When Would I Receive My First Payment?

Apr 27 2017 - 5:32am

Know that if I want to start receiving Social Security benefits on my 66th birthday on Nov 29, 2017, the first check would be deposited on the 4th Wed of the month which would be Dec 27, 2017; however, if I didn't want to start receiving my benefits until Jan 1, 2018, when would the first check be deposited, Jan 24, 2018 or Feb 21, 2018?



If your month of entitlement to benefits is January 2018, your first payment would be due on the 4th Wednesday of February 2018.
