These Supplemental Security Income recipients won’t get any checks in April
SSA continues to send increased Social Security payments. However, some recipients will not receive any checks in April.
Month after month, the Social Security Administration (SSA) sends out monthly checks to retired workers, to recipients of Supplemental Security Income (SSI), as well as other disability and survivor benefits.
Thanks to the 8.7 percent increase in the cost-of-living adjustment (COLA), average retiree payments increased to about $1,830 in February 2022. On the other hand, median payments for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients are approximately $675.

Sometimes recipients of SSI will receive two payments in a month, but sometimes they get none.
SSI payments are scheduled to be sent out on the first day of the month. However, if the first day falls on a weekend, the payment is sent in advance. That is the case this month, where instead of sending the check on 1 April, it was sent on 31 March. This means that SSI beneficiaries received two checks in March and none in April.
