When do July Social Security payments arrive? Complete schedule of SSI and SSDI checks

We tell you the Social Security payment schedule for the month of July: who collects the SSI and SSDI checks each week?


Millions of Americans rely on Social Security benefits as a vital source of income. The Social Security Administration (SSA) distributes payments to beneficiaries of various programs, including retirees, survivors, and people with disabilities who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) also known as, the Old Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) programme. If you’re wondering when your July Social Security check will arrive, here’s a complete schedule of SSI and SSDI checks.

SSI (Supplemental Security Income) Payments

SSI payments are issued on the first day of each month, unless the first falls on a weekend or holiday, in which case the payment is made on the preceding Friday.

SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) Payments

SSDI payments are distributed on a specific schedule based on the recipient’s date of birth. Beneficiaries who filed claims before May 1997 receive their payments on the third of each month. Those who filed claims on or after May 1, 1997, are assigned a payment date based on their day of birth, as follows:

  • Birthdays 1st-10th: Second Wednesday of the month
  • Birthdays 11th-20th: Third Wednesday of the month
  • Birthdays 21st-31st: Fourth Wednesday of the month

July Social Security Payment schedule

Here’s when you can expect your July Social Security payment:

  • July 1: SSI payments for payees eligible for SSI before 1997
  • July 3: SSDI payments for beneficiaries who receive both SSI and SSDI, live outside the U.S., have their Medicare premiums paid by their state, or filed for benefits before 1997
  • July 10: SSDI payments for birthdays 1st-10th
  • July 17: SSDI payments for birthdays 11th-20th
  • July 24: SSDI payments for birthdays 21st-31st

Additional information

It’s important to note that if your scheduled payment date falls on a weekend or holiday, your payment will be issued on the preceding weekday. Additionally, retirees who receive SSI benefits do not follow the standard payment schedule, and their checks are issued at the beginning of the month, regardless of their date of birth.

Direct deposit and paper checks

The SSA offers two payment methods: direct deposit and paper checks. Direct deposit is the preferred method, as it’s faster and more secure. If you choose direct deposit, your payment will be deposited into your bank account on the scheduled payment date. If you prefer paper checks, your check will be mailed to you on the scheduled payment date.

Payment delays

In rare cases, payments may be delayed due to various reasons, such as:

  • Holidays
  • Weekends
  • Bank processing times
  • Mailing delays (for paper checks)

If you haven’t received your payment by the expected date, you can contact the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 to inquire about the status of your payment.

Changes in payment amount

Your Social Security payment amount may change due to various reasons, such as:

  • Cost-Of-Living Adjustments (COLAs)
  • Changes in your income or marital status
  • Medicare premium changes

If you receive a payment that’s different from your expected amount, you can contact the SSA to understand the reason for the change.
