The benefits are paid in the month following the month for which they are due. For example, you would receive your December benefit in January. Generally, the day of the month you receive your benefit payment depends on the birth date of the person for whose earnings record you receive benefits.

SSA publishes a calendar each year that shows the dates. Click on the link below for the 2018 Calendar of Benefits
