When Will I Get My Social Security Back Pay?

After your long Social Security application process, you are thrilled to get approved. After that, you are likely going to want your Social Security Back Pay, but when will you get it?

Monthly payments are sent by check or by Social Security Direct Deposit into your checking or savings account. If you have a checking or savings account, the SSA prefers making SSI Back Pay Direct Deposit payments and may insist upon doing so.

SSI monthly payments are scheduled to be received on the first day of each month. If the first falls on a weekend or a holiday, your SSI back pay will be released via direct deposit on the last business day before the first. For example, if the first falls on a Sunday, you will receive your SSI back pay check or your SSI direct deposit on the previous Friday.

SSDI payments are also sent by check or by SSDI direct deposit. However, the day you receive your payments depends on your birthday. If your day of birth is between the 1st and 10th of the month, you will receive your payment on the second Wednesday of each month. If your day of birth is between the 11th and 20th of the month, you will receive your payment on the third Wednesday of each month. Finally, if your day of birth is between the 21st and 31st, you will receive your payment on the fourth Wednesday of every month. Payments are always made a month late.

Your award letter will tell you exactly how much you will receive and when you will receive it.
