When will I receive my first retirement payment?
You usually receive your first retirement payment 4-8 weeks after your retirement date, although it could take longer if you have established reciprocity. Your first retirement check may be slightly higher than your actual retirement benefit as it usually includes any partial payments from the previous month.
