For example, if the first falls on a Saturday, payment is made on the Friday before.

The Social Security Administration stopped mailing checks to most Supplemental Security Income and Social Security recipients in March 2013, according to the Huffington Post. Payments are now made by direct deposit, loaded to a debit card or paid through an electronic transfer account. If the funds are not deposited when they should be, the Social Security Administration recommends calling 800-772-1213 immediately.
