The initial round of September Social Security checks was sent a few weeks ago, but there will be another batch this week. Social Security benefits have been paid to the group that obtained the funds since before May 1997. If you are a recipient of Supplemental Security Income, your payment was due on Friday, September 1.
This week’s money may not go to you, but there’s a solid reason for it. According to your birth date, the Social Security Administration issues its checks in several rounds during the month; therefore, yours may arrive at a different time. We’ll explain how a payment date is established and assist you in determining when your Social Security check will arrive. Understand the ideal time to start collecting your Social Security payments and how to suspend them for a larger payment later if you have just started getting them.
