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.

The homeless are the people that need the money the most. Or people who have been out of work for a very long time. This stimulus check should be for everybody who needs it, just not the people who are laid off temporarily.

People that are on Social Security Disability do we get a stimulus check as well

I have been on disability for 2 year i would to know if I will get a stimulus check.

Do we have to file a tax return even if we haven’t in a while

I this is what think if they go by taxes foled and you are a dependent on another person taxes you may not get one directly but the person who has you as a dependent possibly could get it so in long way you would get it indirectly, (does that make since)

Im in the same boat. Sir my daughter claims me now if your grandson filed taxes in 2018 and claimed you dont quote me ? But i think he will get 1200$ and dependants? Get a extra 500$ for each dependant but i dont know ? If this is just for dependant children or parents? Grandparents ect...

Are you going to help people on disability

I have read that the government will be using 2018 income tax return information. So if you don't file tax returns, you are not eligible as a "tax payer" and will not receive a check. That is of course subject to change.

I'm on disability I dont file tax return. Will they deposit my stimulus check in my SSDI direct deposit account?
