What if I get both Social Security and SSI at the same time?
The payment schedule is different for those who received Social Security benefits after May 1997, and those who received both Social Security Entrance or Social Security. Instead of receiving your Social Security payment on a Wednesday (which is what it used to be), you will now receive your SSI payment on the third of every month.
These payment dates may change if the third or first day of the month falls on the weekend or holiday. January 1 falls this year on a Sunday, so SSI beneficiaries received their January payment by December 30, and their Social Security payments on Tuesday, January 3. This calendar configuration means that SSI beneficiaries will not receive SSI verification in January.
What happens if I don’t receive the check by the due date?
If your check does NOT arrive by the above date based upon your birthdate or other circumstances, Social Security Administration recommends that you wait for three more postal days before calling.
