Social Security Income: Sure thing! Approximately 7.4 million individuals receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) each month. If you’re among these beneficiaries, here’s what you need to know about when you’ll receive your February payment.
Since 1997, the Social Security Administration (SSA) has implemented a staggered payment system. Beneficiaries receive their checks or deposits on Wednesdays throughout the month, depending on their dates of birth.
Here’s how it works:
- Individuals born between the 1st and 10th of the month receive their payment on the second Wednesday.
- Those born between the 11th and 20th get paid on the third Wednesday.
- Beneficiaries with birth dates falling between the 21st and 31st receive their payment on the fourth Wednesday.
For those who started receiving SSDI benefits before May 1997, payments are issued on the 3rd of each month.
What date will SSDI checks be deposited?
Here are the specific payment dates for February:
- February 3rd: For beneficiaries who have been receiving benefits since 1997 or earlier.
- February 14th: For individuals born between the 1st and 10th of the month.
- February 21st: For those born between the 11th and 20th.
- February 28th: For beneficiaries born between the 21st and 31st.
If you’re also receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI), this benefit is paid on the 1st of each month.
What to do if you do not receive your payment on the scheduled date?
The Social Security Administration (SSA) suggests waiting until three mail days after the scheduled date before contacting the contact line or visiting your local Social Security office.
However, it’s also a good idea to reach out to your bank initially to check if there are any issues on their end that might be causing a delay in receiving your deposit.
