When will the first Social Security payment checks of 2023 arrive?
Despite the change of year the payment system for Social Security remains unchanged so recipients will get their benefits at the same time as in 2022.
Recipients of Social Security checks won’t have to wait any time at all for their checks as the new year begins. There have been no changes to the payment calendar for 2023.
Social Security paydates for 2023
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, payments will be made 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.
