If you haven't gotten the third stimulus check yet, you're not completely out of luck

Several anxious, angry seniors and others expressed frustration during the past week about why they had not yet received the latest, third round of stimulus cash.  

"I thought it would be here by now," one older woman lamented on a Detroit Free Press voicemail. 

"Do you have any idea when people on SSI will get their stimulus money? Desperate to hear something," another woman emailed me.

Another reader who receives government benefits via a Direct Express card complained that while stimulus money was expected on March 17, nothing showed up. "All I hear is that the IRS screwed up and it will be taken care of. It's hard enough to live in $ a month." 

Not receiving something by now doesn't mean you're completely out of luck.

More money will be issued in the coming weeks as direct deposits and through the mail as paper checks or debit cards.

It might not matter all that much to wait a few weeks, if you've been steadily employed. But such delays clearly hurt people who have difficulty making ends meet already. 

The third set of Economic Impact Payments — which offer up to $1, each for those who qualify — began hitting many bank accounts via direct deposit on March Others have begun receiving paper checks or plastic prepaid Visa cards, issued by MetaBank. 

So far, about million people were on track to receive a total of $ billion in the first two weeks since President Joe Biden signed the American Rescue Plan into law March 11, according to the Internal Revenue Service. 

That includes the latest 37 million payments in the second batch of Economic Impact Payments issued this week. 

Millions remain waiting for money

But nearly 30 million Social Security and Supplemental Security Income beneficiaries are waiting to get money through their Economic Impact Payments, according to a letter sent by leaders on the House Ways and Means Committee on Wednesday.

"Because SSA has inexplicably not sent the necessary payment files to the Internal Revenue Service, tens of millions of beneficiaries have yet to receive their desperately needed EIPs," according to Chairman Richard Neal, a  Massachusetts Democrat, and oversight subcommittee chairman Bill Pascrell Jr., a  New Jersey Democrat, and others. 

Wednesday's letter followed another scathing commentary Monday when Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee criticized both the commissioners of the IRS and the Social Security Administration about the handling of the latest stimulus rollout.

"Some of our most vulnerable seniors and persons with disabilities, including veterans who served our country with honor, are unable to pay for basic necessities while they wait for their overdue payments," according to the letter signed by Neal, Pascrell Jr. and others. 

The letter to IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig and Social Security Commissioner Andrew Saul expressed alarm that most Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, Railroad Retirement Board and Veterans Affairs beneficiaries who are not required to file a tax return had not yet received their payments.

And the letter expressed concern that "the IRS is unable to provide an expected timeline for these payments." 

Saul's office issued a press statement Wednesday that the Social Security Administration has worked with the IRS during the past year to assist with the three stimulus programs. But the statement also noted that the agency faced various hurdles, budget restrictions and did not receive any direct appropriation to support its work on the Economic Impact Payments as part of the American Rescue Plan.

"In fact, it was the substantial efforts of SSA that successfully overcame the fact that the IRS did not have a mechanism to automatically identify Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients, some of the most financially insecure people in America," Saul said in a statement. 

He noted that the Social Security Administration sent initial test files to the IRS on March 22 and the IRS confirmed "testing success" March  

"Production files were delivered to IRS before 9 a.m. on Thursday, March 25 — more than a week sooner than we were able to provide a similar file to IRS during the first round of EIPs," Saul said in the statement. 

He noted that the Social Security Administration has been updating the files that the IRS will use to issue payments to Social Security beneficiaries. 

"Those updates to our files ensure that payments go to correct bank accounts and addresses, and, that those who are deceased are removed from the files," Saul said.

"In short, Social Security employees have literally worked day and night with IRS staff to ensure that the electronic files of Social Security and SSI recipients are complete, accurate, and ready to be used to issue payments."

A year ago during the first stimulus effort, many people who received government benefits faced similar delays. Many lower-income families desperately wanted to know back in early May the whereabouts of their first Economic Impact Payments.

What makes the waiting game worse now is that the latest stimulus package is far more generous than the last two, and really could provide serious relief.

The IRS has not given any expected timeline for when people who are beneficiaries of these government programs will receive their stimulus money.

"Many federal beneficiaries who filed or returns or used the Non-Filers tool were included in these first two batches of payments, if eligible," according to an IRS news  release issued Wednesday.

