The Social Security Administration disbursed the first September payment today for those who receive Supplemental Security Income, with the first Security check of the month getting sent tomorrow. These checks arrive in multiple batches each month to help manage the massive amount of mailing, as roughly 65 million Americans receive benefits.
As we get closer to the end of the year, keep an eye out in the mail for a letter about your Social Security benefits increase for 2023 — it should arrive in December. This is the largest increase in 40 years, and the letter will have details about your benefit rate for next year. You can also access your benefits online on the Social Security Administration’s website.

How Are Social Security Payment Dates Determined?
The SS Administration sends out payments on three different Wednesdays of each month — the second, third and fourth Wednesday. The Wednesday you’ll get your money all depends on your birth date. Payments for Supplemental Security Income recipients generally arrived on the first of each month (see below). We’ll break it down.
If your birthday falls between the 1st and 10th of the month, your payment will be sent out on the second Wednesday of the month.
If your birthday falls between the 11th and 20th of the month, your payment will be sent out on the third Wednesday of the month.
If your birthday falls between the 21st and 31st of the month, your payment will be sent out on the fourth Wednesday of the month.
