It’s all because of the calendar.

SSI payments are sent on the first of the month, but June 1 is a Saturday, so the payment will be deposited on May 31, Nexstar reported.

It will happen two more times in 2024: August/September and November/December.

It also happened in December 2023, since Jan. 1 was a holiday, with deposits heading for accounts on Dec. 29, CBS News reported at the time. That payment also brought with it a COLA, or cost-of-living adjustment.
