Certain people who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) could get their monthly check a day early. The first SSI disbursement occurs on the first of the month, while regular Social Security checks are sent out on the second, third, or fourth Wednesday, depending on the person's birth date.
Because April 1 falls on a Saturday this year, SSI recipients will receive their checks one day early. While that means they will get two checks in March, it also means they will not receive a check in April.
If you don't receive your check within three business days of the expected delivery, you can contact the Social Security Administration by calling 1-800-772-1213.
The next SSI checks will go out on May 1.
The Social Security Administration said this will happen three more times this year, in June, September, and December.
Adults age 65 and older who have limited income and adults and children with a disability or blindness are eligible to receive SSI benefits.
