Wondering when you’ll get your SSDI payment in May 2024? The SSA disability payment schedule is based on factors like your birth date, type of disability insurance, and when you filed your claim. Every month is a little different, especially when a payment date lands on a weekend or federal holiday.
We’ll explain how the May 2024 payments work, so you can find out exactly when you’ll receive your money.
May 2024 Disability Payment Schedule
Will my SSDI check come early in May 2024?
|If your birth date falls between:||Your SSDI benefit is paid:|
|1st – 10th of the month||Wednesday, May 08, 2024|
|11th – 20th of the month||Wednesday, May 15, 2024|
|21st – 31st of the month||Wednesday, May 22, 2024|
For most people, the schedule for SSDI payments is based on your birth date. If your birthday falls between the 1st and 10th of the month, your payments are sent on the second Wednesday of the month. If your birthday falls between the 11th and 20th, you’ll receive payment on the third Wednesday. If your birthday is between the 21st and the 31st, payments are made on the fourth Wednesday of the month.
Will my SSI check come early in May 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.
May SSI benefits will be paid on Wednesday, May 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 May 2024 payment?
May 2024 is one of the special months that has a double SSI payment. Since June 1st falls on a weekend, the June SSI payment will be paid on Friday, May 31, 2024.
May 01: Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is paid on the first of each month. You can expect your SSI payment to arrive on Wednesday, May 01, 2024.
May 03: The following groups will receive an SSDI payment on Friday, May 03, 2024.
- 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.
May 08: If your birthday falls between the 1st – 10th of the month, you can expect your payment on May 10 (the 2nd Wednesday of the month).
May 15: If your birth date falls between the 11th – 20th, you will get paid on May 17 (the 3rd Wednesday of the month).
May 22: If your birthday lands between the 21st – 31st, you can expect your payment on May 24 (the 4th Wednesday of the month).
May 31 (early payment): This month, the June SSI payment will arrive early on May 31, 2024. This is because June 01, 2024 falls on a weekend. The June 2024 SSI payment will be paid on Friday, May 31, 2024 instead.
While receiving a double May payment is a nice bonus, keep in mind that it also means you won’t receive any SSI payments during the month of June.
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 gives you a way to get your benefit payments without a bank account. Your payment goes right onto your card balance, and you can use the money that same day.
If your payment doesn’t show up on time, it is recommended that you wait three business days before contacting the SSA.