Others, though, continue to wait. The IRS indicated that federal beneficiaries who did not file a or tax return or did not use the non-filers tool last year at IRS.gov, may still be waiting for the latest stimulus payments.

The IRS said it is working with the Social Security Administration, the Railroad Retirement Board and Veterans Affairs to obtain updated information to send these beneficiaries "fast, automatic payments."  

"More information about when these payments will be made will be provided on IRS.gov as soon as it becomes available," the IRS said. 

On Wednesday, the answers posted at the FAQ at www.IRS.gov remained vague, as well, when it comes to questions regarding Social Security, Railroad Retirement and Department of Veteran Affairs benefit recipients. 

What's going on with Direct Express? 

Many people who receive federal benefits get monthly payments on existing prepaid debit cards through Direct Express. 

But the Direct Express site only noted on March "According to the IRS, updates on the timing of Economic Impact Payments for federal beneficiaries are expected soon. This includes information for Direct Express cardholders who didn’t file a tax return in or Updates will be posted on IRS.gov as soon as possible." 

The Direct Express program provides  million Americans — the majority of whom do not have a bank account — with a prepaid debit card to receive their monthly Social Security or veterans benefit payments. The expectation is that the IRS would put those stimulus payments automatically on existing Direct Express cards.

The IRS is rolling out the stimulus payments in batches — including by direct deposit, as well as mailing paper checks and plastic prepaid debit cards. 

Many people who received their money already had filed tax returns, as they made enough money to be required to file a return. 

The second batch of payments includes about 17 million direct deposit payments, which were officially available Wednesday, that totaled more than $38 billion.

Like the first batch of payments, the IRS said, the payments announced Wednesday primarily were sent to eligible taxpayers who filed or returns. People who don’t typically file a return but who successfully used the Non-Filers tool on IRS.gov last year were sent payments in the second batch, too. 

Those bringing home better than average paychecks won't get money this time around, though.

For example, a married couple filing a joint return won't receive the third payment if their adjusted gross income exceeds $,

The cutoff is $, if filing as head of household and $80, for single filers and married people filing separate returns. 

Why would a married couple get two payments? 

A wide range of questions remain regarding the complex program. And not everyone is seeing their payments show up in the way they might expect. 

Some married couples, for example, are questioning why they received two forms of payment or just what appears to be half of their expected payment. 

IRS officials noted married taxpayers who file jointly — but whose tax return includes an injured spouse claim — may receive their third Economic Impact Payment as two separate payments.

"In most cases, the second payment will be delivered as directed by the tax return," according to IRS officials.

"In a few instances, one payment may come as a direct deposit and the other mailed."

An injured spouse claim is filed with the IRS to make sure that the entire tax refund won't be used to offset your spouse's past debt, including past federal income taxes by your spouse but not by you.

"By filing Form ," the IRS notes, "the injured spouse may be able to get back his or her share of the joint refund." 

What's confusing is that the second Economic Impact Payment may come the same week or within weeks of the first payment.

"Both taxpayers on the tax return should check Get My Payment separately using their own Social Security number to see the status of both payments," according to the IRS. See www.IRS.gov for the Get My Payment Tool.

Social Security Recipients Are Finally Getting Their Third Stimulus Check

In addition to seniors receiving Social Security retirement benefits, payments are also being sent to people receiving Social Security disability (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) benefits who didn't file a or tax return or didn't use the Non-Filers tool. Veterans who receive benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs but didn't file a recent tax return should start getting third-round stimulus payments soon, too.

Most Social Security, SSDI, SSI, and RRB beneficiaries who are eligible for a third stimulus check don't need to take any action to receive a payment (not everyone is eligible). However, as with previous stimulus payments, some beneficiaries may need to file a tax return – even if they don't usually file – to provide the IRS the information it needs to send an additional $1, for a spouse or any dependents. The deadline for filing a tax return has been pushed back from April 15 to May 17,

Amount of Your Third Stimulus Check

Every eligible American will receive a $1, third stimulus check "base amount." The base amount jumps to $2, for married couples filing a joint tax return. You also get an extra $1, for each dependent in your family (regardless of the dependent's age).

