The last Social Security Disability Insurance of November is to be distributed to beneficiaries this week. Whether or not your money arrived depends on two things: your date of birth and the year you started receiving SSDI money. Each month, checks are paid on four different dates, and it can get confusing to parse, even if you’ve been receiving benefits for many years. But if you’re expecting a payment, it’s good to know exactly when it should arrive.
SSDI follows a similar schedule for Social Security payments unless you’ve been getting SSDI checks for decades. We will explain below. Also, know that the the amount you will receive will be morefrom January 2023, due to the cost of living adjustment.
Here’s when you’ll get your Social Security Disability Insurance payment in November. To learn more, here’s why Supplemental Security Income recipients get their COLA raise in December.
SSDI payment schedule if you received them since 1997 or before
If you have been an SSDI recipient since 1997 or earlier, your payment should arrive on the third day of each month. You should therefore have received your check on November 3.
However, there are exceptions. If the third day of the month falls on a weekend or holiday, you will receive your payment on the previous business day. For example, September 3 falls on a Saturday this year, so beneficiaries received their payments on Friday September 2.
December will work the same since December 3 is also a Saturday.
The SSDI payment schedule for everyone else depends on their birthday
Payments for those who have not received SSDI money since 1997 or earlier follow the same schedule as Social Security. Here’s how it works:
- If your birthday falls between the 1st and 10th of the month, your payment will be sent on the second Wednesday of the month.
- If your birthday falls between the 11th and 20th of the month, your payment will be sent on the third Wednesday of the month.
- If your birthday falls between the 21st and 31st of the month, your payment will be sent on the fourth Wednesday of the month.
