SSA Benefits to be Paid on Time Despite Economic Hardship

When the credit rating of the United States was downgraded from AAA to AA+, many Social Security beneficiaries become anxious that their benefits would be affected. However, despite the fact that the country is facing an economic storm, the SS benefits would not be affected.

According to the press statement of Social Security Administration (SSA), beneficiaries should not worry about their checks and electronic payment because they would be issued on time. The agency has assured the people that allowances for disabled employees, retirees, survivors, and other SS benefit recipients will be released timely.

SSA has announced that the payments and checks for August 10th, 17th, and 24th will be released as scheduled.

Currently there are at least 155 million American workers who pay their Social Security taxes and about 54 million people who benefit from SSA’s insurance programs.

SSA benefit programs are the safety net of many retired and disabled Americans, and getting their payment on time would provide a lot of help to them. The economic struggle of the U.S. should not obstruct the rights of the people to receive their benefits from SSA. Applicants for any of SSA’s benefit program are suggested to consult with an expert lawyer to properly assess the case.
