a Excludes reductions for unnegotiated checks, and excludes payments (if any) for vocational rehabilitation services to disabled beneficiaries.
bCyclical payments began in June 1997. Previously, regular monthly payments were made only on the 3rd of the month (or on the first prior business day if the 3rd is not a business day). These payments continue to be made in certain circumstances and are called "cycle 1" payments. Cycle 2, 3, and 4 payments are made on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Wednesdays, respectively, of each month. These Wednesday payments generally are made to people who filed for benefits after May 1997. Cycle 1 payments apply in the case of beneficiaries who filed before June 1997, and continue to apply (regardless of filing date) to those who are current recipients of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits or who reside in a foreign country.
