And if you do participate in the SSI or SSDI programs and have not received it, you have to or your the following week, at 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. ET) on Nov. 21. Below we will walk you through details pertaining to SSI and SSDI receivers. (Here are some of the groups of people who are likely .) This story is regularly updated.
Am I eligible for a new incentive payment if I am an SSDI or SSI recipient?
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.
What if I haven’t filed a federal 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 CARES law, you were still eligible for a stimulus check and had you automatically received one (no need to file a simple tax return, as the IRS originally said).
Would my check be in the mail or a Direct Express payment?
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, butsince the IRS has already set up the payment system.
What if my first check never arrived?
If you’re on SSI or SSDI but still haven’t gotten a stimulus check from round one, the IRS may need even more information about your eligibility. To get your money, you must provide your information to the IRS using the tool Non-Filers byat 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. ET).
The agency will ask for your name, mailing address, date of birth, Society Security number, bank account number if you have one, identity protection personal identification number, also known as IP PIN and driver’s license or state issued ID, if you have one. You can submit this information online using the Non-Filers tool. (Important caveatIf you’ve filed a tax refund for 2019, don’t use this tool, even if you weren’t required to – it will only slow down the processing of your return and any refund.)
What if my dependent was not covered on my first check?
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 at noon PT (9 p.m. ET).

How do I use the IRS tool to claim a missing stimulus check?
Here’s what to expect when using the IRS Non-Filers tool: Create an account with your email address and phone number, along with a user ID and password. You will be taken to a screen where you enter your application status (single or married joint declaration) and personal details. There is a box to check if someone else can claim you or your spouse as a dependent. Then you can enter your bank information (if you’d rather not have or have a bank, the IRS will send you a check in the mail). You will be taken to another screen to enter more personal information to verify your identity.
After completing the forms, you will receive an email from Free File Fillable Forms customer service confirming that you have successfully submitted your information, or that you know there is a problem and how to correct it. The site uses your information to automatically fill out a Form 1040 and send it to the IRS to calculate and send you a payment.
How soon can I get my missing stimulus check?
If your payment didn’t come in on the first round, but you register with the Non-Filers tool by Nov. 21 at 12 p.m. PT (9 p.m. ET), the IRS says you’ll receive the payment by the end of 2020.
Use the IRS Get My Payment tool to track the status of your payment.
When can I expect the missing money for my family members?
If you used the Non-Filers tool from May 5 through August 15, the IRS should have automatically issued the catch-up fee for your family members in October. If you have your, you should have received the catch-up payment in the same way. Others should have received it by mail.
If you apply for your missing dependent money before November 21, the payment should arrive by the end of 2020, in 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.
To check the status of your or your dependent payment, use the IRS Get My Payment tool to track it. You should also receive notice in the mail to let you know that an additional $ 500 has been spent per eligible child.
I live outside the US and receive SSI or SSDI. What does that mean for my money?
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). The IRS planned to send those checks in late July. If you live abroad but receive your monthly benefit through a US bank, you must also have received your payment by the end of July by direct deposit into that account. Find out.
Again, you can use the Get My Payment tool to track your payment.
