IRS Asking SSI And VA Beneficiaries For Critical Information By Tuesday

WASHINGTON – As the IRS continues to disburse Economic Impact Payments to Americans, the agency is asking those who receive Supplemental Security Income or Veterans Affairs benefits for information about child dependents by Tuesday.

In March, Congress passed a stimulus package in response to the coronavirus crisis. It included $1,200 payments to qualifying individuals and $2,400 to qualifying couples, plus an additional $500 for qualifying children. The IRS is asking SSI and VA beneficiaries to use their Non-Filer Tool to tell them about any qualifying children they have.

“They are getting benefits from any service that they did or they’re getting benefits based on income,” explained Steven Elwell, the chief investment officer for Level Financial Advisors. “They generally don’t end up filing a tax return, so the government may not be aware that they have a qualifying child.”

This only applies to SSI and VA beneficiaries who have a qualifying child, and did not file a federal tax return in 2018 or 2019.

Those who do not share this information with the IRS by Tuesday will have to wait until they can file a 2020 tax return to receive the extra $500 per qualifying child.




    • I haven’t received my stimlus check gust yet, so I called the social security office, and the worker explain to me, that I will receive mine, there still sending them out, and I am disabled and deserve mine, as I’m behind on my bills, my rent is $475. I only draw $783. Wish to God I’d hurry get it, it’s hard struggling gust to survive, some has already received there’s and not hurt for the stimlus check as near as I am, or others who hasn’t received these checks, it’s not seems as thoe the ones that need it the most, are not receiving the help I or they need so desperately, why is this? 😥🦅🇱🇷

      • I haven’t received a check get 581 a month SS we’re the ones that need it my brother claims me on his income tax so I don’t qualify for a check he got his $1200 and I get nothing

        • The same thing happened to me. My daughter claimed me on her taxes. Doesn’t seem fair since we are the ones who really need it. Besides I’ve paid her and bought grocery and supplies so it’s not like I’m freeloading.

        • I get ssi for my grandson and his Dad claim on his income tax which he should not have my grandson live with me I’m working on that I guess he received the 500 hundred dollars which he should not have did I took him the court for child support and still claim him and he’s not living in that household could someone help me understand this a deadbeat Dad 😃

  2. That’s what I said they making it hard on there selves and it’s getting hard for those of us on SSI and most of my SSI goes on Bill’s so I’m struggling an getting more depressed over this stimulus covid thing that’s goin on

  3. This is really messing with Me… I recieve SSI and ALL My Info. is rite there, cause I get My monthly check, “straight deposit”.. So why haven’t I recieved My Stimulus package money, yet? I’m still waiting.

        • I receive SS have a direct deposit card and nothing for me yet. I get 644.00 a month still waiting. Desperate waiting, it’s not fair. We need our money to.

        • All they care about is the businesses, big businesses ! We will all be homeless
          or dead and not be able to shop or fly anywhere anyhow. I have 2 handicapped adult children that are on SSI but their medical Bill’s and personal needs take up their ssi money. I am on social security and have to pay all extra Bill’s for them. I can’t believe this government from the top down has not taken care of their people. So many are hungary and homeless. They could get that food and milk that is wasted to people if they really wanted to. And why create a war with china??? At this time a war could wipe out humanity!!!!! China and trump are two time bombs waiting to explode. People are killing and rioting over ridiculous things. Just be sure you are keeping close to family and resolve any problems with loved ones because our days are numbered.

  9. I’m on SSI. I received a letter stating that they sent mine to the child support people. The thing is my name is no where on my husband’s child support account. So, shouldn’t they be made to still send me my $1200?

  10. Do I need to contact them even though I don’t have a child to claim.My son is 23 so no 500 dollar for me.

  11. I didn’t receive a check yet. I made sure i had filled out the 2020 censuses cause at one time they were saying that they were going to go by the information on your paperwork. Even though you still have direct deposit. But still i haven’t got anything so i wondering just like everyone else where is my check.

  12. I was wondering is there anything else that we need to do in order for use to get our check? If so please let me know i got bills to pay and food to get.

  13. Yes I receive my 1200 I am on SSI but I didn’t Receive the 500 for my seven-year-old son and I filled out the non-fill on April the 13 and on the 27 my Direct deposit just had the 1200 and I don’t think that’s fair that I may have to wait until Next year when me and my son that on low income have to wait after I was told to fill out the form to get the 500 I hope irs resolve this problem now thank you

  14. Reading through the comments it seems as though those of us receiving SSI have not receiving what was promised. My sister lives with me and she’s on SSA and SSI. She received her payment first round on her direct express that a lot of us have. What in hell is going on?! I knew this was gonna be a big cluster f**k! And you can’t call anyone for answers AND the “Get My Payment” tool is a joke!! Keeps saying “Status Unavailiable”! HELP US!!

  15. I’ve been receiving SSI for three years and it’s been deposited into a savings account at Florida Parish Bank. What do I need to do to make sure I get mines,. My address is 700 Church Street Amite La 70422
