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.

Since everyone is afffected by the coronavirus.Will every U.S citizen receive a stimulus check, rather if they are employed, disabled, homeless,filed taxes or did not file taxes??? All American are affected by this virus not just the one who filed taxes.

If we’re behind on filing taxes for 3 years will we still get a stimulus check? Thank you

I draw low disability live alone and struggle. Will i get the 1000 ? I need it badly

TOTALLY AGREE! WE'RE ALL GOING THROUGH THIS TOO! They gotta help EVERY AMERICAN, NOT JUST THE TAX PAYERS. SMH.

I believe it stated whoever filed 2018 tax return would be eligible for the stimulus package. But please dont take my word do your home work read listen and read again. I hope everyone is ok in this time of need. Again what i said is only what i have read. So again read and involve yourself in finding the answer. I hope we all get help and soon. I also agree on all our vets being helped. We are here because of them and for that i thank each and everyone of our vets. Stay safe and be safe. But again read and watch all aspects of this for yourself.

Will everyone get a stimulus check even
If no taxes were filed for 2018 how will they disperse the checks if you didn't make enough
To file..will census be used?

Agreed. There should be a form online to file. Not automatic checks from the irs

I was wondering the thing .

I also would like to hear an answer to this question! Those "lost in the system"

I only receive Social Security so will I receive a stimulus check?

I am living in my motor home I dont have a address I am a American citizen How would I receive this money

I'm on disability will I get some money from the stimulus package that's " SSI "

The question is...Seniors that no longer file taxes Do We Get A Check and will it be deposited in our monthly SS Check?

People on SSI will jot be getting the checks, we don't pay anu taxes. Its based on people that work and pay taxes. People who are on Disability may be getting a check but i do know that SSI recipients do no mot qualify.

When stimulus checks were given before, if I remember right, I don't think they were given to people on SSI. Just workers got them. I think people drawing their social security retirement will get a check but I don't think those on SSI will. Unless they're going to include us this time. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. But if by some slim chance we do, it most likely won't be as much as workers will get. I'd be grateful for anything tho.

They are trying to figure all this out.. There is no plan no book on this its all first hand for everyone be patient do your due diligence read up on everything and watch the news this still has to be passed but they are doing everything they can to take care of us Americans just remember signing all the answers starts with u but please have patience this is new to everyone

Just be patient and wait for the stimulus package to officially be approved and announced with all the details. Your questions can not be answered by anyone right now.

No there not answering these questions about disability. I'm wondering too

It's because the bill hasnt passed yet, they are fighting it out in congress and senate. We didn't get the Bush Stimulus of $600 adults $300 per child, but we didn't so i am not going to get my hopes up

Will i get the stimulus package? Im on SSDI

I definitely hope so, We on social security disability or social security retirement or SSI benefits, and our veterans are affected by this virus just like the rest, we have pre-existing conditions, we had to by emergency supplies but a great many of us like check to check, We're all Americans and if help is being given by our government we should be included in any assistance package and at the same amount

I'm on SSI will get a stimulus check

I am on SSDI will I get a stimulus check?

I on disability what would I be able to get a stimulus check

I'm on Social Security Disability will I receive a check

I think we are the ones that deserves this stimulus check because we're disable and can't work.

As a pensioner on a Disability. I look forward to any assistance that might come my way.
The only organisations who will benefit from my assistance will be the banks. At least my own debt will reduce.

On disability will I get stimulus check?

Where to sign up for stimulus check
