What are the Social Security pay dates for 2022 and what time is direct deposit made?
Depending on when you were born and what type of benefits you are receiving will determine when the Social Security Administration sends your payment.
Every month the Social Security Administration must undertake the enormous administrative challenge of distributing around 70 million payments to Americans. Social Security benefits are staggered across the month to ease the workload for the Social Security Administration, following a payment calendar the agency has established.
Social Security paydates depend on date of birth
Birth date 1st – 10th - Second Wednesday of the month
Birth date 11th – 20th - Third Wednesday of the month
Birth date 21st – 31th - Fourth Wednesday of the month
Payments for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are scheduled for the first day of the month, except when that falls on a Saturday, Sunday or national holiday. In these instances, the SSI payments will go out at the very end of the previous month.
For those who began receiving benefits before May 1997 or they are receiving both Social Security and Supplemental Security Income, they will be paid their Social Security benefits on the third of the month. Except as was the case in July 2022 when the third fell on a Sunday. As with Supplemental Security Income benefits, the payment date is moved up to the nearest business day, which was 1 July, the same day that Supplemental Security Income payments were issued.
