The monthly retirement benefits are paid to beneficiaries in three waves, with all three occurring on Wednesdays. The waves of payments are divided by the birthdays of the recipients. The second wave of checks is always sent out on the third Wednesday of each month to those born on the 11th through 20th of their birth months, with this month's payment set to be sent to that group on Dec. 21. The third wave of payments will be sent out on the fourth Wednesday of this month, Dec. 28, for those born on the 21st through 31st of their birth months, per the Social Security Administration.

Regular Social Security payments are based on earnings throughout a person’s lifetime and have no limits based on income or resources. The average payment for retirees is approximately $1,631, as of October, per the SSA.

These checks differ from other payments distributed by the agency, such as disability insurance or Supplemental Security Income. SSI payments are set to be paid out to eligible recipients on Dec. 30.
