Coronavirus (COVID-19): Important Information about Social Security Services

All local Social Security offices will be closed to the public for in-person service starting Tuesday, March 17, 2020. This decision protects the population we serve—older Americans and people with underlying medical conditions—and our employees during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. However, we are still able to provide critical services.

          • Yes it was rude. Many older people who are on social security are very very afraid.

          • Yep! Your response was condescending. Basically as if your’e talking down to someone. Not a good look. Make sure your brain is engaged before you put your mouth in gear.

          • well he’s not the only one or she’s not the only one that feels that it was a rude response. It was a simple yes or no question. That’s why so many people rely on social media these days because they don’t know how to interact with others other than their phone or smartphones have. However I don’t even feel a smartphone is a smartphone why would someone need a smartphone where do we go to school for!

          • Yes, Michelle is correct below. In speaking proper English, one does not answer a question with a question. It is considered rude if one does. The problem is, many people did poorly in English in high school and even college. The other thing is, people can also be too touchy. A better way of handling this would have been, simply stating, it is rude to answer a question with a question. instead of saying that was rude. Let them look it up on GOOGLE and then may be a few people will learn something in speaking or writing. Again, stop and think before you say something.

          • It was a very dismissive answer. Period. Condescending. Something a Gen-xer or younger would say who’d be thrilled if everyone over 62 would get C19 and die.

          • Saying ‘of course’ and ‘why wouldn’t you’? makes it sound uppitty and rude.

          • OMG! Are you listening to yourselves? If we are receiving SS checks, most likely, the majority of us are in the more “vulnerable” population. And you want to argue about rude vs not rude? How about giving ideas to help each other? Exchange phone numbers, email addresses, etc, to folks in similar situations. Maybe a phone call to a person living alone would help spark hope instead of fear. Maybe a funny joke would erase the annoyance of an answer someone didn’t like. C’mon, we’re the “old farts”, we’re supposed to set a good example!?😂

          • For Pete’s sake stop going on anon about the rude comment!! People are freaking dying every day from this virus! Focus on the issue at hand and move on from Rude/Not Rude Topic!

          • Get over it lady .the person was not rude.what do you want .a box of chocolates.oh well boho

          • Yes it is rude answer. Nice if you to reply back in manner like: You should or should not. Better if you can check with government. Better for them understand they just wonder and curious. Hope this help.

          • Yes it was/is. A professional does NOT respond to a person seeking help from a Governmental Office. If, Ms. Marry, you do not feel it was a rude response, please provide your last name so that we can see what your supervisor thinks.

          • Hi, Chrisane. We understand there have been reports about the possibility of additional government payments to individuals due to the economic effects of the Coronavirus. At this time, no law has been passed that calls for Social Security to issue any new payments. We hope this helps to answer your question.

          • Honestly, It could sound that way. People are up tight right now, let’s cut them some slack

          • Phone’s can’t show your emotion, it doesn’t show inflection, or see your hand gestures or face reactions as you write a sentence. So it’s ones own knowledge of their friend that makes a text between two people work., or more understanding of the text. Instead you had to react about a ”rude text”. How is anyone to judge a persons intentions if you don’t know then. So I say shut the hell up,

          • So this conversation started with a question that is also import for me to no the answer but it turned into b.s. this is no time to criticize or be petty

          • Rude!!!! Yes it was extremely rude! I hope if you have a question no one answers you like you did

          • Hi, Claude. We understand there have been reports about the possibility of additional government payments to individuals due to the economic effects of the Coronavirus. At this time, no law has been passed that calls for Social Security to issue any new payments. We hope this helps to answer your question.

          • Yes, it was. The only wrong questions are the ones we don’t ask. I’m sure the person who answered is only guessing, at best. For some this is our only income. Treat others with the respect you would like to receive.

          • It was very rude. You traded that person as if she was a moron when a simple yes or no would have been sufficient.

          • Ok first of all THAT WAS NOT RUDE.i came here to see if my question was discussed but all I read was that was rude that was not back and guys really? How old are you both?!can one of you be the better person and just move on? This is not youtube or other dumb blogs.pll come here to read serious questions and answers.gtfo your feelings and act like normal human beings!

          • Instead of arguing over who was rude, can we get an answer on the question about how it will affect our bennifts if we receive a check, please!

          • Hi
            Will ppl who are currently recieving ssi payment eligible for this 1,000 virus benefit?

          • Wow unreal, I can’t believe that with all the things that are going on in country you are acting like this …shame on you. This is a subject that is Scarry to many,it is their lifeline and crucial to their survival,just imagine being in their shoes. I am assuming you didn’t think about this from all perspectives,as you probably wouldn’t of responded so insensitively.

          • It was a rather dumb question. Sorry. Why in the hell would your checks stop coming (all by direct deposit these days) just because the local offices are closed. Makes no sense whatsoever.

          • You seriously need to get a hobby or a life. Her question was answered and I did not see a thank you and that is rude. You lady have too much time on your hands. There is enough going on w/o your ridiculous input.

          • Can’t we all just get along ?🙏🏾 I wonder the same thing, so do you have to apply for it ? Or are they just going to give it, sense they already have your info?

          • Im wonder if people. On ssi an social security will get 1000. Dollar check does anyone. No thank u

          • People let’s just move on now that’s all I’m reading is whether it was rude or not rude. I’m sure we’ve established what it was and wasn’t now let’s just move on and tackle the issues at hand. I heard someone ask will people on SSDI or SSI receive a stimulus package. That’s a good question I was wondering if we were going to get some kind of stimulus package I did read articles earlier on about how this is going to affect our COLA. The biggest factor of cola is fuel cost and fuel is losing money hand over fist right now so that will make our cola low on the other hand food prices are going up so that’s the second highest factor they use and determining how much of a percentage we get for the cost of living adjustment or cola. So it could be something like last year it could be something small during the Obama years we might not get one at all. I do know that it will affect our cola they did say it would for sure affect our raise at the end of the year just due to the fuel costs alone. It would be nice to get $1,000 per adult however I don’t think that we will be getting that kind of stimulus and here in Flint Michigan they are turning on people’s water for free who otherwise couldn’t afford to get their water turned on. I don’t live in Fliny, I live in a suburb of Flint & we are hooked up to Port Huron water which is safe water and we do pay our water bill quarterly. It would be nice to get some kind of relief from something those of us who own homes and pay mortgages they figure that we get our monthly income no matter what so they don’t really see the need for a stimulus for us. Unless it has to do with health care and being able to get tested for COVID-19 THEN I DON’T REALLY KNOW FOR SURE WHAT WE MIGHT GET. Does anybody have any feedback into stimulus for people who are on SSDI or SSI? Good question. Any input on that?

          • No. SSI is a form of income. people eligible for that is people without income at this time

          • Will someone please just answer the damn question. Will SS participants receive the check.

          • Well I know what’s rude but I haven’t seen an answer yet the the question,Will people on ssi get a stimulus check? There was 50 answers to the rude question.Yous are funny.I’m sitting here laughing at you all.

          • I agree there is
            a more important issue here whether it was rude or not rude who cares there’s a question at hand here will SSI or social security recipients going to get the stimulus benefits

          • Shut up about rude or not! Who cares!!!!
            Someone keeps asking if on SSI or social security will they get stimulus check?

          • Wow. We should all remember we are in this together. i personally dont care if she was rude or not. Just want straight and true answers. We must come together.

          • Dee: A simple
            I understand your concern. Your checks will be delivered as usual.
            You may not like your job, however you are in a professional position. Because of the society we live in, people don’t know when they are being rude.
            Let’s make an effort to be kinder to one another.

          • Seriously, These are adults on here. The lady answered the question and I do not think it was rude but dumb people read it like they will. At least she responded to the question. Grow up. I cant believe these adults on here, no wonder we have teens with no manners. A simple thank you to the lady who would have responded would have sufficed. Arguing if she was rude or not. Grow up people!

          • I am not sure off social security recipients will get the financial stimulus. As at the moment, it appears that only tax payers are set to receive the financial stimulus.

            I do think that the arguing on here is off place, considering both time and circumstance.

            Take care, all.

            My most sincere best wishes to you all!

            – J. Woodlyn

          • Thank you ladies,we don’t need thid RIGHT now.if someone has a polite,respectable way 2 answer question.please answer in a civil manner.Many of us might not BE here in a couple of kind to your neighbors.

          • I guess I opened a can of worms I guess asking a stupid question ,for I guess a stupid answer . Well when these smart mouth people get to be our age I am sure they will be crying

          • FYI Dee is NOT a Social Security employee answering rudely. ALL Social Security employees who answer or comment will have the SSA designation next to their name as the writer!

          • I don’t receive my ssi direct deposit but w direct express. Will that cause a problem? Also,will the stimulus checks be placed on the card of those who receive ssi through direct express cards?

          • So do SSI/SSA recipients get the stimulus payment or no? Never saw an answer that many are worried about and NOT if someone was rude or not….so stimulus package for elderly and disabled??

          • Will SSDI recipients receive any part of the stimulus package recently announced?

          • In 2008 the country when in recetion. and I received a stimulus payment for 600 dollars and receive disability payments its all citizens not only the ones that file incomes taxes. It wouldn’t be fare

          • I am a tax payer
            As of 2001 they send out income forms like a w2 with social security. I pay taxes on my social security. I also paid taxes on it when I paid it in

          • All thIs emotional back and forth…stop it!
            The real question from everyone should be:
            Will the Coronavirus $1000 be eligible for recipients of social security!
            If you all stop with the sensitivity and everyone posts the same question who knows! There might actually be a responce to this question. IMHO👍

          • I think you guys are being rude! People are trying to help you. Quit thinking so much of your self.

          • Someone is trying to ask a question do people with social security or SSI get the stimulus check of $1,000 I’ll try to ask this question very nicely no negative people please

          • Yes, people on Disability will receive additional funds in response to the corona-virus.. I am not sure of the amount as of yet. AND PLEASE STOP clogging up this feed. People are asking legitimate questions and all I see are these ridiculous comments about if a “comment was rude or not rude” Who cares and
            move on!

          • Dont you think it is stupid to fight over this guestion when there is so much fighting in this world. Grow up

          • Is someone going to make an attempt to answer the question about the proposed $1000 check instead of worrying whether someone was rude? Their only printed words with 0% emotion-GROW UP

          • Will someone just answer the question? You are acting like little kids. Grow up

          • I’m wondering 5he same thing but I can’t get a rational answer! Someone please help with an answer.