Not everyone will receive the full amount, though. As with the first two stimulus payments, third-round stimulus checks will be reduced – potentially to zero – for people reporting an adjusted gross income (AGI) above a certain amount on their latest tax return. If you filed your most recent tax return as a single filer, your third stimulus check will be phased-out if your AGI is $75, or more. That threshold jumps to $, for head-of-household filers, and to $, for married couples filing a joint return. Third-round stimulus checks will be completely phased out for single filers with an AGI above $80,, head-of-household filers with an AGI over $,, and joint filers with an AGI exceeding $,

You can use our handy Third Stimulus Check Calculator to get a customized estimated payment amount. All you have to do is answer three easy questions.

How to Track the Status of Your Third Stimulus Check

The IRS's "Get My Payment" tool lets you track your third stimulus check payment. The online portal lets you:

  • Check the status of your stimulus payment;
  • Confirm your payment type (paper check or direct deposit); and
  • Get a projected direct deposit or paper check delivery date (or find out if a payment hasn't been scheduled).

Payments for Social Security recipients and other federal beneficiaries may have already been reported in the portal as "pending" or "provisional" payments. However, the official payment date (i.e., when funds are actually available) is today.

Third stimulus checks and SSI: What it means for Social Security recipients

ST. LOUIS (KTVI) — The U.S. Treasury has started sending out $1, payments as part of the recently passed American Rescue Plan — but what does that mean for people on Social Security and when will SSI recipients receive their stimulus check?

According to the IRS, the third round of economic stimulus, known to the Treasury as “EIP3”, will be “sent to people who didn’t file a return but receive Social Security retirement, survivor or disability benefits (SSDI), Railroad Retirement benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Veterans Affairs benefits. This is similar to the first and second rounds of Economic Impact Payments, often referred to as EIP1 and EIP2.”

The IRS has not confirmed the official payment date. Social Security recipients will get the payment the same way they would normally receive Social Security benefits.

“For those who received EIP1 or EIP2 but don’t receive a payment via direct deposit, they will generally receive a check or, in some instances, a prepaid debit card (referred to as an “EIP Card). A payment will not be added to an existing EIP card mailed for the first or second round of stimulus payments,” the IRS says.

While the payment date for many recipients was March 18, a specific date for Social Security recipients has not been confirmed.

You can check the status of your payment using the IRS Get My Payment Tool.

The Treasury Department has sent out 90 million economic impact payments worth over $ billion. Most of those payments were sent via direct deposits. The Treasury has also sent out over , checks worth $ million.

No action is needed by most taxpayers to receive the payments, which will be automatic and similar to how people received their first and second round of economic impact payments in

The payments, which are being made to cushion the blow from the coronavirus pandemic, started with $1, payments in the first round last spring and $ payments in the second round of payments in December.

How can I get missing economic impact payments (EIP) and claim other refundable tax credits?

If I receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI), what do I need to know about economic impact payments (EIP)?

If I receive Social Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), when will I receive my economic impact payment (EIP)?

Date:

Social Security and SSI beneficiaries with a U.S. address, and who do not typically file a tax return, will receive their EIPs as follows:

  • Electronic payment – direct deposit and Direct Express Card – should have received their EIP on or about April 7.
  • Paper check EIPs, for beneficiaries who receive their monthly Social Security or SSI payment in the mail, were mailed beginning April 9.

Social Security beneficiaries with a foreign address (not a U.S. address), and who do not typically file a tax return, will receive their EIPs as follows:

  • Electronic payment – direct deposit and Direct Express Card – will receive their EIP on or about April
  • Paper check EIPs, for beneficiaries who receive their monthly Social Security payment in the mail, will be mailed beginning April

You can use the IRS’ Get My Payment Tool to see an estimate of when the IRS may send your EIP. You will not see a payment date for your EIP until the IRS has processed your EIP.

As with first two EIPs, the IRS decided to pay EIPs first only to people who filed a or tax return, and to people who used the IRS’ Non-Filer Tool to receive a previous EIP. Some Social Security beneficiaries may have received a recent EIP if they filed a tax return with the IRS.

Please note that only the IRS pays EIPs, even to Social Security and SSI recipients. Please do not contact the Social Security Administration (SSA) with questions about EIPs. Our representatives do not have information to answer your EIP questions. The IRS, not SSA, processes all EIPs.

Where can I get answers to my economic impact payment (EIP) questions?

Date:

The American Rescue Plan Act of was signed into law on March 11, The Act provides important financial relief to millions of Americans. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has paid most EIPs, including to Social Security beneficiaries and Supplemental Security Income recipients.

