Date of payment for social security disability is based on one’s date of birth. In other words, different people receive their social security disability benefits on different days. Payment is not done on one single day. This payment mode ensures smooth operation and efficiency. Payment for each month is received the following month. For example, if you receive a check in May, it will be for April allowances, not May. Your payment date is usually given to you when you apply for social security benefits. If the benefits are going to a survivor, they are told of when to expect them during application as well.
Those born between 1st and 10th of whichever month receive their social security benefits on the second Wednesday of the month. Those born between 11th and 20th receive theirs on the third Wednesday of the month. Those born between 21st and 31st receive their benefits on the fourth Wednesday of the month. So, all payments are made on Wednesdays; one only has to remember what week theirs falls in. The date of payment is fixed, meaning it will not be changed. However, special circumstances warranting a change of date are considered.
If the social security disability benefits are going to a beneficiary, assuming the registered contributor has passed on; the payment date will be determined by the account holder’s date of birth. For example, if the beneficiary is a child, their departed father’s date of birth is what will be used to determine their day of payment, not theirs. Some people receive both Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits and Social Security benefits. In this case, their payment comes in separately, on two different days of the month. Payment for Supplemental Security Income is made on the 1st of the month while that of Social Security is made on the 3rd.
