Hi, with regard to your question: "why is my social security check late this month? " it sounds like it could be a clerical error, if you have no reason to believe your benefits were to stop. We know the USPS did not lose it, since you are on direct deposit. You must call 1-***-***-**** (TTY 1-***-***-****) between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday to report this and get it correct.

Good luck, I know how distressing it is!

I hope this helps clarify for you.
