The third batch of Social Security checks worth an average of $1,657 will be going out for the month of March tomorrow.
These checks are for those who collect benefits and have birthdays landing between the 21st and 301st of any given month.
The increase was so high due to the rapid rate of inflation in 2021.
Social Security payment schedule
There are three rounds of checks sent each month to Social Security recipients.
The first round is the second Wednesday of the month for those with birthdays between the first and tenth of the month.
The next round is the third Wednesday of the month for those with birthdays landing between the 11th and 20th of the month.
Finally, the fourth Wednesday is for those with birthdays between the 21st and the end of the month.
Those collecting SSDI payments can expect the same schedule as those getting Social Security payments.
