Born on the 1st of the month? Your birth certificate may say so but not affording to Social Security. Another tidbit of our governments stupidity.
I became eligible for social security on May 16th. My coworker became eligible for social security on May 1st.
My coworker received his first check in the 1st week of June. I thus assumed I would receive mine two weeks later as my birthday was two weeks later. WRONG! I called SS and found out my check will be sent July 20th, more than 9 weeks after my birthday as opposed to my coworker receiving his check just 5 weeks after his birthday. Why is that???
According to Social Security if you were born on the 1st of the month (any month) your birthday is in the previous month. Huh!!!!
My coworker received his check a month earlier because with his May 1st birthday the government says he was born in April. Makes perfect sense... to the absolute morons who run this country.
