Here are the facts about SSDI, SSI, and stimulus controls. And here’s everything else.
SSDI and SSI recipients can receive a second stimulus check
Until Congress finalizes a bill, we don’t know exactly. But we expect qualifications to remain largely the same as in March’s CARES Act. That means if you participate in the SSI or SSDI program, you are eligible for a check, as you did in the first round, as long as you have a Social Security number and you are on someone else’s tax return. Your family income also can’t exceed the threshold (that’s $ 75,000 single, $ 112,500 householder, and $ 150,000 married).
Here are two reasons why a.
If you missed the November 21st deadline to file a claim for the first check, is it too late?
If you’re receiving SSI or SSDI but still haven’t gotten a stimulus check from round one, the IRS may need additional information about your eligibility. To get your money this year, the IRS has set a deadline of Nov. 21 at. If you missed it, you can claim the extra amount when you file a 2020 declaration in 2021. This is called the Recovery Rebate Credit.
The IRS said it will provide more detail on what action to take as we near the 2021 filing deadline.
What if you have not submitted a tax return for 2018 or 2019?
If you receive federal benefits, including SSI and SSDI, as your only form of income, you were not required to file a federal income tax return in 2018 or 2019. Under the CARES law, you were still eligible for an incentive check, and should have received one automatically (no need to file a simple tax return, as the IRS originally said).
How exactly does your incentive payment arrive?
Most SSI and SSDI recipients did not receive their first 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. It is likely that if a second check is approved, it will arrive the same way as the first, butas the IRS has already set up the payment system.
How do you know if your children were eligible for the first check?
Under the CARES Act, qualified people with dependents age 16 or younger were eligible for up to $ 500 per dependent child. But not everyone with eligible dependents. The last day to claim your missing payment and receive it this year was . The IRS said if you missed the deadline, you can claim the missing payment when you file tax returns in 2021.

When can your missing stimulus check arrive?
If your payment hasn’t come in yet and you registered with the Non-Filers tool by Nov. 21, the IRS says you’ll receive the payment by the end of 2020. If you missed the Nov. 21 closing, the IRS said you can receive your payment in 2021 when you file your federal tax return.

When will you get your catch-up money for dependents?
If you used the IRS’s Non-Filers tool from May 5 to August 15, the IRS should have automatically issued the catch-up payment for your family members by October. If you have your, you should have received the catch-up in the same way. Others should have received it by mail.
If you applied for your missing dependent money before November 21, the payment should arrive by the end of 2020, the same way you received your first payment (likely direct deposit or mail). If you missed the deadline, your check will be included on your 2020 tax return in 2021.
Use the IRS ‘Get My Payment’ tool to check the status of your payment or that of your dependent. You should also receive a message in the mail to let you know that an additional $ 500 has been spent per eligible child.
SSI or SSDI Recipients Residing Outside the US: Which Incentive Means For You
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 deposit money into foreign banks).
