I agree with the person in the link below, as I have asked the same question as to why social security benefits are one month behind, and the government is stealing billions of dollars over the years from this scam.
I will be 66 (my retirement age) Dec 2 2018. Does this mean I will not be able to collect until Jan. 2019?
If you want to receive your full retirement age rate you can file effective with December 2018, which would be the payment that Social Security normally issues in January 2019. Before filing, however, you should strongly consider using the maximization software available on this website in order to explore your filing options and determine your best strategy.
The website still says my claim is under review (quality control) since 11/2. Over a week ago, my lawyer called and said they spoke with.SSA, and my claim was approved. It was approved without any appeals in approx 60 days. Today would be my scheduled pay date and nothing was deposited. Will I have to wait until 12/27,.or could it post to my account earlier?
If you file for Social Security benefits May 1, 1997, or later, you are assigned one of three new payment days based on the date of birth of the person on whose record your entitlement is established (the insured individual): https://www.ssa.gov/OP_Home%2Fhandbook/handbook.01/handbook-0121.html
My question is why did the SSA do this? What was the reason the birthdate payments after May 1, 1997? Can you post a link on the rationale for doing this? Thank you--

My husband died in June 2017. I applied for survivor benefits in July and received my first direct deposit of benefits into my checking account on 8/2 for June/July. I am supposed to receive benefits on the 4th Wednesday of every month. It is now 9/5 and I have yet to see a direct deposit for August. I haven't rec'd any notice in the mail of any changes. I am wondering if it is normal to have such a delay in deposit.
I'm sorry for your loss.
If an individual chooses/applies to take SS retirement benefits in the month they reach FRA (i.e. as soon as possible with no reduction). Will the individual receive their "initial payment" in that month, or the following month? I understand SSA pays benefits in arrears, however, on the initial payment when reaching FRA there appears to be some conflicting information on the internet as to when it is paid. Thanks Larry.
Can is change my SSI auto deposit from the 2nd Wednesday of the month to the 1st of the month? I've been receiving SSI for 7 years.
My wife turns 66 (FRA) in March 2018.
She is currently receiving her own retirement benefit.
Upon reaching her FRA she will file for the extra spousal benefit.
When does she ask for this change to begin?
Is her first new additional benefit check paid in March or April?
