The day of collection of pensions changes depending on the bank in which the payroll is domiciled, although the best known appear on this list.
The date of collection of pensions is from the 25th to the 28th of the month, as a general rule. There are banks that, since the last State of Alarm in March 2020, brought income forward a few days to improve the economic situation of retirees. In the month of April, the 25th is Sunday, so the entry would be the next business day.
What day are pensions charged this month? Although Social Security pays on the established dates, there are some banks that make the income earlier, so that the pensioner can start enjoying his payroll before the last week of the month.
Some examples are found in Banco Santander or CaixaBank, which, despite the merger with Bankia, maintains the payment of pensions on the 23rd of the month. If the retiree has a checking account in this entity, he should not worry about this union, which will not affect the payment of the retirement pension at all.
April is Friday, so there will be no problem finding payroll income.

Santander is one of the earliest in the payment of pensions. Specifically, since the extraordinary health alert situation began, he is admitted on the 23rd of the month. Whenever possible, this entity pays before holidays, so that the retiree has his payroll at hand as soon as possible.

Cajamar pays before clients who have expressly requested an anticipated income. That is, the money will arrive in the account on the 25th instead of the 26th. This measure is highly demanded in cases where the payday falls on a Sunday, as it happens in April. Those who want to receive a pension a couple of days before can request it at the bank window, using the ATM or through online banking (web or App).
To avoid further problems, you do not have to perform this operation every month. It will be enough to mark at the time of sending the request that you want to keep in time, and the maximum term that Cajamar offers is 12 months, that is, one year.
