I did check the SS site but found no explanation there.
I think at this point, the only thing to worry about is to keep enough in the account that any potential overpayment can be taken back without triggering some kind of overdraft. IOW don't spend the money yet. YMMV

I received at letter today from SS that his payment was to adress an underpayment. Better late tham never but one would expect that they'd be able to send the letter first...anyway money in the bank!

Thanks to all for the comments.

Social security will eventually send you a letter explaining the additional funds. If you donít get a letter, then I suspect the money was in error. Therefore no letter in 6 weeks, make the call.

My wife had a mystery deposit from Social Security earlier this month. After a bit of investigation I figured out that they had recalculated her benefit and discovered that they had shorted her $22 per month. she had begun receiving payments in February and the amount was for exactly 9 months of shortfall. We received an updated benefit letter a few days ago with her new benefit amount.


In her case, she applied last October and her earnings record wasn't finished for 2020. They apparently based her benefit on her earnings to the time of application then corrected it for her earnings accrued after that (in 2020). Starting next month she will receive the new benefit amount.

While not too eager to question extra money on his behalf, I'm curious if anyone here might have a clue. The entry had the same verbiage as his regular check but the whole things sound a bit strange.

I checked the SS website and he's supposed to receive another regular payment mid-month but found no other information.

Any insight appreciated.
