Check timing

Most recently, our readers who receive SSI payments should have received their payments at the end of December, February and most recently, March 1. SSI payments are made on the first of the month, except when the first of the month falls on a federal holiday or weekend. This means that your next Del Mar, California, SSI payment will arrive on March 1, followed by March 31. And, for the remainder of the year, payments will be made on May 1, June 1, June 30, August 1, September 1, September 29 and the first days of November and December.
