When do I get paid for my Social Security benefits?

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments are made on the 1st of each month. If you began receiving Social Security Administration (SSA) payments before May 1997 or receive both SSA and SSI, your SSA is paid on the 3rd and SSI on the 1st.

If your birthday falls in May, June, or July, these are your 2024 government benefit payment dates:

May June July

You can get paid up to two days early* with direct deposit, but that’s not a guarantee. These dates are estimates based on the dates published here. SSI, VA, and SSDI payments are scheduled by the government, so we can't control when these deposits arrive.

*Early access to direct deposit funds depends on the timing of the submission of the payment file from the payer. We generally make these funds available on the day the payment file is received, which may be up to 2 days earlier than the scheduled payment date.

Note: If a payment date lands on a weekend or public holiday, benefits are paid the previous business day. This may result in Social Security benefits being paid simultaneously. For exact payment dates, refer to these government resources:

Can I set up Social Security payments directly through Chime?

Yes, you can set up Social Security payments to your Chime Checking Account using direct deposit with your Chime routing and account numbers. Ensure the name on your benefits matches the name on your account. For instructions, read How do I set up direct deposit?

I didn’t get my payment on the expected date. What should I do?

If your payment isn't available on the scheduled date, wait three business days before contacting Social Security. Processing and clearing times can cause delays.

How do I know if my SSA/SSI/VA direct deposit has arrived?

You'll get a push notification and email when your direct deposit hits, provided notifications are enabled. For more on direct deposit timing, read Why is my direct deposit late?
