April’s Social Security Benefits: Who Qualifies for $943 on April 1st?

Social Security program participants around the country are getting ready to collect their April benefits as March comes to an end. 

The Social Security Administration (SSA) distributes these essential payments according to a carefully thought-out timetable, guaranteeing that retirees, survivors, and people with disabilities receive help on time.

Beneficiaries Get Checks Wednesdays

Every month on the first, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) beneficiaries are expected to get their payments. Meanwhile, the third day of every month is when payments for Social Security benefits earned before May 1997 are supposed to be made. When SSI and Social Security benefits are received concurrently, Social Security is paid on the third day following SSI on the first.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) beneficiaries, survivors, and retirees receive their cheques on Wednesdays; the exact date of the check is based on the beneficiary’s birthdate. A well-planned and effective distribution procedure is ensured by this meticulous planning.

Note that, in order to prevent any delays, the distribution is moved to the previous business day if a payment date falls on a weekend or federal holiday. Payroll can be sent to recipients by mail as a paper check or directly deposited into their account, providing the benefit of quicker access.

Additionally, the SSA offers information on the typical benefits for various beneficiary categories in 2024. For example, retired workers should anticipate an average payout of somewhat more than $1,900.
