Some SSI beneficiaries are concerned that government offices, including the Social Security Administration, will be closed on Presidents’ Day, which is observed on February 16.
Is it possible that Presidents’ Day will cause my cheque to be late?
The dates of SSI payments are aligned with the birthdays of recipients and fall in the middle of the week–on Wednesday.
As a result, the President’s Day holiday should have no effect on your payment date.
On Wednesday, February 9, those whose birthdays occur anywhere between the first and tenth of the month should have received their payments.
Payments were sent on Wednesday, February 16, for people whose birthday occurs between the 11th and the 20th of the month.
Those with birthdays between the 21st and the 31st of December will begin to reap the rewards on Wednesday, February 23.
According to the Social Security Administration, those who receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) generally follow the same schedule as those who began claiming benefits after 1997, according to the newspaper The Sun.
Americans who began receiving SSDI benefits in 1997 or earlier will receive payments on the third of every month from this point forward.
Beneficiaries will get their rewards on the preceding banking day if the third falls on a weekend or a federally declared federal holiday.
You’ll have to wait for the Social Security Administration to fix your issue.
If you have any additional problems or delays related to your SSI or SSDI payment, you will have to wait until they are resolved before you can proceed.
If you are experiencing a delay because of a change in personal information, such as a banking account or residence, contact your local Social Security office or call 1–800–772–1213 for assistance.
The Social Security Administration’s regular work hours are Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., but offices will be closed on Presidents’ Day.
Some Social Security Administration offices have experienced delays. If you encounter any additional difficulties, the Social Security Administration recommends that you wait three business days for your check to arrive–and keep in mind that the United States Postal Service is closed on President’s Day.
After that date, you should contact the Social Security Administration.
If you have cause to believe your Social Security check has been stolen, you must alert the Social Security Administration (SSA) immediately.
Other Presidents’ Day closures are included below so that you are aware that Presidents’ Day is considered a federal holiday.
Employees of the federal government are given the day off, and federal offices are closed to commemorate the anniversary.
Schools are closed on President’s Day, while the United States Postal Service shutters its post offices and ceases delivery service.
Additionally, the New York Stock Exchange and the NASDAQ do not do business on President’s Day.
Furthermore, because most banks adhere to the Federal Reserve System’s holiday schedule, the majority of institutions, including Bank of America, Chase, and Wells Fargo bank locations, will be closed on this day.
