When Will My Daughter Be Paid?

Aug 25 2018 - 7:50am

I just won my SSDI claim. I have one dependent. She is entitled to 50% of my PIA. My monthly payments are scheduled for the third Wed. of each month. My question is when is my dependent paid and do I need a separate, dedicated bank account for her funds or can I have them deposited into my bank account since I am her rep. payee. Thanks--Is there a SSA link answers this question? Please post if there is.


Your daughter will be paid on the same day of the month as you, provided that she's not also receiving Social Security benefits on another record or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). And yes, you would need to use a separate bank account for your daughter's benefits that lists her as the owner of the funds.

Here's is a link to FAQs on Social Security's website: https://www.ssa.gov/payee/faqrep.htm, and here's a link to their representative payee guide: https://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10076.pdf. Information on proper bank accounts can be found on page 6 of the guide.
