SSDI May 2024 Payment: Is Your Check Coming This Week?

 SSDI May 2024 Payment: Is Your Check Coming This Week?


The second round of May Social Security Disability Insurance checks will get disbursed this week. (If you never received your April SSDI check, here’s what to do.) This week’s payments will go out to beneficiaries whose birthdays land somewhere between the first and 10th of the month.

There are four scheduled payment dates throughout May. The day your payment comes depends on when you started receiving SSDI, as well as your birth date. If you don’t get a payment by the end of the month, you might 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, March 3 fell on a weekend, so some SSDI recipients received their payments two days early, on March 1.

The 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.
