When Should I Expect My Disability Benefits

If you have been approved for Social Security Disability, you definitely will be wondering when you will receive your benefits.  Here is what to expect after being approved for Social Security Disability benefits.

Social Security Disability Benefit Payments

Payments are generally issued on the 2nd, 3rd or 4th Wednesday each month. However, if the 3rd is on a Saturday, Sunday, or nationally recognized holiday, benefits will be paid on the banking day prior.

However, payment dates for disabled individuals that began receiving Social Security benefits after 1997 are determined by their birthday.  Individuals who have a birthday on the 1st-10th of a month, benefits will deposit on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. For those born between the 11th-20th, benefits will arrive on the 2rd Wednesday of every month. Lastly, for people born between the 21st-31st, their checks or direct deposit will arrive on the 4th Wednesday of the month.

For disabled persons that receive SSDI and SSI payments together, payments will arrive on the 3rd day of the month.

Methods for Receiving SSD and SSI Payments

  • Direct deposit to an established bank account.
  • Direct Express Card. Deposits money directly to a swipe-able card..
  • Electronic Transfer Account.
  • Regular Mail.  However, it is recommended to choose one of the three options listed above due to concerns with a check being lost or stolen.
