As per the schedule of the Social Security Administration, the first of the two payments for SSI Income that recipients will receive in March will arrive in six days. Individual recipients will receive the first payment on March 1, which amounts to $914. They will also get the same amount in the second payment on March 31, totaling $1,828 for the month of March.
Usually, the SSA issues one SSI payment per month. However, if the first day of a month falls on a holiday or weekend, recipients will receive two payments in the preceding month. Although this means that they will not receive a payment in the following month, it ensures that they will receive 12 payments per year.
