Supplemental Security Income Recipients, Act Now – Go to – A Message from Social Security Commissioner Andrew Saul

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients who don’t file tax returns will start receiving their automatic Economic Impact Payments directly from the Treasury Department in early May. People receiving SSI benefits who did not file 2018 or 2019 taxes, and have qualifying children under age 17, however, should not wait for their automatic $1,200 individual payment. They should immediately go to the IRS’s webpage and visit the Non-Filers: Enter Your Information section to provide their information. SSI recipients who have dependent children and did not file 2018 or 2019 taxes need to act by Tuesday, May 5, in order to receive additional payments for their eligible children quickly. 

By taking this proactive step to enter information on the IRS website about them and their qualifying children, they will also receive the $500 per dependent child payment in addition to their $1,200 individual payment. If people in this group do not provide their information to the IRS soon, their payment at this time will be $1,200 only. They would then be required to file a tax year 2020 tax return to obtain the additional $500 per eligible child.

I urge SSI recipients with qualifying children and who do not normally file taxes to take action now. Immediately go to so that you will receive the full amount of the Economic Impact Payments you and your family are eligible for.

Lastly, a word of caution. Be aware of scams related to the Economic Impact Payments. There is no fee required to receive these payments. Don’t be fooled.

  1. Tại sao tôi lại không thể đăng nhập nhận thư nhập An ninh xã hội của tôi. Xin hãy cho tôi biết lý do

  2. Why hasn’t SSI increased just a little to aid low income retirees, living on only their SSA retirement benefits monthly?

  3. Why should I pay tax on my SSI when I was paying tax towards it when I was in the work force? Should that law be changed?
    Florida doesn’t tax SS or your pension to my understanding.
    Also, as a widower I need the whole amount of my late wife’s SS to upkeep my housing and transportation costs, that would be more fair. Only if I made a $100,000 or more, should I be taxed, this law should be change for people my age and don’t earn the six figure income, thank you.

  4. Can you get SSI, while on disability. I received one payment of SSI when I first got Disability . No other payments since except my monthly disability benefits.

  5. You should fix the bugs on the website so I can log in no password is working and they’ve sent several to me they don’t work either : I need to get on my social security account to sigh up for sis because apparently they didn’t like my app I sent in cause I haven’t heard a word from y’all and that’s been months ago: and why can’t I just call and get a password what you have to wait 10 days. That’s crazy, I’ve been waiting over 2 years and I’m broke
