October 2019 Social Security Payment Schedule

The Social Security Administration releases a payment calendar each year that shows when Social Security Retirement Benefits, Disability Benefits, and Supplemental Security Income Benefits will be paid each month. In this post, we will review in detail the October 2019 Social Security Payment Schedule.

Why is this important? Because knowing when your Social Security benefits will be paid each month allows you to plan better so that you are not put in a situation where you are expecting benefit payments and they are not yet paid.

How Social Security Payment Schedule Works

When you receive your Social Security benefits (SS and SSDI) depends on your birthday.

  • 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.
