Due to the category 3 hurricane, Earl, brewing in the Atlantic Ocean, the US Postal Service is sending out Social Security benefit checks earlier to select parts on the U.S.
From Ed O’Keefe’s “Keeping Tabs on the Government” blog:
Letter carriers will deliver the checks early to locations in the Mid-Atlantic, specifically coastal areas of North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey and New York. Some checks will arrive in the mail today, while others should arrive on Thursday.
