receive both Social Security and SSI payments on the same day?

If you received Social Security benefits before May 1997, or if you get both Social Security and SSI, the payment schedule is different. Instead of receiving your payment on Wednesday, you will receive your Social Security payment on the third day of each month and your SSI on the first day of each month.

Payment dates change if the first or third day of the month falls on a weekend or holiday. For example, March 3 was on a weekend, so Social Security recipients received their March payment two days early, on March 1.

What if I don’t receive my Social Security check?

If your check doesn’t arrive on the date listed above — or doesn’t arrive at all — the Social Security Administration recommends waiting three additional mailing days before contacting. After that, you can speak to a representative at 800-772-1213. (The SSA notes that wait times are shorter Wednesday through Friday and between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. on weekdays.)

You can also access your Social Security benefits online.
