When will the checks come out?
Not everyone will receive checks at the same time. They come out according to your birthday. Read more about it here.
Social Security checks are distributed every second and fourth Wednesday of every month.
If your birthday is between the 1st and the 10th of the month, you can expect the check to be on the second Wednesday of the month. If your birthday falls between the eleventh and twentieth, it will be sent on the third Wednesday. People with birthdays between the 21st and the 31st will receive their check on the fourth Wednesday.
In April, the payments will be distributed on the 13th, 20th and 27th. During the month of May, checks will go out on the 11th, 18th and 25th.
Checks are sent to reflect updated COLA and inflation.
