Tracking Irregular Payments
During such times, SSI payment dates can change entirely, but keeping track of these alterations is manageable. The crucial step in such cases involves consulting the official payment schedule provided by the Social Security Administration. This is essential because the timing of SSI checks can occasionally prove unpredictable.
Recently, retirees expecting their new SSI payment have faced a delay of over a month. Since September 29th, the Social Security Administration has not disbursed checks for this benefit, which is undoubtedly a significant concern for many Americans.
Consistency at Year-End
Regardless of the specific payment dates selected by the Social Security Administration, it is important to note that, over the course of a year, beneficiaries will receive a total of 12 SSI payments if their application for Supplemental Security Income is approved. Therefore, there is typically no need to be overly concerned unless the funds are urgently required.
Eligibility for the New SSI Payment
The new Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payment is available to Americans who have previously had their SSI benefits approved. This payment is not universal; it is exclusively for individuals with an approved SSI claim.
Arrival of SSI Payments
In contrast to retirement payments, there are no specific criteria or subgroups for Supplemental Security Income recipients. The Social Security Administration dispatches all SSI checks simultaneously.
The $914 payment, inclusive of the 2023 8.7% COLA adjustment, will be deposited into the accounts of all eligible Americans with Direct Deposit on the 1st of the month. Those who have not set up Direct Deposit will receive their SSI funds within three days after the disbursement.
Combining SSI Payments with Retirement Benefits
Many Americans contemplate whether they can receive both Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments and retirement benefits concurrently. The answer is affirmative; these two types of payments are fully compatible and are often disbursed together.
Nonetheless, it is important to remember that each payment has its designated mailing day. SSI payments are scheduled for November 1st, while the payment dates for retirement benefits depend on various factors.
- Retirees with pre-1997 benefits will receive their payments on November 3rd.
- Those with benefits initiated after that year will have their payments distributed on up to three different dates.
- Individuals born between the 1st and 10th of the month will collect Social Security on November 8th.
- Post-1997 retirees born between the 11th and 20th of the month will receive their payments on November 15th.
- Finally, payments for those born between the 21st and 31st of the month will be made on November 22nd.