This web page you are reading provides a great deal of information about EIPs. If you still have questions, please visit the IRS’ Q&A page about the third EIP.

Please remember only the IRS can answer questions about economic impact payments. Please do not contact the Social Security Administration.

How will the IRS send my economic impact payment (EIP) if I have a representative payee?

Date:

Please see the answer at the IRS' website.

If I live outside the United States and not in a U.S. Territory, how and when will I get my economic impact payment (EIP)?

Date:

The IRS began issuing EIPs the week of March 15 to anyone who filed a or tax return, or if they used its Non-Filer Tool to receive a previous EIP.

Social Security beneficiaries with a foreign address (not a U.S. address) and who do not typically file a tax return will receive their EIPs as follows:

  • Electronic payment – direct deposit and Direct Express Card – will receive their EIP on or about April
  • Paper check EIPs, for beneficiaries who receive their monthly Social Security payment in the mail, will be mailed beginning April

You can use the IRS’ Get My Payment Tool to see an estimate when the IRS may send your EIP, when that information is available.

Why couldn’t Social Security provide data to the IRS sooner so the IRS could start paying economic impact payment (EIP) to Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients more quickly?

Date:

The Social Security Act is the law that governs what we are allowed to do and how. That law authorizes us to use our Trust Funds to administer the Social Security and Supplemental Security Income programs. While SSA may help other agencies with their important programs, we do so on a reimbursable basis so we do not use our Trust Funds.

As a result of our efforts, we successfully signed the reimbursable agreement and a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) less than one week after passage of the ARP, on March That process often takes weeks or months to complete, but we got the job done in a matter of days. A few days later, on Monday, March 22, we sent initial test files to IRS. The IRS confirmed on March 24 that our files and process were good. The very next morning we sent the IRS the complete set of real files. We completed this process more than a week sooner than we were able to provide a similar file to IRS during the first round of EIPs.

Please read, “If I receive Social Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), when will I receive my economic impact payment (EIP)?”, on this page if you have a question when you can expect your EIP from the IRS.

Will the IRS send an Economic Impact Payment Debit Card to some people as with previous economic impact payments (EIP)?

Date:

The IRS does not plan to issue prepaid debit cards to beneficiaries for this third round of EIPs.

If you have questions or concerns about a previous EIP payment by an EIP debit card, please visit the IRS’ EIP Card FAQ webpage or call the EIP Card Call Center at (TTY ). The Social Security Administration does not administer the EIP debit card program, and did not decide who received an EIP debit card instead of a paper check.

How can I check the status of my economic impact payment (EIP)?

Date:

You can use the IRS’ Get My Payment Tool to see an estimate of when the IRS may send your EIP. You will not see a payment date for your EIP until the IRS has processed your EIP.

How do I know if I am eligible for the third economic impact payment (EIP)?

How should a representative payee use a beneficiary’s economic impact payment (EIP)?

Date:

The EIP belongs to the Social Security or SSI beneficiary. It is not a Social Security or SSI benefit. A representative payee should discuss the EIP with the beneficiary. If the beneficiary wants to use the EIP independently, the representative payee should provide the EIP to the beneficiary. If the beneficiary asks the representative payee for assistance in using the EIP in a specific manner or saving it, the representative payee can provide that assistance outside the role of a representative payee.

How should representative payees account for the economic impact payment (EIP) when completing the annual Representative Payee Report (i.e., annual accounting form)?

Date:

Because an EIP is not a Social Security or SSI benefit, representative payees are not required to account for the EIP when they complete their annual accounting form.

How will I receive my economic impact payment (EIP) if my monthly benefit is paid to a Direct Express Card?

Date:

You may receive your EIP on your Direct Express Card if you:

  • Did not file a or tax return;
  • Did not use the IRS’ Non-Filer Tool to provide information to receive a previous EIP; and
  • You receive your monthly Social Security benefit or SSI payment by Direct Express Card.

If you received a previous EIP by an EIP debit card, not your Direct Express Card, the IRS may send your next EIP by check in the mail.

If I live in American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, or the U.S. Virgin Islands, how and when will I get my economic impact payment (EIP)?

Date:

We are not aware of guidance to answer this question. Please visit www.irs.gov to see if information is available on this topic.

What if a beneficiary alleges a representative payee misused the economic impact payment (EIP)?

