Here is the SSDI/SSI payment calendar for August 2024. Disability payments usually follow a schedule based on your birth date, but other factors such as the type of disability insurance you have can also affect payment dates.
the payment date can change from month to month. This is mainly because of holidays and weekends that force the payment date to change.
Even though these changes are typically minor, they can affect when you receive your money. Knowing your exact payment day for August 2024 can help you plan a budget and make sure that bills are paid on time.

Will my SSI check come early in August 2024?
SSI benefits are paid on the 1st of each month, with some exceptions. If the 1st lands on a weekend or federal holiday, payment is sent on the preceding business day.
August SSI benefits will be paid on Thursday, Aug. 01, 2024.
There can be payment exceptions if the payment date lands on a weekend or federal holiday.
Weekend Exception: For SSI payments, if the 1st of the month lands on a weekend, the SSI payment will be sent on the previous business day. This means that sometimes you can receive two SSI payments in the same month (and the next month will be skipped).
Federal Holiday Exception: If your SSDI payment date lands on a federal holiday, benefits will be paid on the previous business day.
Receiving Both SSDI and SSI: If you are receiving both SSDI and SSI, your SSDI benefit is paid on the 3rd of the month, and your SSI payment is paid on the 1st.
Claims Filed Before May 1997: Recipients who filed for benefits before May 1997 are paid on the 3rd of each month.
What day is my August 2024 payment?
Let’s take a look at the payment dates for August 2024. It’s a normal month for the most part, though there is an early payment since Aug. 3rd falls on a weekend.
Aug. 01: Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is paid on the first of each month. You can expect your SSI payment to arrive on Thursday, Aug 01, 2024.
Aug. 02 (early payment): This month, Aug. 03 falls on a weekend, so SSDI benefits will be paid on Friday, Aug. 02 instead.
The following groups receive a payment on this day:
- Beneficiaries who filed a claim before May 1997
- Beneficiaries who receive both SSDI and SSI
All other beneficiaries are assigned a payment day based on their birth date.
Aug. 14: If your birthday falls between the 1st – 10th of the month, you can expect your payment on Aug. 14 (the 2nd Wednesday of the month).
Aug. 21: If your birth date falls between the 11th – 20th, you will get paid on Aug. 21 (the 3rd Wednesday of the month).
Aug. 28: If your birthday lands between the 21st – 31st, you can expect your payment on Aug. 28 (the 4th Wednesday of the month).
Aug. 30 (early payment): This month, the September SSI payment will arrive early on Aug. 30, 2024. This is because Sept. 1st lands on a weekend, so benefits are paid on the previous Friday.
While receiving a double August payment is a nice bonus, keep in mind that it also means you won’t receive any SSI payments during the month of September.
Receiving your benefit payments
When you file an SSDI or SSI claim, you will be asked to choose a payment method. You can receive your benefit payments via direct deposit or debit card.
Direct deposit is the safest and most convenient way to receive your SSDI or SSI payments. This option deposits the money directly into your checking or savings account.
Once direct deposit is set up, the payment is automatically deposited each month.
Direct Express Debit Card
The Direct Express Mastercard lets you access your benefit payments without needing a bank account. Your benefit payment is added to your card balance, and your monthly funds are ready to be used that same day.
Please note: If you didn’t receive your payment on time, please wait three business days before contacting the SSA.
