Social Security Benefits Will Be Paid On Time

Social Security Administration Commissioner, Michael J. Astrue said the following today in a press release:

“I am happy to announce there will be no delay in the payment of August Social Security benefits, which should be a relief to those people who were concerned about their benefits. I’m pleased the President and Congress were able to come together in a bipartisan fashion to avoid an interruption in payments.”

If you haven’t been paying attention to the recent debt ceiling debate in Washington, there was threat of the Social Security checks not being sent out due to the government not having enough money to cover the cost in August. The Hardison & Cochran blog covered this news on July 18th.
