Unsure if this is helpful or not but being on SSI myself I know you can get a Free (totally) Debit card through a program set up Just for people getting SSI and SSDI.
Your check is put on to that card at 1:00Am on the 1st.
You could get your check on this and than see if they will allow a credit or debit card payment.
The service is called

Have you tried addressing this in writing with the landlord? Send a letter addressing the fact you get your check on the first and would like to have a 5 day grace period to allow the rent to arrive to her Let them know you will mail it out on the first as you always have.
Is it low income? Section 8? Is it possible this landlord is trying to force you out?
Did this only Just start taking place or has it always been this way?
Also when you look at your lease is there no grace period allowed mentioned on it?
I know on every lease I have ever signed I have had a 5 day grace period allowed.
I found this info for MD rent law
Unsure what county you are in This is from a site for PG County.
The tenant should pay the rent on time and treat the landlordís property with care. Unless there is a stated grace period, the landlord can file suit in rent court against the tenant if the tenant is one day late in paying the rent (late charges are limited to 5% of monthly rent; $3.00 for weekly rent). In Prince Georges County, a late fee cannot be accessed until after the rent is five days late and then can only be accessed at 1% a day up to a total of 5%. In all counties, the landlord can hold the tenant responsible for any damages caused to the property by the tenant
