This Week, $1,657 in Social Security Benefits Are Due — Your Birthday Determines When You Will Get Your Cheque!

On Wednesday, May 18, the second group of checks for Social Security benefits for the month of May will be mailed out.

Every month, recipients get their Social Security benefits according to their birthdays, which are used to determine which of the three payment batches they receive.

Every second, third, and fourth Wednesday of the month, checks are given out to the appropriate parties.

If the day of your birthday comes between the first and the tenth of the month, the payday that you normally get falls on the second Wednesday of that month instead.

If your birthday comes between the 11th and the 20th of the month, you will receive your paycheck on the third Wednesday of the month.

And the final payments are issued on the fourth Wednesday of each month to recipients whose birthdays fall on or after the 21st of the month.

On May 11th, the initial distribution of May payments was made to retirees whose birthdays fall within the first third of the month.
