How come my Social Security Benefit check get deposited

Customer Question

How come my Social Security Benefit check get deposited today? Today is the last Wednesday of the month? Alice Burczynski
JA: It makes things fair because you are showing good faith with the deposit and the Retirement Accountant is showing good faith by spending time helping you before they're paid anything. They only get paid if you are satisfied. These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.
Customer: did not get deposited?
JA: Is there anything else the Retirement Accountant should be aware of?
Customer: Yes where is my money?

Hi,

As I mentioned, my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. Please don't confuse excellent service with a satisfactory outcome based on your wants and desires. I can only explain the law and social security process to you---not guarantee that you will be happy with the outcome---any more than a cancer surgeon can guarantee a cure.

While it is rare for a person’s automatic deposit not to be deposited on the day that it is scheduled, it does occasionally happen.

As today is the fourth Wednesday of the month, it is possible that your bank simply has not credited it to your account yet, and of course you will want to check with them and see if bank computers show it as a pending deposit (for tonight----which allows you to write checks against it today or use your debit card).

If it is not at least pending---to be credited this evening, because you receive your benefit through automatic deposit, there is one other thing that you can do.

As you normally receive your benefit payment by direct deposit, you may report a non-receipt of payment immediately by calling 1-***-***-**** (TTY 1-***-***-****) between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. Social Security will check their records and get the situation straightened out for you.

You may reply back to me using the Reply link and I will be happy to continue to assist you until I am able to address your concerns, to your satisfaction.

I hope that I have been able to fully answer your question. As I am not an employee of JustAnswer, please be so kind as to rate my service to you. That is the only way I am compensated for assisting you. Thank you in advance.

I wish you and yours the best in 2016,

Doug

It is possible that your questions and issues might be better served by an in-depth conversation with me. If you are interested, for a very nominal charge I can offer you a private phone conference.

Please know that I answered your question in good faith, providing you with the information that you asked for, and I did that with the expectation that you would act likewise and rate my service to you. If I have already provided you with the information you asked for and you have no additional questions, would you please now rate my service to you so I can be compensated for assisting you? Rating me costs you nothing as you have already paid the deposit for my help. All rating does is ensure that I am paid for my time in working with you.

Thanks in advance for your rating of my service, It is greatly appreciated,

Doug