Date:

Because an EIP is not a Social Security or SSI benefit, SSA does not have authority to investigate or determine whether the EIP has been misused. However, if SSA receives an allegation that the EIP was not used on behalf of the beneficiary, SSA may decide to investigate for possible misuse of the beneficiary’s Social Security or SSI benefit payments. SSA may also determine the representative payee is no longer suitable and appoint a new representative payee.

What if I don’t see an answer to my economic impact payment (EIP) question on this web page?

Date:

The IRS has published a web page dedicated to the third round of EIPs. Please visit www.irs.gov/coronavirus/third-economic-impact-payment.

Please remember that the IRS, not the Social Security Administration, issues EIPs. The Social Security Administration cannot answer EIP questions about your specific situation.

What should I do if I didn’t get a first or second economic impact payment (EIP) or think I got less than the full amount?

Date:

The IRS has sent all first and second EIPs. If you didn’t get any payments, or you received less than the full amounts, you may qualify for the Recovery Rebate Credit. You must file a tax return to claim the credit even if you don’t normally file. IRS.gov has a special section about claiming the Recovery Rebate Credit if you don’t usually file a tax return.

What should I do if I received an economic impact payment (EIP) for someone who is deceased?

Date:

The IRS has not yet provided guidance to answer this question. Please visit www.irs.gov to see if information is available on this topic.

What should I do if my family situation has changed since I last filed a tax return or since I used the IRS’ Non-Filer Tool?

Date:

The IRS is paying EIPs automatically only to eligible people you included on your most recent filed and processed tax return, or information you provided the IRS in its Non-Filer tool. If you have a new eligible person in your household (i.e. baby, adoption) since your last tax return, you must file a tax return by May 17, and include information about the new family members. Example: You filed a tax return or used the Non-Filer Tool to declare two child dependents. Since that filing, you had a baby and so you now have three child dependents. The IRS is going to send you automatic EIPs based only on the two children you reported to the IRS. To claim the EIP for your new child, you must file a tax return by May 17, You could receive that EIP separately.

What should I do if not everyone in my household received their economic income payments (EIPs)?

Date:

If not everyone in your household received their first and/or second EIP, or if someone in your household might now be eligible, it’s important that you file a tax return.

The IRS is paying EIPs based on and tax returns, and to people claimed through its Non-Filer Tool in the past. The IRS will only know about new family members (e.g., spouse and dependents) if you file a tax return. You have until May 17, to file a tax return.

Where can I find the latest information from the IRS about economic impact payments (EIP)?

Date:

The IRS has published a web page dedicated to the third round of EIPs. Please visit https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/third-economic-impact-payment.

Please remember that the IRS, not the Social Security Administration, issues EIPs. The Social Security Administration cannot answer EIP questions about your specific situation.

Why can’t Social Security just give me my economic impact payment (EIP) since they pay my monthly benefit?

Date:

Social Security does not actually pay your monthly benefit amount. Social Security is responsible for determining who is eligible for a monthly Social Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payment, and how much a person should receive each month. Social Security sends this information to the Bureau of Fiscal Service within the Department of the Treasury, which actually pays the monthly benefit to you.

In the case of EIPs, the IRS determines who will receive an EIP and the Bureau of Fiscal Service will pay EIPs.

En español | The IRS has sent a wave of pandemic stimulus checks to government retirees who normally don’t file federal income taxes. Now the agency is sending payments to Veterans Affairs beneficiaries who don’t normally file taxes. But the Social Security Administration (SSA) says if you are a beneficiary and haven’t gotten your stimulus check, you need to file a tax return now to get any stimulus payments due to you.  

To date, the IRS has delivered million stimulus payments worth about $ billion during the coronavirus relief mandated by the American Rescue Plan Act, which President Joe Biden signed on March  

Many low-income beneficiaries — including recipients of Social Security retirement and disability benefits, as well as recipients of SSI benefits administered by the Social Security Administration — aren’t required to file tax returns, and some of those payments were delayed. The IRS said it was waiting for updated information from the SSA on bank accounts and addresses of federal beneficiaries to ensure the stimulus payments reach eligible individuals. 

AARP has pushed the IRS and the SSA to move more swiftly to get those checks to individuals who don’t file federal income taxes.

