Calendar of Dates or Schedule For Social Security Disability Payments

Schedule For Social Security Disability Payments

Social Security disability, survivor, and retirement benefits are paid in the month after they are payable. The benefit payment day is determined by the day of the month the payment recipient was born.

For beneficiaries born between the 1st of the month and the 10th of the month, benefits are paid on the second Wednesday of the month.

For beneficiaries born between the 11th of the month and the 20th of the month, benefits are paid on the third Wednesday of the month.

For beneficiaries born between the 21st of the month and the 31st of the month, benefits are paid on the fourth Wednesday of the month.

If you receive benefits as:

  • A retired or disabled worker, the payment day will be determined by your own date of birth.
  • A spouse, the payment day will be determined by your spouse’s date of birth.
  • A survivor, the payment day will be determined by your parent’s/spouse’s date of birth.
  • A retired or disabled worker and as a spouse, the payment day will be determined by the date of birth of the beneficiary of the benefit first received.

Beneficiaries receiving benefits prior to May 1997 will have a payment date of the third of the month

Beneficiaries receiving both Social Security benefits and SSI payments will have a payment date of the third of the month.

Beneficiaries paid on the third of the month can, under certain circumstances, volunteer to change their payment date but will not be able to choose the payment day. The birth date will determine the new payment day. The decision to volunteer for cycling is permanent but the payment cycle could change if entitlement on a new record occurs.

For a calendar showing payment dates, see the current Schedule of Social Security Benefit Payments (2016), and (2017).
