      Mr. Colasurd,

      The next pension payment will be issued on Jan. 2. Payments are issued on the first business day of the month. If that day falls on a weekend or holiday, payments will be issued on the last business day of the previous month. The exception is January when, for tax purposes, the payment must be issued on the first business day of the month.

      Mr. Harper,

      Pension payments are issued on the first business day of the month. If that day falls on a weekend or holiday, payments will be issued on the last business day of the previous month. The exception is January when, for tax purposes, the payment must be issued on the first business day of the month, which this year was Jan. 2.
