2104. When are SSI benefits paid?

SSI benefits are not paid in the month that you first apply. After the month of application or the month in which you first become eligible and meet SSA requirements, SSI benefits are normally paid on the first day of the month they are due. For example, benefits for August are paid August 1. (See §§2180-2188 for more information on payments.) It is important to project eligibility and to estimate future income and resources as accurately as possible. We identify and correct errors in payments due to inaccurate estimates when we review your eligibility.

Excerpt :

The law says a divorced woman, who was married to her ex-husband for a minimum of 10 years, is due essentially the same benefits as a woman who is currently married to her husband.

National Social Security Advisor Certification Available

If you're looking for advice on Social Security benefits, it may be useful to find someone with the "National Social Security Advisor" certification.

Although the NSSA appears to be a privately issued certificate, it seems to convey some level of knowledge about Social Security benefits. Finding a financial advisor with NSSA certification may be something worth exploring.
