Starting March 2020, the monthly payment date for Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped (AISH) and Income Support (IS) is changing to the first of the month to provide more consistency. When the first of the month is a holiday or weekend, benefits will be paid on the last business day of the previous month. For example, March 1 falls on a Sunday, so the direct deposit and mailing date will occur on Friday, February 28.
