Deadline Wednesday to Claim a $500 Stimulus Benefit for Kids!
If you receive Social Security, disability or veterans benefits and have a child age 16 or under, then act fast! Because, you have until Wednesday morning to tell the Internal Revenue Service about any children eligible for $500 stimulus payments.

Supplemental Security Income Recipients Will Receive Automatic COVID-19 Economic Impact Payments
SSI recipients with no qualifying children do not need to take any action in order to receive their $1,200 economic impact payment. The payments will be automatic.
However, SSI recipients who have qualifying children under age 17, should not wait for their automatic $1,200 individual payment. They should now go to the IRS’s webpage and visit the Non-Filers: Enter Your Payment Info section to provide their information. By taking proactive steps 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 SSI beneficiaries in this group do not provide their information to the IRS soon, they will have to wait until later to receive their $500 per qualifying child.