          • I’m on SSI and in 2008, obama sent us all a $300 check for singles, and $600 for familys. It came in at a good time, I needed my car fixed. Hope this one comes in to.

          • Get over it and stick to the facts. We don’t want to hear all these whiny little B… comments. We want facts. It is everyone’s right to be concerned and ask for information.

          • Ya se ha dicho que NO!!! Nobody receiving SSI will enjoy to receive that stimulus check

        • Not rude! Blunt! Notioning the thought already considered! ” of course we will get our monthly sum checks!” As always,when the government help, S in as such as the stimulus check, S in previous year, s, everyone on social security received heir monthly sum and the stimulus check came in shortly after! PERCEPTION! HOW SOMEONE PERCIEVES SOMETHING! The lame condemning mark, S are un-necessary! I truly believe and may speak out that this person who answered he question was stating an obvious SPEAKING DOWN TO THE REMARK,S RIGHT AFTER THIS ONE…. OF COURSE! THE GOVERNMENT ALWAYS PAYS THE SUM EVERY MONTH, REGARDLESS! JUST LIKE IN THE PAST YEARS ,EXTRA PAYMENTS DONATED BY THE GOVERNMENT TO ASSIST PEOPLE IN NEED IN THEIR COUNTRY WILL BE SENT IN A DIFFERENT CHECK, SORTLY BEFORE OR SHORTLY AFTER! I truly believe this person is sincere with the answering of a question, many are aiming to receive an answer on! THANK YOU!

          • Wow such immature adults sad .. unbelievable that over a question being ask people had to be so childish and rude and all others followed wow instead of a simple answer …guess it shows how you r kids are gonna address people ..its so sad
            With the way the world is .and still people act this way …..

          • So if you go to it says that the phase 3 of the bill dose included the people on ssi and ssdi

          • How old are the ones that are acting like this. I mean seriously come on now it’s enough going on to be on here acting like a bunch of damn kids this doesn’t make any sense what’s soever move on with the back and forth and answer the question if you can if not maybe you should get off of here and go play tic tac toe cause clearly you got a lot of growing up you still need to do Really

          • Would someone please just ans we r the damn question on ssi,ssd,ssdi. Etc.will we get extra money as alot of us now have to pay someone to run errands, go shopping for us etc.

          • I dont think the question can be answered because the stimulus package has not been finalized. I have read comments by law makers that individuals on social security might receive a smaller amount of the $1000. I know that they have not finalized the bill so at this point there is no money going to anyone until the bill passes the senate. I do believe that the individual was trying to insure the person that they would receive their funds. It is a very logical question since the Social Security offices are officially closed effective March 17th. According to the website payments should continue as normal unless you were expecting changes to your funds for the month of March which is delivered via check or direct deposit in the month of April.

          • No, we will not. Unless you file a tax return, you will not be eligible. Lame but thats how its worked in the past. They stated people who make over a certain amount a year, will not be eligible and they determine this based on tax return so since most people on SSI dont file tax returns, we wont be in the system and thus wont get a check

          • Yes the workers will receive a check as well as people that receive social security disability I just found out

          • Omg. I seriously fell out of my chair laughing with this convo going on here. Thanks y’all, I needed this hysterical read.

          • do SS recipients receive money from the coronavirus stimulus??? Yes or No

          • 1st stimulus check gets mailed out on April 6th and the 2nd check will be mailed out on May 18th!

        • Yes it was rude! everyone wonders about their income even people on social security they asked a question and I didn’t see where it asked for a smart ass response, I was always taught if you cant say anything nice say nothing at all!

          • Both of you, SHUT UP!! Will you please answer the fucking question about the $1,000.
            If not, get the hell off here so someone else can help these people.

          • That’s not what was said at all. People on SSI ,Welfare ,,foodstamp ,etc will get it faster because of there direct deposit. People with lower income spend stimulas money quicker which is good for the economy. Also this group of people the gov. Has all there income records on file which makes it getting it out to them easier. Just look up Crona-19 stimulas info and you should be able to get into or hear TV news broadcast about it.

          • @Gaysa where did u see that post/info on the SSID beneficiaries receiving a stimulus check??

          • I agree with you, so many rude comments. What ever happened to neighbor helping neighbor. I miss the days when people were kind and respectful. I fear for the next generation. This is becoming such a cruel world. I can only imagine what God would say about all this, shame.

          • Every one is getting a check, even people on SSA or SSD, the first round of checks are being sent out on April 6th, the second round of checks is being sent out on the 26th of April to ensure everyone gets a check, you are in the system, even though you don’t file taxes your in the government system, the only person or people that will not receive a check are the homeless people that have no address

          • Incase anyone is interested I just read where the stimules check would not be considered earned income for SS or SSI or SSDa so apparently they are going to send people on SS , SSI, SSDA a stimules check also. I read from Social Security that it would not affect anyone’s checks

          • I called my local ssi office and thy said thy have’nt heard one way or the other if we are getting a stimulus check? I cant see them excluding 63million people? if you send us a check to that is 63million people putting more into the economy. further boosting economy and avoid recession

          • Drop it already old old news. I’m being blunt not rude you all sound like preteen girls arguing over a doll grow the hell up and answer the question or let the adults back on to answer it. Geez children act older than the whiners of your use no I’m not yes you are uh uh. That’s how you idiots sound..

          • Sure is a lot of rude people on here. Did anyone tell all you, no question is a dumb question..

          • Please ppl can we all focus on the issue thats being asked about the $1,000 for ssi,ssdi . it makes no sence that your worried about who is rude or not, we as human being can do better than this, i for one am very concerned about weather ppl on ssi or ssdi will recieve anything because we have bills just like the recipient who was blessed to file income taxes, don’t anyone think this is an injustice to us that wasnt blessed to file taxes??

          • I agree that, we all should just stick to answering questions for people who are truly seeking answers, tempers are flaring, people are scared, CANT WE ALL JUST GET ALONG? 😊

          • Teresa and Margrate did y’all read how much those on ssi or ssd would receive?

        • Yes that was really rude. A lot of people been brought up that way and they bring it on to others. That’s why everyone relies on social media is cuz they can’t interact with others. That’s my opinion anyways. That person didn’t have to be rude like that because I feel that was a question that needed to be answered and if you didn’t ask it we would never have known..

          • You people are like children. Spending more time debating a simple whether it was rude or not and wasting space and people’s time on trying to find out if it includes those on SSDI and SSI. Grow up adults, you are acting worse than children. STOP

          • Ya all got ta run your mouths that’s why nothing gets done it’s ayes or no answer any one from the government there or ya all on break like normal

          • Ya all got ta run your mouths that’s why nothing gets done it’s ayes or no answer any one from the government there or ya all on break like normal

          • The answer is yes…if both the House & Senate pass the bill. The way the bill looks today, it will be deposited the same way you receive you monthly benefit now. As to when? It’s the government so your guess is as good as mine. Again, NO bill has been passed yet. Hope that helps.

          • I don’t think anybody can truly answer the question yet. This has to be approved by Congress and only then will anybody know. Period…..

          • Nothing has changed with your income status as someone that has recently lost their jobs via the corona pandemic you should not receive or be compensated if you have no change in your Finance or your lifestyle due to reasons of this pandemic.

          • You will only get the stimulus check if you filed taxes. So SSIwill not be getting the money ! It’s bullshit I know because I receive said myself and could really use the money ! The ones that need it most don’t get it ! Make sense of that shit !!!!

          • For all you, bipolar, skitzo dummies, that have to keep stirring the shit bucket, go.lick a toilet seat you dumbass morons, grow up, buncha mental nutnut,check recipients. Damn. Stop being stupid. Geez, YES YOU WILL GET A STIMULAS CHECK IF YOU’RE ON SSDI. I SEEVWHY SOME OF YOUR RETARDED ASS CHILDISH ACTIING RETARDS GET THAT CHECK. TRY ADULTING FIR ONCE, IT’S AWESOME. 😎😉✌🇺🇸🥂💵💵💵💵💵💵💵💵💵💵💵💵💵💵

          • yes you will get check, just as we all did in 2008. i have did research and followed on updates. Please do not worry yourself. I myself am more worried about the virus. I hope you all keep well.

          • Yes you will get a SSI check and if you are on SSD you will also get one anyone that works has low income or elderly people will receive the money

          • I rather those with real disabilities get money than these animals like Kevin above mocking people . Can’t we replace these soulless low life psychopaths with dogs lol

          • I scrolled all the way down hoping the rude conversation was over🤣Quarantine or not people to stay silly but the person was not trying to be rude she was just answering A Question.
            This crap is Contagious!!!!!! I’m locking my doors turning off my phone🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

          • From my my understanding it doesn’t matter if you file taxes all Americans will receive a stimulus check. So if you get direct deposit via SSI/SSD it will be on ur card on if you receive a paper ck u will get it via us mail .. Think about it, u worked ur while life paying taxes, why wouldn’t get it????

        • I don’t think so I took that response in a rather kind way “of course you will, why wouldn’t you.”. Individual such as yourself with negative attitudes or negative outlook on things. Look for ways to fibd something rather simple and create drama!!!

          • From what I have read they are sending 2 rounds of checks. The people who will receive this check are people who do taxes because this is not free money you will be paying it back next year.

        • Your comment that it was a rude response shows more that you lack good manners to make a point of that. She answered the question and to me sounded like she was trying to reassure her. You are rude here. If you have nothing nice to say, then be quiet.

        • I am just concerned that those of us on disability Social Security will not be included in the 2020 stimulus package. I have been Googling and searching online for an answer. Why is this info kept from us? Something smells weird.


          • I’ve been disabled (SSDI) since 2004 – I’ve never received a stimulus check. My thought, it’s because I am not required to file taxes. I’ve tried to search for answers to the COVID 19 “stimulus checks,” will SSDI SSI Retired receive checks. We pay taxes – State, City/utility, gas, etc. — many do not file a tax return.

          • If you get a check it may be less than what working people get. People who work 40 hrs and depend on a check and are out of work should receive more. People on SSI or SSDI or welfare or whatever will not have a time when they don’t get their regular check or food stamps. Working people will have no income if their jobs are shut down so they are in need of the stimulus check. People who make OVER $75000 as single or $150,000 couples won’t get a check.

            The checks will be on a tier based on income and family size. I believe if you get a check it will/should be less than people who work full time

          • it smells what it is s…!! that’s why its taking so long for ones who lost jobs a lot of us lost jobs in pass due to injury illness or old age we didn’t get a stimulus we suffered and drag through hoops a loops for months or years before we got help people die waiting when in need . join the poor club nothing at the dinner table but crumbs .welcome.

