The IRS takes new steps to ensure people with children receive $500 Economic Impact Payments

August 17, 2020 • By

The IRS has extended its deadline to September 30, 2020 to provide information to the IRS using its IRS’ Non-Filer Tool if you:

 

 

  • Receive Social Security retirement, survivors, or disability benefits, or SSI payments.
  • Did not file a 2019 or 2018 tax return.
  • Have a qualifying child under age 17.
  • You did not already enter information in the IRS’ Non-Filer Tool for you and at least one child.

If you already entered information in the IRS’ Non-Filer Tool before and even after the IRS’ previously announced deadlines (April 22 if you receive Social Security; May 5 if you receive SSI), you do not need to do anything. The IRS will automatically make a payment in October based on the information you provided them.

Please read the IRS’ August 14 press release for more details.

    I am from the Philippines and my son receives his SSI benefit and I am his representative payee. Does he qualify for this $500 too?

    We have 2 sons who are 18 but still in high school. Do they qualify for the stimulus check? We filed for them but they have never received it when the first stimulus checks were distributed. Thank you.

    Do I have to have a social security account to receive my economic impact payment?
    I entered my information in IRS Non-Filer Tool.
    But today is September 30 and I haven’t received my payment.
    Do I have to create a social security account to receive it?
