Social Security Questions: Can I change the date I receive my benefits?

August 31, 2020

No. If you were receiving or applied for Social Security benefits on or before April 30, 1997, or if you receive both Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), you will receive your benefit on the third of the month. If you receive only SSI, you will receive your benefit on the first of the month. If you applied for Social Security benefits after April 30, 1997, the birthday of the person whose record you receive benefits under determines your payment date:

Date of BirthPayment Day

1st through 10th — Second Wednesday

11th through 20th — Third Wednesday

21st through 31st — Fourth Wednesday

Go to Schedule of Social Security Payments for the current payment dates.
