SSI is due on July 1, the Social Security payment schedule

2 Min Read

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) provides crucial support to many Americans. If you or someone you know receives SSI, understanding the payment schedule is important. This guide breaks down when payments arrive and what to expect in the coming months.

Payment Schedule for SSI

July 1 Payment


SSI payments typically arrive on the first day of each month. If the first falls on a weekend or holiday, payments may come a day or two earlier. For July, everyone receiving SSI will get their payment on July 1, whether by check or direct deposit.

Additional Payments and Eligibility

Receiving More Money


Some SSI recipients also receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or retirement benefits. These payments might come on different days. For instance, if eligible for both SSI and SSDI, you might get a payment on July 3.

Payment Amounts

Varying Amounts


Payments vary based on your situation:

  • Individuals: Up to $943
  • Married Couples: Up to $1,415
  • Average Payment: $697 as of May 2024

August and September Payments

August Payments

In August, payments will follow the usual schedule, arriving on August 1.


Double Payments in August

September’s payment date falls on a weekend (September 1), so SSI payments for September will be sent on August 30. That means recipients will receive two payments in August and none in September. Plan your finances accordingly to manage through September.

Staying informed about your SSI payments helps you manage your finances effectively. Be aware that payments may arrive earlier if the first of the month is on a weekend or holiday. Look out for the double payment in August this year and plan ahead.
