The final round of February Social Security Disability Insurance payments is getting disbursed this week. If you haven't received any money yet this month, keep an eye on your bank account this week to see if you get a direct deposit.
Whether your payment comes with this round depends on when you started receiving SSDI, as well as your birth date. If you don't get your payment this coming week, you may need to contact the Social Security Administration.
Below, we've listed the dates for when your SSDI money could arrive. Note that SSDI is paid on the same day as Social Security payments.
Payment schedule if you've received SSDI since 1997 or earlier
If you've been an SSDI recipient since May 1997 or before, your payment should arrive on the third day of every month.
There are exceptions. If the third day of the month falls on a weekend or holiday, you'll get your payment on the nearest business day. For example, Feb. 3 fell on a Saturday, so beneficiaries should have received their payments on that Friday, Feb. 2.
Schedule for everyone else depends on their birthday
Payments for those who haven't been receiving SSDI since 1997 or before follow the same schedule as Social Security. Here's how it works:
If your birthday falls between the first and 10th of the month, your payment will be sent on the second Wednesday of the month.
If your birthday falls between the 11th and 20th of the month, your payment will be sent on the third Wednesday of the month.
If your birthday falls between the 21st and 31st of the month, your payment will be sent on the fourth Wednesday of the month.
