SSI payments are processed in the local office. SSDI, retirement, Survivors payments are done in a payment center, which often take longer. There are different ones that service regions in the U.S. If you get SSI if you look at the top of the letter, and you will see the local address of you SSA office, and if you get SSDI it will have the address of the payment center the services your area.
