Social Security 2024 payment schedule details (2024)

Throughout 2024, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will continue to make payments to beneficiaries of the various programs it oversees, including Supplemental Security Income and Social Security.

In November 2023, a total of 71 million people in the US received payments from the aforementioned programs. Out of this, 64.1 million were Social Security beneficiaries. In comparison to the beginning of the year, nearly a million more people claimed Social Security benefits last month. These figures will only continue to increase as the Baby Boomer generation enters retirement.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) sends monthly payments to millions of beneficiaries, including retired workers and survivors. Survivors include children, spouses, widows, widowers, or parents of any deceased beneficiary.

The SSA also sends out on a monthly basis disability benefits, such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).

The published payment schedule for 2024

SSI payments are scheduled by the SSA to be sent out on the first day of every month. In the event that the first day falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday, the payment will be issued on the previous business day. However, recipients who started receiving payments before May 1997 are paid on the 3rd of each month, even if it falls on a weekend or holiday.

For those who collect Social Security benefits (retiree, survivors, or SSDI) and SSI at the same time, the SSI payment is sent on the first day of the month and the Social Security payment on the third day.

The rest of the Social Security checks are sent on Wednesdays, according to the date of birth of the beneficiaries:
