Social Security – Thousands of Americans will have to wait more than two weeks for new benefits

The transfer of payments from Social Security Administration it depends on the calendar for each month. This means that the beneficiaries of this benefit in United States they need to know the calendar well if they want to control everything related to their household finances as much as possible.

However, there are times when even knowing the regular calendar can lead to irregularities. When this happened, Social Security Beneficiaries they have to wait a little longer to receive their monthly payment. Although there are times when they have to wait a little less, depending on the month and the group they belong to.

In the month of December, we came across a small irregularity where three groups of pensioners could not get theirs Social security until a week later. This can mean something really negative for this group of beneficiaries, because if they need the money, they can have financial problems.


The group of beneficiaries who will have to wait a little longer to receive the new one Social security check will be the beneficiaries after 1997. The administration divides pensioners into two large groups: pensioners before and after 1997. Within the second group there are in turn three more groups.

Well, those three groups, the post-1997 retirees, will have to wait a little longer to receive their monthly benefit. To be precise, they will have to wait another week. The day they will be able to receive the first of the checks in this group will be December 13th. This will be the third week, which is unusual in these cases as they always get paid in the second week.

Beneficiaries after 1997 will get theirs Social security payment on one day or another depending on their birthday. These will be the payment days for these beneficiaries:

  • December 13. Social security payment for the beneficiarys with birthdays between the 1st and 10th of the month.
  • December 20. You must have a birthday between the 11th and 20th of the month.
  • December 27. On this day, pensioners with a birthday between the 21st and 31st of the month.

Remember this without Direct deposit they will not be able to receive a check on the same day of shipment. These are the days on which the Administration will send the check, but whether or not you will receive it on that day will depend on the collection method you have activated.


In the event that our pension benefit is prior to 1997, we will receive the check on a completely different day. To be precise, this group’s reunion day will be December 1st. This month the payment is earlier as it is usually on the 3rd day of the month.

Therefore, while one group will receive a check later in December, another group will Social security a little earlier. Also, remember that with Direct Deposit, we won’t have to wait a day to receive our retirement check.

Similarly, if we have Supplemental Security Income we can get this check on december 1st as well. This means we will get two checks that day if we have both active benefits.
