The government announced that Social Security Administration (SSA) will begin sending yours soon payment in December. In fact, the Administration will send two checks on the same day. So there will be more recipients than usual for the first payment day.
Pensioners and the people of disability benefits (SSDI) can start receiving payments on December 1, 2023. This is unusual, as the first payment day of the month is usually for those citizens with additional insurance income.
However, the Social Security Administration had to reschedule payments because on Sunday, December 3, banks are closed. Back then, the only opportunity to send checks was also December 1st. This way the recipients will get theirs money 2 days in advance.