        • In Texas we would just say bless your heart… Realizing that some people do not have the mental capacity to realize would they are being rude

          • I kept scrolling and scrolling, I can’t believe how long that stupid conversation went on unreal

          • You are the stupid one. Anyone has the right to ask whatever question they are concerned about. If you can’t handle that just get off the site!!!

        • This is not the time or the place to be arguing about what is rude or not. Like Dr. Phil says, someone please step up and be the hero of this story. Let shit go. We’ve got way bigger problems.

          • Wow!!!! Everyone on here needs a refresher coarse in courtesy, decency, & just plan manners! The question was answered in a very condescending way…Think for a moment if you had a concerning question, you ask,and some says back to you Yes,why wouldn’t you…that’s right up there with “what do you think? It was a rude answer and I personally would have been insulted by the lack of compassion. I am also on disability and I get the concern and with everything shutting down ppl are just trying to figure out what they need to do . Alot of you posting these hateful comments probably are lucky to not have to rely on the government. ..I myself have to due to an accident at work ( falling down 30 stairs…cement at that) so why don’t ALL OF YOU GROW UP! Shut your nasty mouths so ppl can find out what they need to know…

          • Actually its $2000. And from what i am reading on the internet is Yes.. first payment is expected 04/06/2020 and 2nd payment 05/18/2020 and should be added to regular monthly benefit check..

        • Omgoodness!! Really? At a time like this you’re going to get upset over someone trying to help but didn’t answer the way you thought they should have?

        • I agree Diane. It was rude when it was only a question for anyone to answer. If you can’t be nice, please be quiet. Thanks

          • I can’t believe how many comments their are about if the first comment was rude or not. WOW!!!! Ifeel so sorry for Grandkids that have to grow up and live with you bunch of Idiots.
            Who cares if it was rude or not. LET IT GO. Someone just has to get the last word. Your all just a bunch of kids yourselves.
            Now, how many think that my comment was RUDE? 🤷🏼‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

        • I consider myself intelligent and I do not think Dee was rude in any way. I think she was reassuring. And you all should lighten up.

        • You people are like a bunch of little kids, “it was rude, no it wasn’t rude, yes it was rude, no it wasn’t rude yada! yada! Yada!
          Don’t you all think we have enough to worry about other than squabbling like little kids.


        • Will those on SSDI receive stimulus check, my electric going to get very high and water bill high my food cost went up, extra money gone. all because we have been locked down at home practically.

          • From my understandings, yes. The amount is yet to be determined, but speculative dates of April 6 and May 18 for the checks. Also speculated to be calculated based on “per adult” “per child”… Have also read they could just be added to our regular monthly payment. Sent via direct deposit or whatever form you receive your monthly entitlement. See alot of speculating in there, because though it has been confirmed there WILL be a check, larger than other stimulus in the past. The underlying facts have not been put out yet, because well there are quite a few proposals, and agreements to be made. Rest assured, they have said it IS coming!

          • No, not unless you show you earned and were taxed. You get a zero. Its all tied to tax returns and the more you made the MORE you get. Sounds typical doesn’t it.

        • You know what’s rude all the people buying all the toilet paper and everyone buying out all the groceries that’s rude

          • Lol all the stores need to put a limit on products going by house hold size and I find looking at all this drama like a soap opera I just. Ignore the crazy cuz I’m crazy unuff but it’s funny and sad watching this I might need popcorn.

        • I have to say that, everyone should be worried about protecting their selves, and loved ones at this time. Instead of crap on the blog, its absolutely childish and you all should be ashamed of yourself. Concentrate on keeping your selves, and loved ones safe. 😷🙏

        • I call the social security office this morning and ask where people that getting they disability was they going to get the $1000. They said it still up in the air no decision have been made. But if we going to get it we would get a letter in the mail

        • I’m sure you didn’t intend it to be but it did come off as rude. As there won’t be workers we are not sure how checks are processed…

          • I have a joke. I’m a single grandparent raising two grandchildren when I lost my son two years ago. I’m an amputee but do great getting around but have other health issues and they are great kids and help me a lot. We are here for each other. Of course with this virus , no school so we start a remote computer based home school tomorrow so the kids are in school. First thing I thought of was , well God got back in school all over the country ! 😊 And if they don’t do their work , I get to be the principal 😊 Have a good day folks, and be kind to one another and God will get us through this. Pray for our President and leaders and follow the rules and we will be fine ❤️

          • Hi, Dorothy. We understand there have been reports about the possibility of additional government payments to individuals due to the economic effects of the Coronavirus. At this time, no law has been passed that calls for Social Security to issue any new payments. We hope this helps to answer your question.

        • If you are only 30 years old and you get SSI checks do you get a stimulus check from President Trump yes or no please let me know thank u so much for your help and everything

          • Hi, AJ. We understand there have been reports about the possibility of additional government payments to individuals due to the economic effects of the Coronavirus. At this time, no law has been passed that calls for Social Security to issue any new payments. We hope this helps to answer your question.

        • It wasnt rude..its just yhst the person was in shock that this is not will NEVER. EVER. Keep from you what’s already yours.on the promised date.what is shocking is that people who retire at 62,instead of their actual programmed retire age..will NEVER receive more than what you get at 62. I feel like they punished me for not working another 7 years..with all they kept,,they can pay two or three more retirees. Me. In the poorhouse ..40 years lost to stingy employers who dont know how to value

        • It sounds somewhat rude, but more somebody who’s got their panties in a knot. I coulf think of about 50 reasons why we wouldn’t receive our monthly check

        • You know, I’m disgusted by the way you all are speaking. Instead of wasting time arguing about something that won’t mean a thing tomorrow, why don’t you figure out how you can make a difference in this horrible situation and help each other, not hurting each other. Not in a million years would I let my child talk to someone the way you all are carrying on. We are all scared, tense, so let’s help one another. Don’t we have enough anger in the world?

        • Yes it was. I wondered the same thing earlier on. No one knows anything at this point about these kind of questions. This is all so new to everybody. Please don’t let that idiot make you feel bad.


        • I don’t think that was a rude response, I think Dee was asking why Debbie would think she isn’t getting her monthly check so that she or he could help with the right answer or give some information that would help that’s all.

        • Get over yourself Diane. How many times do you think Dee has answered that question? These are unusual difficult times.

        • Yes it was quite rude unless you were not taught manners growing up.And it looks like you were never taught manners!!!!🤨🤨

        • that was not rude u have a problem lady !!! this is rude!! God made coronavirus because the world is becoming uncontrollable .getting rid of the assholes that makes the world nasty

        • I don’t think was a rude response either. Nothing was ever said about taking Americans money. Only giving. So why wouldn’t you.

        • Almost all the responses to the rude answer are rude. Will I still get my check..of course why wouldn’t you..
          Ummm..what’s rude unless of course the ssa computer’s get a virus

      • That was my concern too. I kind of thought so, but wanted to make sure because I depend on it to make ends meet. Thank you, try to have as good a day as possible!

        • With this covid19 novel coronavirus goin on Mrs.Jenny I strongly believe the Senate is goin to pass this bill especially with kids bein outta school now till April 15th this year

          • Our kids in Indiana are out till May 1st. It was announced today. Stay safe and have a great night.

        • Last time there there were stimulus checks given out, social security recipients and ssi/ssdi recipients received stimulus checks. As for the $1,000 check, not so sure if you will get the full amount. I have not heard anything. The stimulus bill has to pass first. Maybe when it gets passed they will say if social security recipients get a check.

          • It’s actually harder on people on fixed incomes to stock pile basic day to day needs and medications. As for me I live alone and have no other income.

          • we are having a hard time with the increase in prices on things. plus having to go to town more than normal to get to stores when there are supplies in there. I am spending money i wouldnt normally spend.

          • I don’t know where you all were but being on Sadi I didn’t get anything from the stimulus last time. And I don’t believe we will get anything this time if we do joy pay taxes.. in this country if your not in the system your screwed even if you get money from the government.

        • i am trying to find out as well if those who do not file taxes will be included. i survive on the generosity of friends who now cannot help me because of coronavirus. so, it is important to me to get some help as i have no money at present to live on. it dried up because of the virus…i have less than $100 to last ….forever. can’t pay bills, scared to death. the $1000 would be amazing help…

          • Best thing said on this Crazy Blog..Hey wake up Evil selfish people..! Most people NEED..that extra $1000. JUST TO LIVE ON..! Time to Pray and Seek Jesus..and Help each other..!

          • This has nothing to do with tax filing like before. You will get a stimulus check.

        • I work at a part time job plus draw my social security to make ends meet wondering because I’m old and work part time will I qualify. When the schools shut down I dont work .my little part time job brings in about 500 a month.i wonder if I would even qualify for unemployment. So I feel you all.i have lived threw hooping cough,polio,leaganaries, sars mars,and small pox.i have never seen people act like this..

          • Because this is different Charlotte, it’s more like the plague,
            ( which was hundreds of years ago). It’s a Pandemic , and it will change life as we know it. Just do what they tell you to do. And remember we are all in this together. Lots of people will survive, be careful and be smart and may God be with us all.

          • I am really wondering and worried too. I’m on SS disability and I also could really use this.

          • So thru research my sister works for ssa and says the bill has to pass first then we will get an update and the possibility of receiving a check is there is a 90% chance we will receive it

          • Yes I read in an article that all Americans other than the rich will get the check that means all people outta work who is on a fixed income and those who receive disability and said will receive the stimulus check

          • Yes please share. It is hard enough to get through to the office. And will ours be depenced on our benefits?

          • All of these comments are just hilarious 🤣🤣 I can’t believe these comments

          • Same here. We struggle to begin with. And getting supplies is hurting us badly.

          • Ok all I can say is the ppl who dont work get food stamps rent payed. Medical. better not get a dime I worked 35 yrs. And payed my share of taxes

          • Shey I worked most of my adult life starting when I was 14 at times working two jobs to support my three children I paid in taxes all them years so I don’t feel the least bit guilty about receiving disability when I got sick and Medicare and the $17 in food stamps a month I get. So get off your high horse you act like everybody scamming the system most aren’t

          • If you pay taxes then you get $1000 if you don’t pay taxes you won’t get it….It is to help the ones paying taxes to make their payments while everything is shut down so gov. is getting it back anyway .

