Two payments worth $1,682 in April 2022

Why are there two SSI checks in April?

There is a holiday payment schedule in place for some months throughout the year.

The first time it went into effect was in Dec. 2021, when Jan. 1 2022’s payment was made in Dec.

For April, there are two payments because May 1 falls on a Sunday.

This means there are two payments in April and none in May.

If the first of the month falls on a weekend day or holiday, the payment will be made the business day before.

The two payments in April will be Friday, April 1 and Friday, April 29.

Social Security checks will not be impacted.

Those are made on the second, third, and fourth Wednesday of each month.
