You might wonder when your next Social Security check will arrive if you’re a beneficiary.
However, the Social Security Administration (SSA) considers many factors while determining your payment schedule. Your birth date is one of these factors.
But What you should know about the Social Security payments on September 20 is as follows:
- For people whose birthdays fall on any day of their birth month between the 11th and the 20th, the September 20 payment is available. The usual payment date for this group of beneficiaries is this Wednesday in September.
- You should have received your September payment on the second Wednesday of September, which was September 13. If your birthday falls between the first and the tenth of your birth month, you should have.
- Even if your birthday is after the 20th of your birth month, you will receive your September payment on the fourth Wednesday of September 27.
- If you receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI), your September payment should have arrived on September 1. On September 29, you will also get another SSI payment, an advance payment for October. The SSA pays SSI benefits a few days earlier because October 1 falls on a weekend.
- Suppose you receive benefits—such as spousal or survivor—based on another person’s employment history. In that case, your payment date will be determined by the primary beneficiary’s birthday rather than your own.
Each year, the SSA publishes a schedule of Social Security benefit payments. You can view the calendar for 2023 to find out when to anticipate your upcoming checks.

Many Americans rely heavily on Social Security benefits, particularly older people and those with disabilities. The SSA tries to guarantee that beneficiaries get their payments promptly and without any issues.
However, you can contact the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 or go to your neighborhood Social Security office if you require assistance with your Social Security payments due to delays or mistakes.