          • I worked 60-70 hours a week for 15 years had some strokes and on ssi I paid tones of Tex’s in my life my family struggles over paying bills. Why Should I be left out

          • People are really sad.stop all this panic ‼️ and going back n forth about a comment the response was rude

          • Nothing is free in this life ! I truly believe, it will be paid back . Americans need to forget all this he / she is rude ! Who cares move on !! Lives are being lost , because of this virus !!! We need to all come together !! Love thy neighbor !!

          • From what I’ve read there trying to pass $1200. But it’s to people that have filed taxes. So does this mean if we’re on SSI or SDI and don’t file taxes we don’t get thev$1200.???

        • AvatarPeople plz there’s enoroseugh going on they are still answering the phone or she can if available go on her computer ss. Gov on said:

          Everyone will hear tomorrow’

          • People’s buy a blow dryer put on lowand keep your sinuses dry it kills virus in 15minutes reasearch it

          • From what I read they said in the next two weeks, they didn’t pacifically say who can and can’t get the help. Only said low income and middle class workers. There’s nothing even saying it’s a definite gonna get either from what I read. Just says u may get.

          • Well happy late saint Patty’s day everyone may u all stay well in good health god bless u all

          • Please don’t let your sinuses get dry. Keep your sinuses’s what prevents infections from getting in. I put a dab of mentholatum or vaseline at the entrance, not inside, my nostrils.

          • From my understanding, the question of those on SSDI getting the $1000 stimulus, is being ignored. Therefore it must not yet be determined just who is getting it. 🙁 The only reasonable explanation. Possibly ironing things out yet. I would check back here in a day or two. You know this administration tends to jump before things are finalized.

          • It depends on how the bill will be passed, really won’t know anything until then, since SSDI is not welfare like SSI I do believe we will have a greater chance.

          • Jennifer you don’t have to do anything if you get SSI or SS they have your info and will deposit your check into your account. My Neice work for the Social Security admin and she said every Americans will get the payment, if you make or get under 100k. a year.

          • Jennifer you will receive it. It will be deposited in your bank account just like your other check.. Thank you

        • n 2009, the Economic Stimulus Act sent out $14.2 billion in stimulus checks.1

          2 The one-time payment went to recipients of Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, and veterans’ benefits.

          The checks were part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Congress passed the ARRA to end the 2008 financial crisis. The government’s goal was that recipients would immediately spend the checks. That would be a quick, direct way to jumpstart economic growth.

          • Thank you. You are literally the only one that answered the question we are Al wondering. 😁

          • Which doesn’t mean Trump will do the same. But. I would think they should do that for everyone.

          • Lots of questions, but no one has addressed my issue. I’m over 65 and have no earned income – only Social Security. As such, I’m no longer required to file tax returns. I heard the same thing that someone else mentioned, “anyone who files a tax return” will receive the $1000 check. Since I no longer file returns, will I still be eligible? Perhaps, through direct deposit, like my monthly payment? Thanks!

          • I beg to differ. I’ve been on SSDI since 2004, and have never received stimulus money.
            Many folks – like myself – are wondering if folks who aren’t required to file taxes, will receive stimulus assistance.
            I’m still searching on here – as well as other internet sources, what the answer definitely is.

          • Joe,..Cash payments of up to $1,200 would go to individuals, with up to $2,400 for couples. The sum would increase by $500 for every child. The check totals would start to phase out above $75,000 in adjusted gross income based on 2018 tax returns. People with no federal tax liability would get only $600.

          • I’ve read that we may ne looking at checks within the next two weeks, supposedly. I haven’t read if SSI recipients will get it or not but I dont see why we won’t. We’re spending all our money right now during all this.

          • 2008 I did not get that one. Although this is different a type. This is suppose to help people. Let’s just hope they include us.

          • I hope so. They said on the news that the “working American” will receive a check

          • Jeff here it is,,,Cash payments of up to $1,200 would go to individuals, with up to $2,400 for couples. The sum would increase by $500 for every child. The check totals would start to phase out above $75,000 in adjusted gross income based on 2018 tax returns. People with no federal tax liability would get only $600.

          • I’m not holding my breath on it. It would be great and very helpful, but until the bill is actually signed, we won’t know. As it stands right now McConnell is looking more at big business bailouts than the American public as a whole. Mainly for people making 75,000 a year and the amount goes down from there. Anyone making less than 40,000 get nothing, so obviously any of us on a fixed income don’t matter. Sad. Hopefully before this bill actually passes it will change. The president has changed his story so many times over so many different issues, it’s not really a surprise. I understand that people that are working to support themselves and families are in a bind as well, due to closures and layoffs, but don’t we matter as well. I worked since I was 16, now with respitory issues I can barely leave my house without losing my breath and having to stop and lean on a tree or a pole. Currently holding up in my house to try to ride this out. No one in or out, only to my door for fresh air. I’m sure I’m not alone in this.
            Good time to remember this is an election year, obviously I’m not a “Trumper”.

        • I was wondering this too as I am on SSI. Will it be direct deposit for those who get their SSI through their bank account?

          • I heard on the National News with Davis Muir, that “all adults” will receive the stimulus. They didn’t say, only those presently employed, or those getting SSA or SSI – they indicated ALL ADULTS.

            One person asks a simple question, hoping for reasonable responses – and everyone that is bored at home has to make nasty comments and act foolish. If you don’t grow up, you won’t be considered an adult, and won’t get a check!! We need to support each other right now. You’re probably the ones hoarding all the TP as well.

            No more comments are needed.

        • I read what the rules for Soc. Sec. and SSI recipients were in 2008. If you had no tax liability, including no income– you just have to file a tax return stating that you have no taxable income.
          The government needs to know who to send checks to and Social Security & IRS are inbred for purposes of this discussion. The checks are going to go to you if you give the courtesy of informing the government that you’re still alive and what address to mail a check to. For direct deposit recipients, a separate direct deposit arrives on or about your usual payment time.
          I’m surprised that none of you took the time to research this yourselves.

          • Not correct!
            The government knows everyone who is on SS. You don’t tell them you are not filing. Government knows.

          • People on SSI wont be getting the checks, and yes the ones on SSDI have to file taxes From that year.

          • I file before but just haven’t this year how do I do what you’re saying

          • so if we’re on SSI disability we get the stimulus check or not it’s a simple question no one can answer it and we’ve got to be smart asses on here

      • Wow lol and she still has the nerves to act clueless like she didn’t get blessed with a brain and act like she wasn’t rude.

        • Can we all just get along. This is something that has never happened in the 7 Contents. I would suggest contacting “WZZM 13 facts and check”… They will post the answers to your questions on the news because some of the comments that I’m seeing on this website is not called for. This is a time for a United Front!!!!!

        • Everyone is saying yes, but I do bot believe those on Ssi…SSDI will receive a stimulus check. This check is to make up for the fact people are unable to work due to Covid19-wether because they contracted it or because of work being shut down, or the need for isolation. So I son’t see how that would apply to Ssi/ssdi?

          • Actually, yes. Every American, even those on every aspect of social security, and state aid, WILL be getting a stimulus check. This is due to the fact that president Trump , the senate, and congress all agree that it would take too long to go thru every American to see what their income is, etc. And they want to get these checks out asap.
            (Per: The Washington Post 3/18/2020)

          • Well I think trump should of be more clear about who in the low income ppl will get it me I’m on ssi for learning disability’s and because of our slum lord bump ur moldy rotten mfh rent up and other bills trying to get paid and taking care of 2 baby’s it’s been hard and also trying to get our family van fixed is impossible with what little money we have so if we the ssi ssdi ppl get a extra check would be a blessing and give us a chance to get ahead on bills or repairs

            I know we already get gov help but it’s not enough with the price of living and surviving month by month

            The family and me don’t even have cable just internet and Hulu besides that we can’t afford cable and stuff like that

            And ps
            The person that keeps saying
            (I see why ur on ssi )
            This is call internet bullying and is a federal crime

          • I read that everyone with a SS# will receive the stimulus check. When they determine the Cap of how much money you make a year you may have to pay it back in next years taxes. I think it’s at about 85,000.00 ! Read this in the LA times article.

          • Some congress people are requesting that those individuals on Social Security would receive a smaller amount. The theory is that these funds are being provided to help individuals who are losing pay because of the virus. Law makers are looking at it as if those on social security are not losing wages, because the ssi and social security payments will be mailed as normal. It also should be known that in 2008 individuals who did not pay taxes in 2007 or who owed student loans, taxes or other garnishments to the government did not receive the payment in 2008. The Senate has not signed the bill so as far as it goes at this point no one is getting the money until the bill has passed the senate and at that time I am sure there will be more information available.

          • No. You are wrong. The topic is who will receive a $1000 stimulus check. We all will if Uncle Sam sees our Social Security number pop up on the IRS rolls.
            The payments for working people is a completely different matter.
            The bill to be passed after the all adult who bother to register by filing a tax return that says you owe no taxes….
            well, the following bill will send money to help cover a crippled unemployment benefit agency, whatever it is called in your state. In the same bill, there will be monies sent to employers who (under penalty of perjury) swear that the money sent to them is to be passed onto the employees of the distressed businesses. This is supposed to carry the employees over until they get regular hours again or before their unemployment insurance kicks in.
            Then, there’s the bill that will send off fireworks. A $2.5 Billion payout to keep distressed companies with operating capital. This money will need to repaid by the corporations (at 0% interest). Real Americans got really pissed that we gave them a $5 Billion dollar stimulus to increase investment of new factories and hiring new workers, and give raises to the working poor. (McDonalds)
            Of course the corporations paid their executives huge bonuses, paid dividends to their wealthy investors, and bought up stock of their own companies. (This sudden stock purchasing ran the stock value higher for executives paid partly by stock blizzards.
            So, sort it out. I already outlined how YOUR $1000 bucks will arrive IF you can stop bickering and download or pick up the current tax forms- and file them before Wednesday, April 15.
            You now understand how you will act… if you really want the dough.
            Good luck.

          • I understand that people are going to loose there paychecks because of not being able to go to their jobs but those of us that are disabled just spent what we have just to stock up on things in our house. I don’t get very much but I am thankful to GOD that I get through each month this is hard on all Americans no matter where there income comes from. Can we all get along and help each other out in our time of need thats what Americans do be proud of who we are we are the American people let’s act like it GOD bless you all be safe safe and love one another GOD heal our minds body and souls in Jesus name amen.

          • i was thinking with all the price gouging it is hard for us to afford to pay for things. getting into money we use to pay for other things. I would think we would but you are right we have some income coming in inspite of how fast it is going out right now.

          • From what I have heard/read ONLY tax payers will receive a stimulus payment. SSDI is considered non-taxable income. I think if it is true that as a group we are being excluded it is a cruel gesture on the part of the government not to help care for the most vulnerable members in our society. Myself included. God save us all.

