SSDI Recipients To Receive Stimulus Checks

Social Security Disability recipients are expected to receive their $1200 stimulus checks. The IRS released a statement on their website and to the national media that people who receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), will automatically receive stimulus payments even if they haven’t filed tax returns. The IRS said that the checks should be automatically sent either by direct deposit or paper check by the end of May.

For people on Social Security or SSDI, the IRS will use the information provided on Form SSA-1099 and Form RRB-1099 to send payments. SSDI recipients who have dependent children must go a step further to receive the $500 for their children and use the IRS portal for Non-Filers as soon as possible to receive the extra money. 

The Social Security Administration’s website is urging recipients to register their qualifying children before they receive their automatic stimulus payment.

If you use a Direct Express debit card and are claiming the extra $500 per qualifying child, the IRS said “additional information will be available soon” detailing how to claim those children via the IRS’s online portal.
