The SSI program stands for Supplemental Security Income and is a program run by Social Security.
This is a federal program funded by general tax revenue.
The program provides cash assistance to eligible Americans for things like clothing, food, and shelter.
Most beneficiaries see their payments sent to them on the first of each month.
Sometimes though, the first of the month may fall on a weekend or holiday, which means it changes.
SSI payments when the first is a weekend or holiday
SSI is always paid on the first of the month.
This rule only changes if the first of the month falls on a day payments can’t be made, like holidays and weekend days.
If this happens, the payments are sent the Friday prior to the first of the month.
If it happens on a holiday, it’s the business day prior.
