May Payments

Mark your calendars! If you’re 65 or older, retired due to age or disability, receive widow(er) benefits, or are a spouse, you qualify to receive the upcoming Social Security Payments set on May 15. These payments are a part of our government’s pledge to financial stability among its senior citizens.

It’s a must that you’ve set up the necessary bank account details or mailing address to facilitate the payment process. And remember, get registered for this service right away if you haven’t done so yet. Also, give those details a second look and make sure they’re up-to-date if any changes have occurred to your household composition or retirement status.

Eligibility for these benefits includes retirees who have begun receiving benefits from May 1997 or later. They should also have at least 10 years of service under their belt. Employment record consistency, how long they’ve worked for, the nature of the work, and the type of service performed also play a role in the computation.

Including in this benefit circle are those born between the 11th and 20th of any month. If you are one of them, regardless of the month and year, you’re in for the benefits!

Ensure the Direct Deposit system to be activated for timely payments as it arrives right on the mailing date.

Here’s the kicker, two further checks are planned after the initial May 15 payment, each having separate eligibility criteria. One aimed towards low-income folks late in May, while the other, a wide-covered one, is expected early in June. Factors to be considered here include income level, employment status, number of dependents, and other defined criteria.
