SSI and SSDI Recipients: Third Stimulus Check Eligibility and What to Know
While details are still being filled in, it seems likely that people who receive SSI and SSDI will automatically qualify for one again, as they did for the first and second rounds of payments.
For the first two rounds, those individuals were eligible as long as they had a Social Security number and were noton someone else’s tax return, and as long as the family income did not exceed the established threshold ($ 75,000 single, $ 112,500 householder, $ 150,000 married).

- The Treasury would “contact non-affiliates to inform them on how to submit their third payment,” if additional information is needed, according to this proposal (pdf).
- Any missing payment of a third check would be paid out as part of the 2021 tax season, one year from now. You would probably have to file a tax return to claim it, if the IRS followed the same pattern for missing stimulus check money as it does now (more below).
Any way you could receive your third stimulus check
Most SSI and SSDI recipients did not receive their initial payments through their Direct Express card, although this is usually what the government uses to distribute federal benefits. Instead, the payment came in through a non-Direct Express bank account, or as a paper check, if you hadn’t registered your bank account information with the IRS.
For the second round of payments, the IRS said on its website that SSI and SSDI recipients should have gotten their incentive check money the same way they received their first incentive checks, possibly sooner, since the IRS has already set up the payment system. For those who received the first round of payment through Direct Express, they should have received the second payment the same way, the IRS said. It’s likely that the same is true for a third check, if one is sent (here is

How to Claim Stimulus Check Money Still Missing for Dependents

If you applied for your missing dependent money before November 21, the payment should have been received by the end of 2020 in the same way you received your first payment (likely direct deposit or mail). If you missed the deadline, your check should be withdrawn, if you apply for a recovery loan.

If you receive SSI or SSDI benefits but don’t live in the US, here’s everything you need to know
If you are a Social Security beneficiary with a foreign address whose monthly benefit is deposited into a foreign bank account, you will receive your incentive payment as a check in the mail. (The IRS does not usually deposit money into foreign banks.) The IRS planned to send the first set of checks to those recipients in late July 2020.
If you live abroad but are receiving your monthly payment through a US bank, you must also have received your first payment by the end of July through a direct deposit into that account.
