U.S. Department of Social Security Sending Corrected Benefit Notices

  • Synopsis: Published: 2009-12-11 - Social Security Administration earlier this month mailed notices that contained incorrect January 2010 payment dates - Social Security.

Main Document

The Social Security Administration earlier this month mailed notices that contained incorrect January 2010 payment dates.

These erroneous notices went to about 6 million beneficiaries who receive their payments on either the second, third, or fourth Wednesday of each month, and are part of the annual benefit notices that go to 52 million Social Security beneficiaries.

In the notice the payment date is incorrectly shown as one week before what the actual date of payment will be.

The other information in the notice, including the payment amount, is correct. Social Security is sending a letter explaining the error to beneficiaries who received the incorrect one as soon as possible.

"We apologize for the inconvenience and confusion these incorrect notices will cause," said Michael J. Astrue, Commissioner of Social Security. "The problem was caused by an unfortunate human error. We are correcting the misinformation as quickly as possible, and we are reviewing our processes closely to prevent this type of mistake from happening in the future. People receiving Social Security benefits in January 2010 should know that their payment will arrive on the same payment day that it has arrived in the past."
