To access the 2015 SSI payment schedule in calendar format, go to the main page of the Social Security Administration website, click on the blue rectangle marked Publications in the middle of the page, and scroll down to Schedule of Social Security Payments. On the right side, click the appropriate rectangle to receive the schedule in audio format, English PDF format or Spanish PDF format. Symbols mark various benefit payments on the calendar, with SSI payments represented as red circles.

Those eligible for SSI include elderly, blind and disabled people with limited income and resources. Individuals who want an application for SSI benefits must make an appointment to apply by phone or in person at a local Social Security office. They must also fill out an application and supplying necessary documents. Applicants can apply without an appointment, but the waiting time is usually longer. Although applicants with disabilities or blindness typically must wait for the Disability Determination Services to make a decision about their claim before receiving benefits, some applicants with extreme medical conditions may begin receiving payments right away.
