Good morning, I would immediately call my local SS field office OR,(NNN) NNN-NNNNand advise them. Errors DO happen, and they can very much disrupt bill paying and our basic survival needs, if that is the only income. If it is a hard check via mail, I'd call at the 3rd late day if it is a business day. If it is direct deposit, I'd typically call the next business day after it failed to appear. You need to know if it was a computer or mailing glitch or if there is a different issue that you need to jump on.

I hope this helps clarify for you.
