SOCIAL SECURITY PRESS RELEASE:

New Economic Impact Payment Guidance

Please share the press release attached with your clients, colleagues, affiliates, and other interested parties. Below is a summary of the press release:

  • Treasury has launched a new Economic Impact Payment (EIP) web tool to assist individuals who normally do not file taxes. www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payments
  • The eligibility requirements and other information about the Economic Impact Payments can be found at www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payment-information-center.
  • Social Security beneficiaries (receive benefits on the 3rd or Wednesdays of the month) who do not have qualifying children under the age 17, do not need to take any action with IRS. Will receive economic impact payment (EIP) directly from IRS to bank account, direct express card or paper check.
  • Any new beneficiaries since January 2020, who did not file a tax return for 2018 or 2019, must visit the IRS Non-Filers Page: www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payments
  • Social Security beneficiaries, who did not file a tax return in 2018 or 2019 and have qualifying children under age 17 need to visit www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payments in order to receive the $500 per dependent child EIP timely in addition to the $1200.00 individual payment that will be automatically sent. Failure to proactively enter information will result in a delay in receiving the $500 dependent child EIP.
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI- payment received on the 1st of the month) recipients with dependent children under age 17 must follow the same procedures in order to receive the $500 child EIP payment timely.
  • Treasury and Social Security are working closely to determine how to automate EIP payments for Supplemental Security Income recipients.
