Re: When do Social Security payments start?
There is a thread here somewhere on this subject, but I couldn't find it.
I do recall learning, for example, if your SS eligible birthday is on December 3, you will not receive your first SS check until the beginning of February. If I remember correctly, this is because unless your birthday is on the first or second day of the month, you are not considered SS eligible until the beginning of the following month, and then benefits are paid at the end of each 30 day eligibility period.
Numbers is hard.
