Hey y'all, I was talking to my mom yesterday, and she mentioned something odd. She said that she didn't get her Social Security check for December, but that she'll probably get two this month, because that's what happened last year...they skipped depositing it December 2015, and deposited two in January 2016. That sounds very odd to me, especially since many people only have that income to live on, and it could place the recipient in dire straits. I told her she needs to check into it, because it is possible that someone is holding that money somehow and making interest on it for a month, and if they did that with a lot of checks, they could make a substantial amount of money. I can't think of another reason it would happen, and I don't know anyone else it's happened to. I thought I'd ask here, and see if any of y'all have dealt with this issue. By the way, here's a link with the schedule for Social Security deposits in 2017.