          • Many disabled people have to work because the check is way too low. I lost my part time job and can not longer pay my rent . Stop acting like people who get a check don’t work . I need an answer because I may commit suicide if I don’t get one. I did not ask to be autistic and need my part time job for food. My check only covered rent and utilities because it is not enough to live off of. If I lost my part time job and filed more then 2,500 in taxes in 2018, will I get the check too? This virus will cause more death by people committing suicide than the actual virus .

          • The article that I Googled from The Washington Post stated taxpayers or people that filed taxes

          • I just wanna find toilet paper i can get delivered to home so i don’t have to go out more than necessary I wish people would stop hoarding and leave some for those of us that are on a fixed income. THAT WE HAVE SPENT OUR LIVES PAYING TAXES FOR AS WELL AS THOSE EMPLOYED NOW!!!

        • No. I read the only people eligible are the ones that filed a tax return. People on SSI, SSDI, SS retirement, will NOT be eligible.

          • That’s bad. People on SSI have the very lowest income and the elderly on SSI have hardly any food stamps. This is hurting them too. Bad!

          • McConnell stated this morning disabled people and people that were unemployed would get paid.


          • I think that’s messed up if people on SSI don’t get one because we need it toi.. the measly 783 that I get a month I barely am able to pay my bills and very little food stamps. We should be able to receive a little extra too. We matter too.

          • Why don’t we all just wait and see what the bill that goes before the house and Senate says about who gets the check. Be patient. It should be soon.

          • Not true. Has nothing to do with tax filing. This is a stimulus that is different than anything ever. Every adult will receive a check…Period. SSDI, SSI, etvc

          • wrong…Cash payments of up to $1,200 would go to individuals, with up to $2,400 for couples. The sum would increase by $500 for every child. The check totals would start to phase out above $75,000 in adjusted gross income based on 2018 tax returns. People with no federal tax liability would get only $600.

          • I hope I get a stimulus check in order to be able to assist my children who have lost there jobs. Blessing others is what we need to do no matter how big or small. I can eat beans and rice. Don’t want my children homeless, especially now. May God bless and protect us all.

        • If you have been paying attention- EVERY AMERICAN- EVERY AMERICAN- as long as they can account for you- meaning- veritable address etc is accurate and up to date and correct. You , and your dependents – IF you have any WILL RECEIVE your checks. Hope this helps 😊Have a great evening 💕

      • Perhaps she thought the COVID 19 may effect when the checks are sent out. You could have just said, “Yes, everyone will still get their checks because the system is automated.

      • I also thought it was condescending and an undertoned way to say “yeah idiot”. You should understand some people aren’t exactly knowledgeable about how government funding works and a lot of people nowadays are constant victims to false and misleading news all over social media, especially when it comes to political/financial issues. So I find it very easy and too common that people need answers to such questions.

      • Do you know if us on SSI get a $1000.00 check to from government their talking about right now? And don’t be rude either😄😄😁😁

      • She’s just being cautious because they have suspended the government at one point and they withheld my Disability check, understand I received back pay when they started up again, but not the point, listen people on SS weather it be retirement, disability, SSI, ETC. we don’t receive enough as it is, for them to shut down that’s really bad for us.

        • Yes very good answer people on SS and ssd down make enough money I should know .. At the beginning of the year I was kicked of extra help for my Medicare and medicine over a 33 dollar raise .. So I a single person that pays 145 dollars for Medicare 35 dollars for drug plan and 20 percent for every Dr I go to.. I worked for almost 15 your in health care and always worked 60 to 75 hrs a week .. I’m have many health issues know and can’t work anymore because of them .. I don’t think that anyone on ss or ssd can make know a days I don’t get food stamps.. To be able to eat every month I go to food pantry so I don’t think the people are greedy .. But look at it from everyone points of view.. Either buy meds or food and make sure you have a roof over you head .. Life is very hard but just have to have faith in God he will provide.. Thank you everyone for listening.. And hopefully the government will help everyone because yes we get a check every month but we are scrap and barely get by and I’m not blaming anyone… But I will 🙏 for everyone to be healthy…

          • I agree. Those on any type of social security struggle. What gets me is if you have a job why do you think your intittled to the $1000? If you get laid off you’ll get unemployment. I mean come on! I worked for many years and so has many others on social security. We are just as intittled to that $1000 as anyone else. With all these people acting stupid and running out to clear off every shelf in our grocery stores, not caring about those who don’t have that luxury. Not caring about those who only get paid a small amount once a month. Grow up people. Think about the elderly and the disabled. Karma is a b***** and your lack of respect is sickening.

      • Please Pray and lead your emotions by Faith! It’s going to be ok… just follow the advice.
        I’m wondering if us seniors are eligible for the $1,000.00 to sustain us? 🙏🏽

      • That was not rude.she answered the question. She was askef you women should stop being so fucking uptight. So shut thanks again Dee

      • People give their comments and nude little answers but they still don’t tell us if we going to get the thousand dollars also

      • My question is do disabled people qualify for the stimulus that people that can work will. I didn’t ask for brain cancer

      • I recieve social security because I take care of my adult disabled son. Will my son and I both be receiving a stimulus check?

        • Cash payments of up to $1,200 would go to individuals, with up to $2,400 for couples. The sum would increase by $500 for every child. The check totals would start to phase out above $75,000 in adjusted gross income based on 2018 tax returns. People with no federal tax liability would get only $600.

      • please disregard the pages of drivel written below about if a non government-employee was rude or not rude. What is rude is to monopolize this chat board with half-baked blather. Both side of the RUDE controversy, Knock it off.
        What happened with the stimulus payment is very likely to be reproduced soon. If you didn’t file a tax return last year, then file one that says you have no taxes to pay. That way the government knows all of your Soc. Sec. and SSI recepients are alive and where to send your full $1000 to. IRS and and Social Security are indistinguishable from each other for the purposes of getting you your moola.
        Just follow the new instructions, they aren’t going to re-invent the wheel. The method used in 2009 will in all likelihood simply be copied again.

      • Wow I’m with most people, we are not in a debate, it should not be going back and forth and turning into a hostile page. Who cares where you get your money, she was asking a question, I stopped scrolling no reply to the Initial question ask and this is the time that people should be getting along and worrying if they are going to be sick or whatever not going back-and-forth and saying who is rude who’s not if somebody knows the answer just answer if you don’t which we don’t right now then stop fighting.

      • Very rude responses – a couple of them. Some of you don’t realize that people on SSDI still have to and are allowed to work part time jobs up to a certain amount and they are impacted as well. So to worry about their limited income can be a real concern for some if that’s all they will have to live on for a while. A simple answer can suffice. This is a time to be kind to everyone, no matter what?

      • That was rude And unprofessional! If I was your boss I would write you up for talking like that. You need a class to go to be more polite I. Your profession!

      • Shes right..why would your benefits stop?nothing in any fake news media indicated it would..not even a whimper..We are all adults..sometimes we just need to stop and think and use what God has given us…A brain..

        • Republican shortchanged all the social security and Snap 63 millions recipients
          they do not care about senior citizens getting 50% lower than the poverty levels. These people are treated unfairly and they are the one most affected by covid-19 pandemics. Pelosi gave up fighting for these 63 millions starving senior citizens.

        • No one knows yet. NO final bill has been crafted for a vote in the House of Reps nor for the Senate approval and then on to the desk of the President for final approval !!!! For ANYONE on here to state they know for certain one way or the other is purely speculation on their part. Understand?? We will all find out the details/nuances of said bill if and when it is approved by all governing congressional parties. UNDERSTAND ??? Until then for ANYONE on this site to say they have the answer is making a guess, trying to tick people off or has wishful thinking delusions, psychic abilities the rest of us don’t possess or misguided biased interpretations.for a bill that has not been passed much less finalized for a vote. UNDERSTAND ? For anyone here to state they know one way or the other is simply wrong at this point !!!!

      • To consider:

        Often, folks may ask questions, make inquiries considering that there may have been news that they did not have the opportunity to have learned about. They may be, in other words, intelligently considering that others may know something that they do not. The person making the inquiry, may be someone who is often dick and unable to regularly view news updates.

        Also, one should consider that the president has expressed an interest in stopping social security payouts. This may also be a concern of the person who presented the question.

        I think that folks should always be open possibilities.

        – J. Woodlyn

        • She wasn’t an social security employee…. No wonder this world is falling apart because of people who have to have the last word… shut up about what 1 person asked, regardless of the question, it was asked. No question is a stupid question. Everyone has an opinion of what was said so keep it to yourself, be nice, mind your own business. If it doesn’t apply to you don’t say anything.
          NOW can we get back to the subject at hand and quit wasting time over some one asking a simple question

      • It was rude! Clearly it is a concern for many people who live on a small limited income. I was wondering the same thing myself, as It would effect the very substaince of my livelihood.

      • If there shutting down social security office what the social security administration offices that cut checks ?

      • Where can I go to discuss the amount of my monthly benefit, and whether I will be eligible for the bonus Government “checks” said to be going out to all citizens in U.S. who are in very precarious situations!?!

      • Will social security and ssi people get the stimulus check also or what may I ask please thank you.

      • It will be a sliding scale. So ,from what I just read it is income based. So they said Soc sec ssi etc recipients will be receiving large increases in food stamps if they receive them as well as monthly increases of 100 or more in payments per month. That’s the latest for now

      • I’m trying to see your answer on if disability recipients are qualified for the $1,000, but everyone like always are fighting…… anyway, I get disability will I be getting that bonus 2?

      • That was so rude that I went to my room and cried all night. I am 98 yo and live with my parents and need money so I can afford more soda crackers, potted meat, vienna sausages and geritol. If you are sorry for what you done by being so rude then prove it by sending me your check. Now I must go to watch re-runs of Lawrence Welk, I hear the tap dancer is going to do a number while they play Tea for Two and blow bubbles. (Geritol is Nature Spelled backwards).

      • WTF? All we want to know, is if us SSDI folks are going to recieve an extra government check for $1,000.00 as The pres. had mentioned??????

      • People are dying over the Coronavirus, and we are fighting over a simple question.

        We need to pray and ask God 🙏 to guide and protect us during these difficult times.

      • I’m trying to figure that one too I get SSI and SSDI my wife gets SSI we’re trying to figure out each going to get $1,000 or if it’s not going to happen with people on social security

      • That person probably wasn’t trying to be rude at all trying to be more upbeat but I could see how you would have taken it wrong.
        We all have concerns and you have a right to have your opinion.

