In 19 days, the first of two double direct payments
worth $1,828 will arrive from Social Security
In a little under three weeks, beneficiaries of Supplemental Security
Income will receive their first of two payments of $914 each.
Individual recipients will receive the first payment on March 1,
While eligible couples will receive $1,371.
As per the Social Security Administration's schedule, essential
Persons who care for someone receiving SSI will receive $458 in payments.
It is expected that the second of these double payments will be
issued on March 31 to the same recipients
Who received the first payment. Due to April 1 falling on a Saturday this year,
this second payment serves as April's payment.
When the first of a month falls on a holiday or a weekend,
the Social Security Administration does not issue payments.
In order to ensure recipients receive their SSI checks by
the first of the month, the SSA issues monthly checks on
the last business day of the month prior to the month that starts on a weekend or holiday.
