SSDI or SSI Recipients: You may be eligible for a second incentive payment
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. The family income also cannot exceed the threshold (that’s $ 75,000 single, $ 112,500 householder, and $ 150,000 married).

The IRS said it would provide more details on what action to take as we approach the 2021 filing deadline.
What It Means If You Didn’t File a 2018 or 2019 Federal Tax Return
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 Act, you were still eligible for an incentive check, and would have automatically received one (there’s no need to file a simple tax return, as the IRS originally said).
How to Receive Your Incentive Money
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. 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.

Under the CARES Act, qualified people with dependents age 16 or younger were eligible for up to $ 500 per dependent. But. The last day to claim your missing payment and receive it this year was .

If you apply 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 miss the deadline, your check will be included on your 2020 tax return in 2021.

SSI or SSDI Recipients Living Outside the US: What It Means for Your Money
