Here's when your payment should arrive this month:

June 3: Payment for those who have received SSDI since before May 1997.

June 12: SSDI payment for those with birthdays falling between the first and 10th of any given month.

June 18: SSDI payment for those with birthdays falling between the 11th and 20th of any given month. This is a day earlier than the regular Wednesday payment day because June 19 is Juneteenth, a federal holiday.

June 26: SSDI payment for those with birthdays falling between the 21st and 31st of any given month.
