Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

If you are referring to Social Security, it normally takes Social Security 3-4 months to process your application for benefits.

Payments are made depending on your birth date:

If your birth date falls on the 1st through the 10th, you will receive your payment on the second Wednesday of the month

If your birth date falls on the 11th through the 20th, you will receive your payment on the third Wednesday of the month

If your birth date falls on the 21st through the 31st, you will receive your payment on the fourth Wednesday of the month

The following are links to the 2017 and 2018 payment schedules:

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

If I have answered your question, a positive 5-star rating will be appreciated.
