New Social Security Payment In Hours

In just a few hours, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will be delivering Social Security payments to millions of Americans. Let’s break down who is eligible for this batch of payments and what you need to know.

Who Will Get the Social Security Payment?

Different Payment Schedules

Not all Social Security beneficiaries receive their payments at the same time. The SSA has a payment cycle to manage the distribution efficiently and reduce errors and administrative burdens.


Key Requirement

The main requirement to receive the upcoming payment on July 3rd is to have been receiving Social Security benefits since before May 1997. This group, known as Retiree Group 1, gets their payments on the first of the month, or the first accessible working day if the 1st is a weekend or holiday.

Payment Schedule Breakdown

For those who started receiving benefits after May 1997, the payment dates depend on their birth date:

  • Born from the 1st to the 10th of the month: Payment on the second Wednesday of the month.
  • Born from the 11th to the 20th of the month: Payment on the third Wednesday of the month.
  • Born from the 21st to the 31st of the month: Payment on the fourth Wednesday of the month.

How Much Will You Get?

The amount of your Social Security benefits depends on several factors:

  • Program Enrolled: Different programs have different benefit amounts.
  • Old Age Retirement Insurance: For those receiving payments on July 3rd, the amount is connected to this program.
  • Lifetime Tax Payments: Your Social Security tax payments over your lifetime determine your benefit amount.
  • Retirement Age: The earlier you retire, the more significant the penalty on your Primary Insured Amount (PIA), which affects your monthly retirement payments.

Benefits of Direct Deposit

To receive your payment faster, consider activating Direct Deposit. This method ensures your money is deposited instantly into your bank account on the payment date. You can activate Direct Deposit online through the SSA website or by visiting a local SSA office.
