Deadline for SSA or SSDI Beneficiaries to Register for Stimulus Checks September 24, 2020


Stimulus Checks/ Economic Impact Payment

 Are you a family with children under the age of 17 and receiving SSI/SSA? 

September 30 is the IRS’ extended deadline for Social Security and SSI recipients to enter their child’s information in the IRS’ Non-Filer Tool to receive the $500 Economic Impact Payment (EIP) this year.

The extended deadline applies to people who:

• Receive Social Security retirement, survivors, or disability benefits, or SSI payments;

• Did not file a 2019 or 2018 tax return;

• Have a qualifying child under age 17; and

• Who did not already enter information in the IRS’ Non-Filer Tool for themselves and at least one child.


If you already entered information in the IRS’ Non-Filer Tool before and even after the IRS’ previously announced deadlines (April 22 for Social Security beneficiaries; May 5 for SSI recipients), you do not need to do anything for those children.  However, you may need to file a tax return next year, please visit the IRS website to learn more. The IRS will automatically make a payment in October based on the information you provided.
