When Schrodinger looks at his balance, then he knows if his Social Security check arrives...
Mine is direct deposited on the 3rd. At one time all Social Security checks were made out on the third.
Now they vary. I don’t know if mine is just randomly on the third or if it was approved long enough ago that it still fit that pattern.
Of course if there is a holiday on the third it is deposited early.
1 - Dorn is anal.
2 - His friend is a dunce.
This is explained with scheduled payments listed at the SS web site
I get my check on the second Wednesday of the month....doesnt matter what the date is
If a person is to receive 12 payments throughout the year, and if such payments fall on the same day of the week, then the period of time between payments cannot always be the same, but the period must always be an integral number of weeks.
Since there are more than 12*4 weeks in a year, that means that some periods will be exactly four weeks and some will be exactly five weeks.
It has never varied from that schedule for 8 years now.
How can it be that difficult to understand?
I get mine on my numerical birth day each month. So the 19th of each month.
The real scandal is that if you’re born in the second half of the month, even by one day, you wait until the last Wednesday for your check, while if you’re born in the first half of the month, even one day before the midpoint, you get your check on the second Wednesday of the month - let the guy figure out how much money Social Security screws the public out of with this sort of scam.....
