SSI beneficiaries: You will get another check next week. know why


If you’re a Supplemental Security Income beneficiary, you should have received this month’s check as early as May 1. You can also expect to receive another check later this month. We’ll explain why you’re getting two payments in May and when to expect the second payment. (Also, did you know you may get a boost in SSI payments later this year?)

SSI benefits are administered by the Social Security Administration and are paid to eligible recipients with limited income and resources and to people who are blind, age 65 or older, or have a qualifying disability. Children who are blind or disabled may also receive SSI.

If you’re new to receiving benefits or planning to apply for SSI soon, we’ll list all the dates you can expect to receive your money for the rest of 2024. For more information, here’s how to apply for your state’s TANF program and how to apply for Social Security for your child.

When will I get SSI money every month?

Here’s when you can expect to receive your SSI payments via direct deposit.


  • Wednesday, May 1
  • Friday, May 31 (for June)
  • Monday, July 1
  • Thursday, August 1
  • Friday, August 30 (for September)
  • Tuesday, October 1
  • Friday, November 1
  • Friday, November 29 (for December)

Why am I getting two SSI payments in May?

The Social Security Administration typically distributes SSI checks on the first of each month. There are some exceptions to the payment schedule.

1. If the first of the month is a holiday.
2, If the first day of the month is on a weekend.

Since June 1 is on Saturday, the June payment is being made a day early. This means your June payment will come on Friday, May 31, which also means you won’t get any extra payment in June.

If I receive other Social Security benefits, will I get those early too?

No. If you get other Social Security benefits, you’ll still get them on the usual scheduled day, because those payments are due on Wednesdays. Here’s when May payments will arrive.

May 3: Social Security payments for people who received Social Security before May 1997.

May 8: Social Security payments for people with birthdays between the 1st and 10th of any month.

15 May: Social Security payments for people with birthdays between the 11th and 20th of any month.

22 May: Social Security payments for people with birthdays between the 21st and 31st of any month.

Get other Social Security benefits? Here’s the Social Security payment schedule and the Social Security Disability Insurance payment schedule. Also, here’s a Social Security cheat sheet.
