Checks from the government

Share this page

As the Coronavirus takes a growing toll on people’s pocketbooks, there are reports that the government will soon be sending money by check or direct deposit to each of us. The details are still being worked out, but there are a few really important things to know, no matter what this looks like.

1. The government will not ask you to pay anything up front to get this money. No fees. No charges. No nothing.

2. The government will not call to ask for your Social Security number, bank account, or credit card number. Anyone who does is a scammer.

3. These reports of checks aren’t yet a reality. Anyone who tells you they can get you the money now is a scammer.

Look, normally we’d wait to know what the payment plan looks like before we put out a message like this. But these aren’t normal times. And we predict that the scammers are gearing up to take advantage of this.

So, remember: no matter what this payment winds up being, only scammers will ask you to pay to get it. If you spot one of these scams, please tell the Federal Trade Commission: www.ftc.gov/complaint. We’re doing our best to stop these scammers in their tracks, and your report will help.

It's so nice to see a message from the government that reads like it was written by an engaged human being. Keep up the good work.

I agree! The personal touch is very refreshing.
Thanks for the info, the communications, and the 'be aware' heads up! And best of luck to you and yours in these abnormal times.

Will people on disability get government checks?

As of today, there are no confirmed details about any stimulus money. Watch for updates from trusted news sources to find the latest

Thank you. I will keep looking for updates. We are just all so very worried. Most of us have children to care for. Even if we don’t, I’m sure it is very hard for people. A lot of people are scared and confused I’m sure. Anyways. I do hope Trump considers low income people and people who are disabled. Ty

AM RECIEVING SOCIAL SECURITY NOW FOR THE LAST 3 YEARS WILL I GET FINANCIAL HELP FROM THE GOVERMENT

sadly no those of us on ssi will not receive stimulus money

Don’t know where you receive your information but it’s my understanding that all Americans get it.

I am on SSI, and I saw the stimulus package was approved, but I did not file taxes because of low income. I am curious if I will get a stimulus check? I am curious if you have any merit.

The bill specifically says anyone who has filed a
“Form SSA-1099, Social Security Benefit Statement, or Form RRB-1099, Social Security Equivalent Benefit Statement.” qualifies. That being said, it hasn’t passed the House or been thru the compromise committee to be sent on to the White House. Things can change until that happens.

Yes you will recieve a check.

Yes, we will.

I pray to God those receiving SSI in any fashion are on the list! I am disabled with wife and 2 1/2 year old daughter. My wife is in school. If we do not receive a relief check from Government we are gonna have BAD issues ahead. Please do not put people in fear more than they already are without actually knowing for a fact first.