      • I would like to know the same thing most are asking here….Will we low income disabled folks get a stimulus check or not!? I live on such a low income I could use the help. Please, someone answer this question!

      • So, now instead of sharing useful information we’re going to spend our time and energy discussing whether or not someone’s comment was rude? I have found no indications whatsoever that SS payments will be interrupted in any way and as far as I can tell, SS recipients will get a check of some kind as well. And why not? Many of us work just as hard as anyone else and we have bills and obligations to meet just like anyone else. Anyone of you who think SS is an entitlement, need to call your local SS rep and learn something about SS. 99.9% of the people who work in SS are fantastic people who will take the time to answer your questions accurately and honestly.

      • I bet this is dee curran the rude overweight girl that got the gastric bypass but is still overweight and lives in a 10×10 dump of a room with her mom and 2 dogs and both are perfectly able to work but are just lazy and mooch off the government and lie about having jobs to family, the mom says she works as a radio DJ and dee says she helps people adopt dogs. they are the scum of the earth and take advantage of the system

      • OMG….. The correct response should have been, ” Yes, of course you will receive your checks as usual,” This was not your family member you were responding to here. If you are having a hard time being nice to you ‘CUSTOMER’ then perhaps you should not be on the “Let us answer your questions and concerns ” Website, I hope the Supervisor’s are monitoring this “Comment” section and god I hope this was not a Supervisor.

      • You should also check spelling when you type. I believe you may have meant “of” instead of “if”.

        Your response makes it sound like you think the person asking should know better. If someone is asking a question, they obviously either don’t know or unsure about that particular scenario.

      • Helloooo. You people should get a life! We are in a crisis situation and you are obsessed with rudeness? No, there was no I’ll will in his response, but you all have a mob lynching mentality!!

      • That reply was condescending. You were attempting to insult her. I was hoping I could find answers to questions and not the usual social media BS.

        • Hi, Elise. We understand there have been reports about the possibility of additional government payments to individuals due to the economic effects of the Coronavirus. At this time, no law has been passed that calls for Social Security to issue any new payments. We hope this helps to answer your question.

      • I thought the same, hearing everything this closing down, people out of work! Didn’t know how serious it was going to be! Just an honest outlook on the situation.

      • Everyone relax your acting like shit dont matter but it does for some of us and regardless of ones answer freedom of speach quit taking ones anwer as a direct attack!! we as in the intire nation has far more problems to pay attention to and if you think for 1 second it wont effect you it appsalutly will its a matter of when. They as in medical science can have my whole check to find a cure or vaccine because i tested positive and would love a cure. So shut up and pay attention because like me i didnt worry about it much and look where that got me and if nothing i said interested you than try putting my shoes cuz dealth is far less painful im sure and this message was typed by a nurse cuz i have no control of my own hand

      • All I want to know is will SS recipients get the stimulus check too. I live on a paltry 700.00 monthly and pay all my own bills with no help. I could use the extra money for medicine and food because I have no insurance or food card. And I am ,71 years old. Right now I have less than 200.00 to get essentials, I never buy luxury items. I haven’t even had cable in over 10 years. We seniors need extra help too.

        • Hi, Sharon. We understand there have been reports about the possibility of additional government payments to individuals due to the economic effects of the Coronavirus. At this time, no law has been passed that calls for Social Security to issue any new payments. We hope this helps to answer your question.

        • Hi, Nancy. We understand there have been reports about the possibility of additional government payments to individuals due to the economic effects of the Coronavirus. At this time, no law has been passed that calls for Social Security to issue any new payments. We hope this helps to answer your question.

      • I found that idiotic, why would SSI stop? Now the question most seniors with paltrySSI file no tax returns and get zero. 150,000 a year get two checks and 500 per child Fair, every American? Who ever came up with this screwed up system?

      • She didn’t answer with a question for those out there that care to feign intellect or an understanding of English use. She answered, then asked a question herself. And there was nothing rude about requesting information regarding the subject of the question. Spend more time living and less time fruitlessly flapping your phalanges people. No one cares about your need to provide us with your opinions. An opinion does no require fact nor truth. Infallibly, not open to opinion it just is, not rude. 🙄

      • Omg I’m trying to read important information an all I’m reading is almost everyone having a debate about a question or answer that may or may not be rude. My question is why do so many of you care? Your very negative. Move on an talk about something with substance an hope.

      • For the people that didn’t go to school or that didn’t pay attention in school, of course you wouldn’t know that reply was a rude remark. Reading majority of the posts. I can tell most of us still have a brain attached to our heads and pay attention in CLASS.

      • This ridiculous people. You are all grown. If there has to be that much of a debate on whether something is or isn’t rude chances are it wasn’t that bad. I didn’t get on this sight for this childish bullshit. I can tell you this. My mother might give a reply like that like ” Of course honey why wouldn’t you” if you can add honey to a statement and it doesn’t sound sarcastic it’s probably not that rude. Or worth that many full grown adults acting like babies “grow a pair America” I’m sorry that statement was definitely NOT rude. Now can people see the difference and stop crying long enough for me to find out any information other than what is our isn’t rude. What a waste of reading material I read for 5 min. And didn’t find out anything. The sad part is nobody else even figured out whether what she said was or wasn’t rude.

      • People go to college and there is an article telling all about the coronavirus stimulus checks. I couldn’t forward the article here, but I wanted to help you all by sharing where to go for the questions you have about this issue, I hope it helps. Have a nice day.😊

        • I meant to say go 2 (The College – for the article about Coronavirus Stimulus Checks, maybe it will help Answer Questions about your issues.

      • I still don’t see the answer. Will we, or won’t we get our monthly SS checks. Dee is not an employee of the ss adminstration.

        • We will still receive our regular checks if the bill is passed all ppl will receive a stimulus check.. also I cannot believe how much belittling and disrespect goes on here this is supposed to be a sight where we can get answers to our questions and concerns that we may have regarding our checks ECT. .. seriously we r all in the same boat nobody is better then the other… Can’t believe how supportive u all are … It sad for real… But to find more info on the stimulus check u can text the 509-444-2000 (channel 2 news) and text the word money..

      • No the hell it wont rude its called being a smartass but i forgot these are young and old democratic bs snowflaes that dont have a sense of humor and believes we all should hold hands and live in a fantasy world damn retarded ppl now if i offend anyone then kiss my ass I done my job


      • Does anyone understand this “rude” reply was not from a SSI official just one of us get over it, move on and let the employee of SSI answer without the nonsense!

      • That reply was not rude it was a direct answer to a direct question. How else were they to reply???? For real?

      • Why wouldn’t you? Because Trump wants to cut tens of billions of dollars from SSD benefits. That’s why. It won’t happen until his re-election but it will happen.

      • Most likely brought up with no manners it was very rude I hate to see that person in about 10 years! Learn how to speak to people not talk down to them just one day somebody’s going to talk down to you and you’re not going to like it

      • People, enough already about the comment, rude or not..Do you see what you people are doing..You are fighting over something very small at this time with what is going on.Let it go and concentrate on staying safe, staying connected and trying to do something to help someone in some way. This country needs more love not more fighting…

      • between andy and dee you two ought go steady =hook up or just fuck —-you both are incompetent to even answer questions ===rude i do not care about rude i am rude all the the time ===but you two are immature dick heads now that is rude i yes would have been just fine
        do not have grandarents ==that is what i get from this ===answer

      • Social security has it on their main screen that you have to check with your local post office. I just read that on there a second ago before reading these.

          • Will people on Social Security be getting $1,000 check within two weeks of Coronavirus

          • I just read on the Business Insider website that you will only receive it if you filed taxes last year. I have been on SSDI since 2006 and have never received one, but I don’t file taxes either. Stay Well y’all!~Brightest of Blessings.

        • It doesn’t help me as I’ve been trying to get direct deposit for 5 months and noone can get my payment on a direct express card !

          • That’s crazy I got mines on my direct express card as soon as I was approved

        • I still through all these questions have not seen one answer for those on SSI/SSA/or SSDI about if they will get a stimulus check or not & if so will thos hurt their HUD or their Food Stamps? Can some one fron the government answer these questions?

        • Will the Stimulus payment be directly deposited into ur bank account /Direct Express cards or be sent out as a check and received in the mail?

      • Hi –
        That’s the info i am looking for too. I believe in 2008 SSDI recipients did NOT receive anything because it was based on earned income. But these are different circumstances and im hoping they recognize disabled will be suffering too, with other family members out of work, costs of home delivery, etc. Im a single mom and still have to feed the kids and the oldest just got his hours cut way back. Lets cross our fingers!

        • Exactly. People cant compare this to 2008. This is an illness that can affect the disabled far more seriously. It would make no sense to leave the most vulnerable people out.

      • Hi Ann.

        Is there any channel we can report abuse and negligence by SSA workers?And i don’t mean the local SSA office phone number.Because it is impossible to get to a supervisor or manger when you call that number.I mean the contacts of someone with authority over these local offices. My mom’s application for Medicare and Spousal Benefits will be denied in a couple of days because the workers at SSA office lost her paperwork .We went to the office twice last month and they lost her documents twice. Now in these dire times of need she will have neither Medicare nor a Social Security check. She is sad and worried.

        • You need to call your local congressman’s office. Whichever one represents you in Washington and every office which should be a local office, it was in my case, has someone that looks directly into your claim for you. That way worked best for me. Took me almost 3 years to get approved for disability. Hope you have better luck than I did. God bless you.

          • Thank you for the suggestion Matt. I will call my representative’s office and see if they can help. Stay safe. God Bless you too.

          • Ann

            Thank you for your reply.That e-mail link doesn’t work for me. I keep trying and I get the message below. Is there any other alternative? My moms deadline is on March 20, I appreciate your help.Stay safe you and your family.

            We’re sorry…
            We cannot process your request at this time. Please try again later.

        • It took my husband 8 years to get approved. Yes, he will get back pay, still waiting. He first filed in Jan of 2012 and got his first check Jan of 2020. He lost his CDL due to going on insulin had both knees replaced in 2015, and has COPD. We finally had to get an attorney.

        • You’re rude and why it has to be a Political Party thing most of you Republicans see he’s unfairness as well so I feel you’re an ALL AMERICAN AIRHEAD

          • Trump is doing EVERYTHING he can to help this country how ca you hate him. totally off base! Evil Pelosi didnt care about helping america people her mind was on slipping baby murdering money into the stimulus bill. what an evil female she truly is. Trump is about saving lives not killing people THANK GOD!

