The Social Security Administration has announced that the one-time $250 stimulus payment to SSD and SSI recipients will be paid by late May of this year. Here is the official announcement:
President Obama recently signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. This act provides for the one-time payment of $250 to individuals who get Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security benefits.
We expect everyone who is entitled to a payment to receive it by late May 2009. No action is required on your part. We are currently working on the details regarding how we will issue nearly 55 million one-time payments to our beneficiaries.