“We urge you to provide clear information on the IRS and other federal agency websites about when exactly these groups should expect their payments. Older Americans are counting on these payments to make ends meet. We urge you to prioritize these federal beneficiaries in both your payment distribution and communications efforts moving forward,” Bill Sweeney, AARP’s senior vice president of government affairs, wrote in a letter to IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig on March A similar letter from AARP went to Social Security Commissioner Andrew Saul  on the same day.

On March 25 the SSA gave the IRS the updated information required to begin delivering stimulus checks to some 30 million federal beneficiaries still awaiting payments, Saul said.

As a result, the majority of those who receive Social Security retirement and disability benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Railroad Retirement Board benefits — and didn’t file or tax returns or use the IRS online Non-Filers Tool last year — got their payments around April 7, mostly through direct deposits or payments to existing Direct Express cards. The IRS began sending those 25 million payments, worth $36 billion, on April 2. Additional payments have been sent every week since then.

The updated information from the SSA helped ensure that direct deposits go to correct bank accounts and that paper checks and debit cards go to correct mailing addresses. The revised information should also reduce the number of payments sent to deceased individuals, which was a problem in the first two rounds of economic stimulus. Anyone who died in or earlier isn’t eligible for the third stimulus payment.

Now, however, the SSA says that if you haven’t gotten a first, second or third stimulus payment – or if you haven’t gotten the full amount – you need to file a tax return and claim the recovery rebate credit (RRC) as soon as possible. People should file the tax return even if they have no income to report for When the tax return is processed, the IRS will pay the RRC as a tax refund. The IRS will send any additional third stimulus amount owed in separately. If people already filed their tax return, they do not need to do anything else.

$1,400 Third Stimulus Check Update: 1400 Stimulus Check 3 Social Security SSDI SSI Payment Confirmed

When social security recipients can expect their third stimulus check payment: latest updates

As the IRS delays the latest tax filing date to May 17, it continues to end out the 1, dollar stimulus check to families with a direct deposit on file and finally, Supplemental Security Income ( SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) are due to receive the benefits.

This is the week for those who receive SSI or SSDI Social Security benefits to start looking for their third stimulus check. The federal body projected the "majority of these payments would be sent electronically and received on April 7."

Social Security recipients with a non-US address who don't usually file taxes and receive their benefits via direct deposit or Direct Express will receive their stimulus electronically "on or about April 21," according to the Social Security Administration (SSA).

The new eligibility criteria that apply to the third wave of stimulus payments could assist you in obtaining a bigger check this time around. If you stopped or started receiving SSI or SSDI in or , your situation could become complicated now that it's tax season.

When can Social Security recipients expect the stimulus check?

Even though there has been a delay getting the third payments to around 30 million people who receive benefits from Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, the Railroad Retirement Board and Veterans Affairs, because the Social Security Administration did not send the IRS the necessary paperwork.

But the IRS should have received the information it needed to send the payments last Thursday and announced that many Social Security beneficiaries and many others who don't normally file taxes will start getting their payments by April 7.

Residents can check the status of their payment using the Get My Payment tool on the IRS website.

What if the IRS sends the incorrect amount?

The IRS has said that the third stimulus payments will be based on income. So if you receive a payment before the agency processes last year's return but you qualify for more money based on your income, the agency will top off your stimulus payment at some point this year.

Taxpayers won't have to do anything to get all of the money they are eligible for, except file their returns. If you qualify for less money in , you will not owe any money back.

Prepaid debit cards

"The IRS does not plan to issue prepaid debit cards to beneficiaries for this third round of EIPs," according to the SSA.

Recipients who received a previous stimulus payment as a prepaid debit card, and not on their Direct Express card account, may receive their third stimulus payment as a paper check.

Direct Express payments

Only current Direct Express cardholders can receive their third stimulus payment on their cards. Those who currently don't have a Direct Express card account cannot open one now in order to receive the stimulus funds.

Stimulus payments sent to an account that is closed or no longer active "will be returned and the IRS will reissue the payment," Direct Express said on March

The SSA says residents can receive stimulus funds on their Direct Express card if the following apply:

  • You did not file a or tax return
  • You did not use the IRS' "Non-Filer" tool at the IRS website to provide information to receive a previous stimulus payment
  • You receive your monthly Social Security benefit or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payment via a Direct Express card.

Stimulus check arrival dates for SSI, SSDI beneficiaries and veterans

Federal beneficiaries who file a or tax return or used the Non-Filers tool in may have already received a stimulus payment or could get one in a future batch of checks being sent out by the government.