          • Yes…American taxpayers money. Som if you have never worked, why should you get the money? There is a fine line here.

          • TDS does not qualify for extra support and you can run your hateful mouths on every other media. Your rudeness will only increase the support of those of us who appreciate the President who looks out for the citizens of this country whether they support him or not.

          • Your language is disgusting and completely innapropriate. It does, however, explain a lot about your intelligence and mental acuity.

        • I am appalled at how many in this thread are unnecessarily being unkind. This is a time we should all be kind and help each other out no matter what religion, race, or for gosh sakes who we voted for. We are ALL human beings.
          Respect and kindly help where you can.

          • OMG! Thank you! I was reading all this crap on here and thinking the same thing!

          • Thank you.. People are here for answers not hate…Some of these comments are ridiculous….

          • So true . Life is to short. For unnecessary petty arguments. Some people intentions may not be warranted as rude. Bit how someone may perceive it.
            Move on. We learn. Forgive. Grow.
            My Lord. People are getting sick, dying, trying to fund where there next meal is coming from. So on . And use are talking about something so trivial.
            God bless us all.

          • I agree. To those concerned about getting your check if you do not file taxes,..please do not worry. You will. SSI, SSDI, etc will get the stimulus check. Thank you


          • Remember people. This money for the coronavirus is not free. It will have to be paid back. Not from us, but from our children and gramdchildren. I am a Democrat and I thank Mitt Romney( who suggested the stimulus), Nancy Pelosi, Steve Mnuchin and yes, Donald Trump. I just hope that they think of us on Social Security also. But if not I am glad my children and grandchildren will be getting the help. But this is not free money. It has a place in peoples pockets only temporarily.

          • Trump is campaigning?…You say that like it’s a bad thing… God Chose Trump to defeat the evil Demon possesed liberals. We need to thank God for this.

          • you are crazy …Trump didn’t cause this virus…. people like you should have to take a test to vote.

          • Wow!!! How is this Trumps fault? Put fault where it belongs!!! On China!!! That is where it started and CPC permit people to travel by which it has spread!!!

          • How exactly did POTUS Trump do this??? The WUHAN VIRUS AKA C-Virus CAME FROM CHINA DUMBASS! POTUS Trump is the BEST ever and get your tissues out for one more term 🙂 DumboRATS are so out of touch and just plain crazy…. I guess someone has to keep the shrinks in business right? Thank you POTUS Trump for ALWAYS putting USA #1! #KAG #MakingAGA 🙂

        • Paul, the president is not giving away money, the government is. And they are not giving it away because when this is all over WE will pay it back one way or another. If you are on any type of SS benefits, you would know how much the President has taken away from those of us who have worked our whole life building this Great Country of OURS only to be thrown crumbs in our Golden years.

    • I usually receive my daughters checks on the 3rd Monday, but ours did not come. Today still nothing? I am hoping it comes by tomorrow because since my husband passed away this is a main source of our income. Does anyone know of any delays?

      • Ms Honey,
        Mail is behind in some areas. That may be the reason. I hope it comes, iIm on SSID . Will we receive any extra money? I know my water bill has had an increase and so was my electric.

    • Dear SSA ,

      It seems the Federal government is bailing out Stock Market, Businesses, workers, and state employees across the board with paid leave, 3 months FMLA, and cash benefits!


      As it is we live frugally , on fixed income and fixed budget ! I did not have enough funds from check for hygiene, health, sanitizing and disinfectant products, let alone toilet paper or Food!

      Please Mr.Trump Do not forget us Us and allow a raise on out monthly benefits!

      Signed – ” the forgotten “

      • I totally agree, I dont get much a month from ssdi and I barely covers rent,electric phone,supplies and food,and now with covid-19 it’s even worse to get by.

      • Look low income like myself receiving disability & SSI because I can no longer work, yet did close to 40 years, I do NOT see them giving us one cent of this “stimulus”. I didn’t get any of the last “stimulus” either. We are the forgotten, period. He is bailing out the airlines of all things! And people working, out of work and with kids. Don’t expect one cent for us, trust me, he doesn’t care one bit about us. I live on less than $800 a month, not on welfare, nor section 8, nor kids. I pay ALL of my bills & have little left over, and VERY little left right now w/all the extra things I had to purchase to survive. We are the forgotten and will continue to be the forgotten when it comes to the “stimulus package”. So don’t expect it. Sorry but only the select few will be getting it 🙁

        • I hope he continues to forget us when it comes to budget cuts but we should be so lucky

          However, those of us on SSI are not unaffected by the virus since some of us are in greater danger or high risk because of our illnesses

          If I am forced to take a bus rather then uber because I can’t afford uber and I am in a high risk group, then I am in greater danger of catching the virus and dying from it, and just as likely to spread it around
          as anyone else.

          Besides we are the poorest group of people around If they want to depend on a group to spend that cash we are sure to be that group

          And we did get the stimlus in 2009, At least I did It wasn’t much though I think it was around 250.00. Still, we were included

          What I worry about is would we all have to fill out a tax form? If so then we are going to have to leave our houses to go get the paperwork etc I hope they make it easy to do it all online

          I am not very practiced in filling out tax forms either

          • Fair Question, senior citizen and disabled people who are low income rely 100% on their checks , food, rent, medicine, all living expenses. We are all scared what will happen if we can’t pay for the basics, we are scared we will get evicted and be homeless and without needed medicine.

          • I don’t know how you got it most of us didn’t and most of us will not. They don’t care about the very poor and never will

          • I understand what you mean but that’s a little bit rude and judgmental to say my daughter is on SSI and is completely blind from solar retinopathy she was born with that some know she cannot work everyone is not able to work that receives SSI

          • Hi James, I’m on SSDI for a reason. It’s debilitating to do most things let alone work. I worked all my life until the last year and when I did, it was a struggle to work. Don’t say we don’t TRY HARD ENOUGH. Remember, there is a reason we are on it!

          • Our kids in Indiana are out till May 1st. It was announced today. Stay safe and have a great night.

        • If it is based of of the 2008 stimulus then everyone except SSI will receive the stimulus package. For those of you who have not filed a tax return yet do so immediately even if it shows no income this was a requirement in 2008.

      • If it wasn’t for people who work ssi would not exist. So the stimulus package to keep the economy floating is beneficial to you even if you aren’t handed an additional sum. The problem here is that people always have their hands out wanting more – instead of arguing here as if it were Facebook – Take this time to educate yourself concerning the economy. This is the reason finances are so screwed up. And as far as paying taxes, ssi and SSDI do not pay taxes unless they are working. This is a useless feed with too much drama. It is causing more stress than listening to the Democrats circular reasoning.

        • I worked 50+ hours a week for 20 years, before becoming disabled. I paid into social security just like those that work today. I still pay car, home and purchase taxes. Why are you even on this site?

          • Many people on SSI have never worked a day in their life. They have never paid employee taxes.

          • Well I think people on disability Social Security should get it can I pay my house payment in my water and my electric we have nothing and that is bull they make it harder on people on Social Security Disability to make it and you get $15 a month food stamps that is so wrong you let these people out here having kids right and left and they get five six $700 a month I’m raising my granddaughter and they gave me $15 a month for her that you tell me what’s right what’s wrong I didn’t only got three mouths to feed now I’m not too there’s three of us down and I can barely make it sometimes I have to boy toilet paper and is bull I can put shampoo and soap I can’t afford this liquid Jana for laundry detergent so how they expect us to make it we’re just as good as he people with money but you’re not looking at that they taking care of these women out of here and men out here doing whatever they want to do taking her food stamps and selling them for drugs whatever and they won’t help the elderly people in the people on disability Social Security and you tell me where that’s right it’s wrong

        • not totally true on the taxes. if one spouse is working and one on SSDI they do and will tax some of the SSDI. 50% of mine was taxed this year.

      • I’m not even on SSI, I exist on child support caring for a chronically ill child, awaiting her SSI application approval. I am positive I am not an “every American” who will receive a stimulus check. We do not even “scrape by” every month. lol. Payment plans on utilities, utility assistance, my daughter qualifies for MDCP but that doesn’t help with anything but respite care, really. So, yeah, I totally understand feeling a little forgotten when they say they will go by 2018 tax filings for the checks….

    • I had the same question, I have not seen anything saying we would or we would not. So I was unsure, unless something changes. I wont be able to maintain my home with my kids and wife. I work as much as I can but the restaurant is stopped right now and seziures come from outa noplace so I really need to know.

      • It’s a coronavirus stimulus. Who’s most susceptible to dying from CV? Ppl over 65. It would be a shame that ppl drawing SS are exempt from stimulus money. Those most vulnerable don’t get any financial help. Hoping we do 🙂

        • That’s a great way to look at it. Their are some that can work and they don’t won’t to work draws disability. Their are some that want’s to work and misses work that can’t work. Their barely get by on what they draw. So I agree with you I also think the ones on Disability/SSI shouldn’t be forgotten.

      • You are getting SSDI now right? You are NOT paying taxes, anymore correct (like me)? Be thankful you have money coming in every month unllike some others. God, how greedy people get? Shame on you.

        • its people like you make the disable suffer your turn it take sometimes years to get help on top of that serious health problems that you can not work that’s how some become homeless waiting for approval for funds and still not enough to survive shut the f up until your a can no longer work cause of illness remember what I said your better off you just looking for a hand out your not disabled !

    • The world is collapsing around us and you guys are arguing about whether a response is rude or not? Holy Christ.

    • Can everyone please just answer our concerns without fighting?? Are we entitled to receive an additional 1,000.00 beside our “normal” benefit amounts and if so, when?

    • I was going to ask questions here but it seems that people are to busy being stupid So I’m outta here stage left
      I don’t need this kind of crap in my life

    • Read below the level of concern of so many SS recipients, as it amounts to zero. Zero in normal times, but, now, with so many other REAL problems those concerns are WAY lower than lower.

    • Monthly disability and retirement checks should go out on or near same date however, those that are self employed who make very little or who receive just snap benefits may only get an increase in snap benefits and no check. The bill at one point proposes, only working families get the check. I am a dog groomer I work from home , I make under twenty thousand and have never received Any stimulus check, I file and do everything right. I do see though, thru the bill , if your already getting a disability check , for not working, you may Not get the corona stimulus check because your already receiving money from the government.

    • I know we’ll be getting our monthly checks. I get mine on the 1st of the month. But what I’m not sure of is if I qualify for the stimulus payment because I get SSI.

