What You Need to Know When You Get Retirement or Survivors Benefits - SSA 2016 Publication EN-05-100...

from the above SSA publication:

We pay Social Security benefits monthly. The benefits
are paid in the month following the month for which they
are due. For example, you would receive your July benefit in
August. Generally, the day of the month you receive your
benefit payment depends on the birth date of the person for
whose earnings record you receive benefits. For example,
if you get benefits as a retired worker, we base your benefit
payment date on your birth date. If you receive benefits
based on your spouse’s work, we base your benefit payment
date on your spouse’s birth date.

Date of birth . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Benefits paid each month on
1st - 10th . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Second Wednesday
11th - 20th. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  Third Wednesday
21st - 31st . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Fourth Wednesday

If you receive both Social Security and SSI benefits,
your Social Security payment will arrive on the third of
the month and your SSI payment will arrive on the first
of the month.

To resond to the Inquiry if ones's DOB. affects when they receive their S.S. First, I am unfortuntely on SSDI-something I never counted on, or why would I have Earned a Maseters of Science? Though I miss field work (impossible 4 me due to current mechanic failures). I live soley on SSDI, which has DECREAED for the past two years. I have been reliant on this povery-level income for > a decade. My D.O.B, includes a date within the LAST week of the month I was born. I Have NEVER received my treasured SSDI, any later than the 3rd of each new month. There may be a host of 'Other' requirements, as I am single, and without assets (except cats). I do not own a home or car. I continue to work on a voluntary basis-to educate the masses about the Reality and Future that Global change holds for Humanity, and as we all are aware, the pending dissappearance of the largest, most well known mammals on Earth. Our Inteference with the global Ecology Humans are Inherently reliant on....will haunt the quaity of life in the future.

     As Far as I've experienced, the question as to one's Birthday is Irrelevant. S.S. comes at the end of a prior month, or within the first 3 or so days of each new month.

Have you visited the Social Security web site? He needs to set up an account too. If you can't find your answer on the web site then he should visit your local social security office and talk with them. Below is a link to the web site.

Am not savvy about Social Security. I am disabled and have a disabled child over 22yrs old. We

both receive SS. My husband wants to retire at age 62 which is next year. Will he be retiring

on my retirement benfits (early) or 1/2 of my disability benefits? My retirement benefits (early) or

more than his early retirement benefits and so is 1/2 my disability benefits. Which one will he

be getting??
