Is that time of the month again, one more Wednesday goes by and that means another payment goes out to some Social Security beneficiaries.
Later this year, Social Security beneficiaries will see a letter arrive, that will notify them of how their benefits will increase for 2023, detailing what will be their benefit rate next year, where the cost-of-living-adjustment or COLA will make them see the biggest jump in the past 40 years.
Who will receive a SS check for up to $1,682 today?
The SSA has sent out three payments in September, with the first one going to those who receive Supplemental Security Income or SSIwhile the second and third ones went to Social Security beneficiaries.
This Wednesday, those Social Security beneficiaries who were born between the 11th and the 20th of their birth month will see their payment arrive, as this is the third Wednesday of the month.
Those who have been receiving Social Security benefits since before May 1997 and those who receive Social Security and SSI benefits have a different payment schedule, receiving their SS funds on the third date of the month, while the SSI payment arrives on the first day of the month, except when it lands on a weekend, in that case it is paid on the Friday before.
This is what you have to do if you don’t receive your payment
If you did not receive your Social Security payment on the expected date, the Social Security Administration recommends to wait for three mailing days after the original date and then get in touch with them via phone.
You can call them at 800-772-1213 and be able to speak with one of the SSA’s representatives.
