Payment Dates

Will My Wife's Benefits Be Paid On The Second Wednesday Or Third Wednesday Of The Month?

Category: 

My wife is receiving her own SS benefit based on her work history. Her birthday is on the 20th of the month, so she gets her benefit on the third Wednesday. When I file, she will be able to file for an additional spousal benefit. With my birthday on the 8th of the month, I'll get my benefit on the second Wednesday.

Will her new benefit be paid on the second or third Wednesday of the month? Thanks for any replies!

Hi,

Why Did We Receive Our Payments On A Different Wednesday This Month?

Category: 

Hi,
I am wondering why my husband & I got our Social Security payments direct deposited on Oct. 13th (the 2nd Tuesday of the month) but we normally receive payments the 3rd Wednesday of each month.

FYI in case it matters: We just started receiving Social Security this year. Hubby is claimed based on my record at present, will switch to his record when he reaches age 70. I do have a seasonal part-time job but will make probably $9500 or less by year's end.

Regards,
Diana

Hi Diana,

Will I Receive My Spousal Benefits After My Husband Starts Getting His Benefits?

Category: 

My husband and I, both 66, applied for social security benefits the end of November 2019. My husband applied for full social security benefits and I applied for spousal benefits. We both were born in 1953 so took advantage of the restricted application. My husband's benefits will begin next month in February but my spousal application is still pending. Will I receive my spousal benefits a month or two after my husband starts receiving his benefits? I thought they'd begin at the same time. Your software program was very helpful. Thank you.

Hi,

Can You Explain Why I've Received My Payment Earlier Than Normal For The Last 2 Months?

Category: 

I have historically received my SS deposit on the 4th Wednesday of each month. Beginning in December 2019 my SS deposit was made on the 3rd Friday. Again now in January 2020 my SS deposit was made on the 3rd Friday. I cant seem to find a reason for the change in date nor do I know if this is just a fluke or if the 3rd Friday is now my new deposit date. If you have any information that would explain why the change I would appreciate hearing from you - THANKS!
