March Social Security Payments: When Will You Get Paid?




As a Social Security beneficiary, you're probably eager to know when your March payment will arrive. The Social Security Administration has released the payment schedule for this month, and there are a few things to keep in mind.

If you started receiving Social Security benefits before May 1997, your March payment has already been disbursed.

However, this time it arrived a couple of days early, on March 1. This change in schedule was due to the fact that March 3 fell on a weekend.

For those who began receiving benefits after May 1997, your payment date depends on your birthday. Here's the breakdown for March 2019:
  • March 13: If your birthday falls between the 1st and 10th of any given month.
  • March 20: If your birthday falls between the 11th and 20th of any given month.
  • March 27: If your birthday falls between the 21st and 31st of any given month.
It's important to note that these dates may not apply to Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients. Most SSI payments are provided on the first day of each month, with a few exceptions.

To determine your specific payment date based on your birthday, follow this guideline:
  • If your birthday falls between the 1st and 10th of the month, your payment will be sent on the second Wednesday of the month.
  • If your birthday falls between the 11th and 20th of the month, your payment will be sent on the third Wednesday of the month.
  • If your birthday falls between the 21st and 31st of the month, your payment will be sent on the fourth Wednesday of the month.
If you receive both Social Security and SSI payments or started receiving benefits before May 1997, the payment schedule is different. Social Security payments are made on the third day of each month, while SSI payments are made on the first day of each month.

In case your check doesn't arrive on the expected date, the Social Security Administration advises waiting three additional mailing days before taking any action. If the issue persists, you can contact a representative at 800-772-1213.
