Thanksgiving is Almost Here: Will Social Security be Impacted?

Payments are not typically distributed on federal holidays, which means the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday could potentially affect benefit payments.

Food stamps and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits will typically be deposited on the same day each month in most states, regardless of whether or not it falls on a weekend or a holiday. But other states may delay if it falls on a federal holiday. 

The Social Security Administration has also released the schedule of Social Security payments for 2022. These payments will be the first to include the new 5.9% cost-of-living adjustment (COLA).

If your birth date is on the 1st of the month through the 10th of the month, your benefits will be paid on the second Wednesday of the month.
