When to Expect Your SSD Payments Throughout 2024

Predictability matters, especially when you’re living on a budget, and a single monthly check may be your only source of income. If you receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI), that check should arrive like clockwork on the 1st of each month. If banks are closed on the 1st of the month because it’s a weekend or holiday, you’ll get paid early. For Social Security benefits, including Social Security disability benefits (SSD), it works a little differently. Here’s what you can expect in 2024. 

Social Security Disability Benefits Payment Schedule

If you started receiving Social Security benefits, including SSD benefits, before May of 1997, the schedule is simple. You’ll get paid on the 3rd of each month regardless of other variables. If you’re receiving both SSI and SSD, you will receive your SSI payment on the 1st and your SSD payment on the 3rd. For everyone else, your payment date depends on your birth date.

Birth Date Payment Schedule for SSD

The Social Security Administration (SSA) has broken out payments into groups. The first group includes those listed above, who are paid on the 3rd of the month. Everyone else is broken out based on when they were born. The schedule looks like this: 

  • For those with birthdays from the 1st to the 10th of the month, SSD payments are deposited on the second Wednesday of the month
  • For those with birthdays from the 11th to 20th of the month, SSD payments are deposited on the third Wednesday of the month
  • For those with birthdays from the 21st of the month to the 31st of the month, SSD payments are deposited on the fourth Wednesday of the month

What if My SSD Benefits Don’t Arrive on Schedule? 

If your benefits don’t arrive in the mail or appear in your bank account on schedule, you may want to wait a few days to see whether you receive them. Even though the SSA makes a point of processing benefits early if your payment date falls on a weekend or holiday, those variables can impact both mail delivery and electronic processing. For example, if your bank typically takes 24 to credit an electronic deposit to your account and the transaction is initiated on the day before a holiday, you may not see the funds available until the day after the holiday. 

Similarly, the SSA aims to have your check delivered to you on a specific day. But, the U.S. mail isn’t always entirely predictable. So, if you’re getting a check by mail, you may occasionally receive your check a day or two early or late.

Contact the SSA about Missing Benefits

If you didn’t receive your SSD benefits on time and your bank can’t help, you can contact the SSA to report the missed payment. The SSA will investigate. If there was a problem with the deposit or if a check has been lost in the mail or stolen, they will reissue your benefits check or electronic deposit. 

When Will I Get Paid if My SSD Benefits Were Just Approved? 

Getting approved for SSD can take a long time, and many applicants have to go through at least two levels of appeal before they are approved. The SSA doesn’t specify exactly how long it will take after your application is approved to receive your first check, or any back or retroactive benefits you may be owed. You should contact the SSA if you haven’t received your first check within 60 days of approval.
