Hi there,
You may want to contact the SSA regarding this, they can assign a representative for you that may be more willing to make sure those funds are used for your benefit.

How do I find out when and how much my daughter will receive? I have not received any mail from ssi in over a month since they said she was approved.

My attorney told me I was awarded both ssd and ssi, (after 2 hearings and a four year fight), anyhow, my ssdi backpay was released today per ssa's website. I'm still kind of lost about the SSI portion, does it take much longer for the SSI back pay ?

Hi there,
SSI back pay, if you are due SSI back pay, is paid in installments, and it may not be released on the same day as the SSDI back pay. You may want to contact the SSA regarding this at 1-800-772-1213.

Hi there,
Processing times for financial instituitions may vary, so it would be very hard to say when it will be deposited.

I have changed banks and need to redirect my Social Security Check to the new bank with
the new routing numbers. i have called and gone on-line without success getting through.
Please advise. I heard that Yukon, OK has a SS office branch but was unable to find the
location. OKC has shut down their Shepherd Mall Office, where I used to go.

Hi Nancy,
If you have not closed out the original bank account, you may want to keep it until you can confirm that your new bank account is set up for direct deposit. Additionally you may want to set up a My Social Security account:

Hi Valerie,
The SSA may have sent your check for January early as bank holidays may have made that the only day that they could have done so. You may want to contact them regarding this.

Hi Laura,
I'm sorry to hear about that! If you're switching banks, it's a good idea to make sure that the money is deposited in the new account before closing the old one.

I was wondering how to change my SSI from my direct express card to a checking account with a bank. Do I do that online or through a bank? and if so, how long before my deposit date should I make the change so I don't have any interruptions with my income deposits. Thanks.

If I get my check on the 1st is it deposited in my bank account at midnight on the 1st or when

Hi Michael,

Your SSI benefits are paid on the first day of each month. If the first is on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, your benefits will be paid on the banking day before. The SSA recommends calling the agency at 800-772-1213 if you have not received your check by the fourth banking day of the month.

Best Wishes,

I use a prepaid debit card for my disability check. I usually have received my funds by now, even though they aren't due until the 3rd.
Is the slow deposit this month due to our new president?

It could be a for a variety reasons, however I can't say for sure it's because of President Trump. You may want to contact the SSA regarding this at 1-800-772-1213.

Hi Sharon,
You may want to give them your new bank's information, however do not close your other bank account until you can confirm that the SSA has deposited funds into the new bank account.

Hi Sue,
It may not affect him, however it may be a good idea to make sure that any money he receives as benefits stays separate from other funds.

Hi Ronaldo,

Yes, you can but you have to let the SSA know that you changed banks and would like to have the direct deposit into your new account at your new bank. You can call them at this number: 1-800-772-1213

I recieve ssi and ssdi and was given a rep payee without my knowledge. I wasn't asked who I would like to be my payee. I was approved for mental and physical disability. Well the mental health place I go to provides me a rental subsidy. The property manager (who depending on his mood is or isn't an authorized rep of the owner. He will repeatedly exclaim he's just the maintance man what do we want him to do then alternatively try to evict people without going to court threaten lockouts taking all property with him. And another maintance man will be the one that signs there notice to quit.) demanded at my lease signing after It was signed and he too the check, that I leave the room and then had a 45 min discussion about me (no release of info was ever signed by me for him). The organization payee I was assigned I have never met, have no communication with. Expects me to be able to buy food and live off $50 a week sometimes I never know what I'll get that week if I even get anything. Meaning I have $50 sometimes to eat for 2-3 weeks. Phone calls don't get returned. No budget was ever set up. He takes 41$ a month for his services. I never agreed to be charged to have a payee or informed I would be charged. In Feb he closed the account my ssi and ssdi payments went into and didn't change the direct deposit info with ssa. Both payments for march were returned an'd as a result my ssi has been suspended due to the March payment being returned. My ssdi was reissued but he never got my ssi reinstated nor the payment reissued. What can I do? For 14 days I recieved no money for food or otherwise. He didn't even notify ssa that he didn't recieve my payment until after the 5th of march. The new account was already opened in the begining of February. He would have known there was a problem the 1st. But did nothing. I couldn't do anything because I don't know the account or routing numbers. I effectively have no way of communicating with him. Phone calls are unanswered and unreturned. My phone was shut off because he decided I don't need it and refused to pay the bill. Now I will only have 190 for food and to live off in April because he won't do anything about my ssi being suspended. I need help.
