If you are a Social Security beneficiary, you may be wondering when you will receive your payment for August 2023.

In this blog post, we will explain the payment dates for different groups of beneficiaries and how to check your payment status online.

Payment dates for retirement, survivors, and disability benefits

The Social Security Administration (SSA) pays retirement, survivors, and disability benefits on different days of the month based on the beneficiary’s birth date. Here are the payment dates for August 2023:

If you receive benefits as a spouse, parent, or child of a worker who died, your payment date is based on the worker’s birth date.

Payment dates for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits

The SSA pays SSI benefits on the first day of each month. However, if the first day falls on a weekend or a federal holiday, the payment is made on the previous business day. For August 2023, the payment date is Monday, July 31.

Payment dates for direct deposit and paper checks

If you have direct deposit, you will receive your payment on the scheduled date. If you receive a paper check by mail, you may experience some delays due to postal service issues. The SSA recommends that you sign up for direct deposit to avoid any problems with receiving your payment. You can do so online at https://www.ssa.gov/myaccount/ or by calling 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778).
