What if I receive both Social Security and SSI?

There is a difference in the payment schedule if you received Social Security benefits prior to May 1997,

Or if you received both Social Security and Supplemental Security Income. 

Your Social Security payment will be paid on the third day of each month, and your SSI payment on the first day.

If the 1st or 3rd of the month falls on a weekend, those payment dates may change.

As an example, because April 3 fell on a Sunday this year, you would have received your Social Security payment two days earlier, on April 1.

When will I get my July Social Security check?

You can get your Social Security check and/or SSI check on the following schedule (PDF).

July 1: SSI payment for those receiving both Social Security and SSI since May 1997. 

July 13: Social Security payment for those born between the first and 10th of each month.

July 20: Social Security payment for birthdays between the 11th and 20th of any month.

July 27: Social Security payment for birthdays between the 21st and 31st of any month.

The final payment date for June was June 22.

What if I don't receive my check on the expected date?

According to the Social Security Administration, if your check doesn't arrive on the date listed above, 

Wait three additional mailing days before calling. You can call 800-772-1213 if you still haven't received it.

SSA notes that wait times are shorter Wednesday through Friday (between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. local time) and later in the day.

By visiting ssa.gov/myaccount, you can also access your Social Security benefits online.