For almost everyone else, your payment could arrive on April 7 through direct deposit or on your Direct Express card. However, veterans who don't file taxes ordinarily will have to wait until mid-April, according to the IRS. People who have already filed a tax return this year to claim missing stimulus money may find that the IRS will likely use this information instead of your details if it has processed your latest return. Some people may need to file a tax return, even if they don't usually file, so the IRS has all the information needed to send payments to cover your eligible dependents.

VERIFY: Here's when Social Security recipients should see their third stimulus check

WASHINGTON — The third round of stimulus checks hit bank accounts across the country this week, but not every qualifying person has gotten the money. Many have expressed confusion over the stimulus process, from who qualifies to when they would see it hit their bank accounts.

Many who have questions are supported by Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). So, when might they see a stimulus?

The Verify team exists to help give you the answers and sort through any confusion.

Will qualifying Social security recipients get a third stimulus check? When can they expect a check?

ANSWER: Yes. Qualifying individuals will still receive the money in the same way that they receive other benefits. The timeline might look a little different depending on how you get your funds.

The IRS and the Treasury Department announced on March 30 that Social Security recipients will see a majority of the checks sent electronically and receive on April 7 , with payments beginning distribution as early as April 3.

All across social media, people have been sharing their questions about this round of stimulus checks -- including asking why they haven't received theirs. Those who take Social Security have been amongst the many asking our Verify team about why they aren't seeing a payment.

The Verify team went straight to the IRS to find the answer. 

How do I know if I qualify?

According to the latest update from the agency dated March 12,  federal beneficiaries like those on Social Security should still get the third stimulus check in the same way that they receive their other benefits.

And just because you didn't automatically get the first batch of payments doesn't mean you won't get any.

"Additional batches of payments will be sent in the coming weeks by direct deposit and through the mail as a check or debit card," the March 12 IRS update reads. "The vast majority of these payments will be by direct deposit."

"The IRS will automatically send EIP3 (the third stimulus check) to people who didn't file a return but receive Social Security retirement, survivor or disability benefits (SSDI), Railroad Retirement benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Veterans Affairs benefits," the post continues. "This is similar to the first and second rounds of Economic Impact Payments, often referred to as EIP1 and EIP2."

How will it be distributed?

Federal benefits are typically distributed to SSI recipients through their Direct Express card account. The company said that the first batch of stimulus has already been issued,  "with additional batches of payments will be sent in the coming weeks."

On March 30, the IRS and the Treasury Department announced March that Social Security recipients will see a majority of the checks sent electronically and receive on April 7, , with payments beginning distribution as early as April 3. That's the latest timeline we have.

And according to most updated guidelines from Direct Express, only current cardholders are eligible for this third round of stimulus -- meaning if you sign up now, you can receive other benefits, but not this stimulus check. Instead, your stimulus money will be issued in another format that might take a little longer to get to you. 

If you recently closed a Direct Express card, any third stimulus funds that were sent  "will be returned and the IRS will reissue the payment," said the agency.

I don't have a Direct Express Card. What next?

If you didn't have your bank information fully set up on file with the IRS or have one of those Direct Express accounts, your payment might arrive as a paper check or through a different, non-Direct Express Bank Account, or even a pre-paid card. If you have one of those pre-paid cards from previous rounds of stimulus, you'll still get a new one in the mail, because the payments aren't automatically reloaded.

"For those who received EIP1 or EIP2 but don't receive a payment via direct deposit, they will generally receive a check or, in some instances, a prepaid debit card (referred to as an "EIP Card)," the IRS wrote. "A payment will not be added to an existing EIP card mailed for the first or second round of stimulus payments." 

When can I see a deposit?

As for when you might see the new payment, it depends on how you get those funds, whether it be through an EIP card or a physical check. 

The first round of $1, checks began going out through direct deposit on March 17 for millions of Americans, but the IRS said a payment date for those on federal benefits "will be announced shortly." No specific date has been released yet, although updates are expected.

Where can I check the status of my third round of stimulus?

Most residents who received SSI and SSDI benefits in "should not need to take any action" to get their third stimulus payment says the IRS. 

 "Because these payments are automatic for most eligible people, contacting either financial institutions or the IRS on payment timing will not speed up their arrival," the IRS latest update reads.
