When will people on SSI get their stimulus checks?

We’ve been trying to provide our readers with as much accurate information as possible when it comes to receiving their economic impact payments. However, with the way both the media and government work, that information could always be changing and that’s what has happened here. Previously, we said that people on Supplemental Security Income should start receiving their stimulus payments this week, however, that now appears to be incorrect.

According to new reports, SSI recipients will start receiving their stimulus payment sometime in May. When in May is unknown at this time. However you receive your SSI payments is how you should receive your stimulus payment whether that’s through a check, direct deposit, or debit card. If you’re on SSI and expecting the additional $500 per dependent you have until May 5th to provide the IRS with your dependent information at this link. If you miss the May 5th deadline, you won’t see the dependent benefit payment until 2021.

Please keep in mind that this information can change at any time. We understand how difficult it may be trying to make ends meet while awaiting your stimulus check. However, due to the ever-changing situations, the pandemic continues to cause, delays could be inevitable. As challenging is it may be, you may want to plan your budget accordingly until you actually receive your payment.

While it may be difficult to navigate, the most reliable and up to date information should be found at the IRS’s Coronavirus Tax Relief and Economic Impact Payments website.
