Here’s the 2020 Social Security Payment Schedule

It’s not too early to see when to expect your monthly checks from Social Security (SS) in 2020. The Social Security Administration has released the 2020 Social Security payment schedule.

The Social Security Administration has published a schedule of 2020 payments, making it easy to find out when you can expect your SSD benefit checks.

You can also use your birthday to help remember when you’ll receive your payments, which are scheduled to arrive on the same Wednesday each month.

    • If your birthday is from the 1st to the 10th, you will receive your payment on the second Wednesday of each month.
    • If you were born between the 11th and the 20th, your benefits will arrive on the third Wednesday of the month.
    • If your birthday is from the 21st to the end of the month, you’ll receive your benefits payment on the fourth Wednesday of each month.

Exceptions to When Social Security Checks Arrive

If you fall into one of the categories below, your check may arrive on an alternate schedule.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Payment Dates

Similar to SS benefit payments, with SSDI payments, the date of your benefit is determined by your birthday as follows:

  • If your birthday falls between the 1st and 10th of the month, you’ll receive SSDI benefits on the 2nd Wednesday of every month.
  • If your birthday falls between the 11th and 20th of the month, your benefits will come on the 3rd Wednesday of every month.
  • If your birthday falls between the 21st and the last day of the month, your payments will come on the 4th Wednesday of every month.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Payment Dates

For SSI recipients, benefits will arrive on the first of the month.  If the 1st of the month falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or a federal holiday, you will be paid on the business day before then.

For example, if the 1st on the month falls on a Saturday, you’ll receive your benefits the Friday before.
