Every month, the Social Security Administration (SSA) ensures millions of payments are distributed accurately and promptly to retirees, survivors, and individuals with disabilities. These beneficiaries depend on either Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). The timely distribution of these benefits is crucial for the financial stability of some of society’s most vulnerable individuals.

Payment Schedule

The SSA has a straightforward system for determining payment dates based on recipients’ birth dates, which helps stagger distributions throughout the month. Here’s how it works:

  • 1st to 10th: Payments are issued on the second Wednesday of each month.
  • 11th to 20th: Payments are issued on the third Wednesday of each month.
  • 21st to 31st: Payments are issued on the fourth Wednesday of each month.


Certain groups receive their payments on different dates:

  • Before May 1997: Retirees receiving benefits before this date get their payments on the first of each month.
  • Living Abroad: Retirees permanently living outside the US also receive payments on the first.
  • SSI Beneficiaries: Payments are made on the first of each month, regardless of birth date.
  • Dual SSI and Social Security: SSI is paid on the first, with other benefits following on the third.

Payment Adjustments

If a payment date falls on a weekend or federal holiday, the payment is made on the preceding business day. This ensures beneficiaries receive their payments without delays.


July Payment Schedule Example

  • July 1: SSI beneficiaries, pre-May 1997 retirees, and Americans living abroad.
  • July 3: Beneficiaries receiving both SSI and other Social Security benefits.
  • July 10: Beneficiaries born between the 1st and 10th.
  • July 17: Beneficiaries born between the 11th and 20th.
  • July 24: Beneficiaries born between the 21st and 31st.

Payment Amounts

The amount of Social Security payments varies based on individual circumstances. Here’s a breakdown:

Retired Workers

  • Average Payment: Approximately $1,907 per month.
  • Joint Filers: Average $3,303 per month.
  • Maximum Benefits:
    • Age 62: $2,710 per month.
    • Full Retirement Age: $3,822 per month.
    • Age 70: $4,873 per month.

Most workers will not receive the maximum amounts, but understanding and maximizing your benefits can help you get closer to these figures. The SSA provides a calculator on their website to help you estimate your exact benefits based on your circumstances.


SSI Recipients

  • Individuals: Average $943 per month.
  • Couples: Average $1,415 per month.

These amounts are adjusted annually based on the Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) to account for inflation. In 2024, the COLA increased by 3.2%.

The SSA’s systematic approach to distributing payments ensures that beneficiaries receive their funds accurately and on time. Knowing the payment schedule and amounts can help recipients manage their finances more effectively. For personalized information, the SSA’s website offers detailed guidance and tools.
