A: If you received your first back payment for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) on June 30th, 2023, the schedule for your subsequent payments depends on the specific details of your case. Generally, SSI back payments are paid in installments. These installments are typically spaced six months apart, so if your first payment was in June, the next one would normally be expected around December.

However, the exact date of the second back payment may not align precisely with the six-month mark. It's important to check with the Social Security Administration (SSA) for the specific schedule of your back payments. The SSA can provide the most accurate information regarding the timing of your payments.

Keep in mind that the timing of back payments can be influenced by various factors, including administrative processes and individual case specifics. If you have concerns about the timing of your second back payment, contacting the SSA directly would be a prudent step. They can clarify the status of your payment and provide any necessary updates.
