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: 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 Disabled Veterans get a stimulus check also?

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

People on SSI will get a stimulus package check, but how much, I'm not sure. It was on smartnews. I think it depends on how much money u get every month. My question is do u have to apply for it or does it go into your automatic deposit bank account?

I would also like to know.on checks for ssi if they will come ?

I read in the news that you do not have to apply. You are automatically granted it. They are sending it the same way you receive your SSI. So if you have your bank information connected to your disability then that’s how the stimulus check is coming.