      • Mich McConnell just said on national TV that retirees and “dissabled” Americans WILL be apart of the stimulus checks go8ng out. The majority leader of the Senate said that the answer is YES

        • I think he means people on SSD not people on SSI. when they did this the last time people on SSI were not eligible

          • I’ve been on SSDI since 2004, I’ve never received a stimulus check.
            I’m hoping that this time around, folks who don’t receive enough to file – don’t have dependent children, will receive the same assistance.
            Here’s to hoping.

        • Let’s hope so. Everything is costing more. It’s time to take care of Americans we give aid to the whole world.

    • Will SSD receive the additional payment President Trump is approving? I prepared for virus. Which cost money I would not usually have to purchase. I have .98 cent until April 3 SSD payment.


    • The president did not say you would not get your check in April you will get your check what makes you say you won’t as far as a stimulus check I think that’s what people who are laid off who are or who owned businesses I do not think it’s for people on Social Security Disability or SSI

      • I agree. While they don’t get much each month, they will 100% still have an income. I think if a stimulus is given, it should be to those who are out of work, and don’t get paid. I am not clear or what everyone is saying they spent so much extra money on. If you stay home and only go out when needed you are safe. My husband works outside for a phone company and we does not have the luxury of staying inside or you guys wouldn’t have your internet to complain. He is still employed so we don’t need this check either. I think only those who are truly out of work should qualify. Get mad if you want guys, but come on. Your income is guaranteed, some people’s are not. Feel sorry for those who were told to go home and we will see you in a month and they have 0 income. At least you guys will still get your money on the 1st. Thank you and I am sorry if I upset anyone, but seriously there are hundreds of comments saying will I get extra??? It makes me sad. You should be praying for those who will have NOTHING.

        • My check is 553 dollars a month. We are on fixed incomes. We can’t afford supplies and some of us have spouses who are out of work. Therefore, your comment is retarded. I hope YOU don’t get it so you can see HOW WE LIVE 24/7. HOW ABOUT THAT? If anyone deserves it, IT’S US. They need people to SPEND this money. People on SSI probably will get this money. The bill said EVERY AMERICAN ADULT.

        • I am on disability in my 30s. $800 is not enough to live off of. I get SSDI and have to work part time . I came searching for an answer and all it is is boomers arguing about if a comment it rude. It is rude arguing about it and not answering . If I worked part time in 2018 will I get the check still? If not, I might as well kill myself.

    • Why would you not get your Social Security or SSI in April the federal government shutdown last year and you still got it this year the government open so why would you not receive it what makes you ask that question

    • I read that people on social security will receive Stimulus check and It will be sent like your regular Social Security check or deposit. The only people not getting a check are people who are millionaires. Stay safe everyone. God bless and protect.

      • I just saw a reporter ask Trump if anyone was excluded from a stimulus check and he said millionaires ..
        Yes SSI and SS recipients will get a check .Amount is not totally decided on .Could be $750 , could be $1000

      • I agree. Those on any type of social security struggle. What gets me is if you have a job why do you think your intittled to the $1000? If you get laid off you’ll get unemployment. I mean come on! I worked for many years and so has many others on social security. We are just as intittled to that $1000 as anyone else. With all these people acting stupid and running out to clear off every shelf in our grocery stores, not caring about those who don’t have that luxury. Not caring about those who only get paid a small amount once a month. Grow up people. Think about the elderly and the disabled. Karma is a b***** and your lack of respect is sickening.i hope your right. Those on any type of social security deserve it just as much as anyone else. I worked for many years, paid my taxes just like anyone else, and I get screwed on social security disability. I barely service each month. We all deserve a break to. Those who get laid off will get unemployment, so what’s the difference between that and social security it’s still an income.

    • Since there is a $2000 limit in assets for single people who receive SSI will this $1000 check make you Ineligible or would it not count as assets for a certain period of time? Would you need to report it to social security?

    • Oh for Gods sake the lady asked a simple question it was answered with another question it was not rude but it wasn’t very nice it turns into a goddamn Fiasco about who was rude it was but it wasn’t Let It Go people Christ Almighty and yes ma’am the checks will we delivered or how are you get them I’m not sure – direct deposit they will be delivered on time nothing nothing late that I’m aware of it this point have a great day

    • Without facial expression you really don’t know how the reply should be interpreted If it was said in person with a smile it would probably be interpreted as a positive and reassuring response must likely. I personally think that she just wanted to help by answering the question.

    • If I had to put money on it right now, I would say no.

      When I was younger, the focus was ALWAYS on “helping seniors and people on fixed incomes”. Now that I’m on disability, the focus seems to be on “workers”.

      I’ve noticed NOTHING being said about those on disability specifically. Thus the reasoning for my answer.

      They’re already talking about 2 and 3 checks being sent out later. Perhaps those will include us, but I wouldn’t spend any of the money just yet.

      Hopefully I’m wrong.

      • Our benefits are, or at least should, be an automatic occurence. Why would the be affected? The trust fund that our monies come from are not endangered. It is the health if the country that is questioned. While we have an idiot residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave he will not all the US to be totally broken down … I think. No he wouldn’t … I hope. No, were good … ???Let’s just pray 🙏🙏🙏🙏

    • Good morning..can someone please tell me if I receive SSI are we apart of the 2020 stimulus payment will we receive extra benefits as well?

    • If you don’t have one , make a ‘MY Social Security’ account for yourself on the web site. They are free & very simple, step by step how to do it. You can ask any SS related questions you want and get the correct answers. You will also be able to look at all your SS money earnings and any new increases that may be coming your way. And yes, you got a rude reply but keep in mind this is a very stressful time that we are all dealing with and leave it at that. Stay well…

    • I recieve social security because I take care of my adult disabled son. Will my son and I both be receiving a stimulus check?

    • According to the social security website your SSI, SSDI will still be deposited as normal and you will still get your paper checks as normal, unless the postal service gets shut down and or unless the government says otherwise. Continue to check with the social security website daily for updates. There is still no confirmed decision on exactly who will get the stimulus checks, we won’t know any of that until Congress and the president agree and sign something. So for now you’ll have to be patient, watch the news and save every penny you can. I hope this helps.

      • I think since this is a national health emergency that affects everyone and since most disabled are the most vulnerable its common sense to believe people who are disabled would be included. This is not 2008.

    • OMG,, seriously arguing about responses! We are all scared. But this is a worry for those of us depending on those checks. If we don’t receive checks, people are going to go without food & not be able to pay our bills. We all need to stick together & be kind to one another.

    • You fucking people need to learn to stay on subject. If you’re going to cry over some person on the internet being “rude” you need to grow up
      Nobody cares how you feel. Pussies. A bunch of liberal whine bags.

    • So my question is will we receive the extra help that they’re saying could be $1000 since we are on Social Security or Social Security disability? We are the ones that are really struggling to because we’ve had to buy extra things and put things on credit cards to make ends meet you’re in this coronavirus

    • Does anyone believe what come out of poliiticans mouth.they say anything to smoth the plan and just do what ever.if the rich get a check everyone is entitled to there share

      • I am 73 yrs old, on SSI, with a heart condition and type2 diabetes. My only income source is SSI, I’ve bought enough food to last out March, but THAT’S IT. So because of this damn virus, why shouldn’t I, along with millions of other senior citizens just like myself, be qualified to receive the $1,000 (or whatever) stimulus money through Direct Deposit?? We have no more $$ to pay for protective equipment such as the N95 mask, or for Uber to take us grocery shopping (I no longer drive), or to buy hand sanitizers & toilet tissue IF it was available. ISN’T OUR SELF- ISOLATING ENOUGH FOR THOSE OVERPAID WASHINGTON POLITICIANS?? Who is looking out for OUR interests NOW?!?

    • Our benefits are, or at least should, be an automatic occurence. Why would the be affected? The trust fund that our monies come from are not endangered. It is the health if the country that is questioned. While we have an idiot residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave he will not all the US to be totally broken down … I think. No he wouldn’t … I hope. No, were good … ???Let’s just pray 🙏🙏🙏🙏

    • The way it appears they’ll do this is everyone on ss retirement and disability will get the stimulus payment IF you filed taxes last year but don’t get over set amounts from additional income from pensions and so forth. Most don’t get extra income so don’t file, so no stimulus. We’ll not have our regular payment interrupted. As an example … my parents get ssr as well as pensions so file taxes and get over $100,000 yearly so probably won’t get it, and I get $845 monthly so have no reason to ever file so won’t get it.

    • Really.. we are adults or I thought so… all the sudden I felt I was on Facebook or reading one of my grand kids post.
      the point is not if this person was rude or not the point is does she get her SS check…

    • Queen about the stimulus package they recently announced about the Americans is that including the disable unemployed recieving $1000 also or what

    • I’m sure people on ssi will get one figure it out 1000 dollars time 210 million adults there 330 million people in the USA 210 are adults

    • As of now it seems like the 1k is for workers that lost there jobs due to the virus lock down. So I would think people who’s income isn’t affected would not receive this money.

    • I just read it wont be affected in anyway and yes people on disabilty will also get the $1000 check Romney is wanting people to giet $3000 and $1500 for a child but yes its for everyone except people with high income

    • Someone needs to stand up for the Social Security recipients we need to get stimulus to we have a choice now to buy extra cleaning products or to buy food to live so leaving us out would be totally wrong

    • Fair question, we have no idea what our government will or will not do. Since our government funds are low and even though this is a crisis everything can come to a halt.

    • will us social security recipients be getting a 1000.00 stimulus check in 2020 due to the conravirus or is it for just the working people i was wondering

    • As a couple who though stokes and heart failures in our 40s the amounts of our combined checkes hardly get us through month to month. Will medical, medications rent, utilities and food most months we do without paying something. Now no one wants to take us to appointments or to get our groceries or meds. Food and supply prices are going up as they will continue to increase. I hope that there will be a stimulus package for those on SS, SSI or on any government assistance.

    • Debbie that is not a dumb question. It went through my mind that since the SSA offices arent staffed, the who the hell is there to send out checks and make direct deposits. Of course mostly everything is computerized by someone actually has to print the checks and stuff them in envelopes. But it will be ok. Maybe we will get lucky and get our checks a bit early. We surely can use it.

    • Does anyone know if You get SSI do we get the $1000 stimulant check? And if so how do you know if you qualify for it?

    • That response wasn’t rude. You asked if you’re going to receive your regular monthly check. And the person responding said why wouldn’t you receive it, of course you’re going to receive it. That’s an answer to your question. Why would you not receive it? What makes you think you wouldn’t receive it? That’s not rude to ask. Of course you’re going to receive your check we all are
