When Are Social Security Benefits Paid Each Month?

Social Security pays benefits in the month following the month for which they are due. For example, the January benefit is paid in February

For most beneficiaries, the payment date depends on your birth date. If you are receiving payments on the record of a retired, disabled or deceased worker (for example, spousal or survivor benefits), that person's birthday sets the schedule.

Here's how it works:

  • If the birthday is on the 1st through the 10th, you are paid on the second Wednesday of each month.
  • If the birthday is on the 11th through the 20th, you are paid on the third Wednesday of the month.
  • If the birthday is on the 21st through the 31st, you are paid on the fourth Wednesday of the month.

The Social Security Administration adopted this staggered schedule in June 1997. Prior to that, all benefit payments went out on the third day of the month, but that became unwieldy as the number of beneficiaries grew.


Most people who started receiving benefits before May 1, 1997, are still paid on the third of the month. The third is also the monthly pay date for these groups of Social Security beneficiaries:

Those who live abroad.

Those enrolled in Medicare Savings Programs, which provide state financial help for paying Medicare premiums.

Those who collect both Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. If you are in this group, you get your SSI on the first of the month and your Social Security on the third.


Social Security has an online calendar showing all the payment dates for 2023.

  • Social Security no longer pays benefits by check. You can receive benefits by direct deposit or via a Direct Express debit card.
  • If a scheduled payment date falls on a weekend or federal holiday, payments are made on the first preceding day that isn't a Saturday, Sunday or holiday.
