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.
