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.

Dont count on SSI people getting anything. SSI disable people usually get pushed aside because were no important enough to count. Most of us live 400 plus % below poverty.

Are people getting social security getting a relief check

Any updates on this payment will disabled vets and people on social security and social security disability and SSI be included in the stimulus checks this is basically costing us more during this time of isolation senior centers closed pantries are closed making it harder to keep food on the table with limited income and not able to go to drive thrus to supplement a meal if needed the copays on Medicare increased this year along with the cost which already limited our little bit of funds for medical supplies and medications please advise if our group that hasn’t been required to file taxes due to the fact that the many numerous years we worked were already taxed prior to us having to abruptly end our careers and already try to live and raise a family on a third of the income we made while working but if anyone can give us a direct answer if we are also included in this to receive some sort of relief with these stimulus checks please advise

Why is there no confirmed details. Is there going to be any stimulus money or not. They have details all over the web site. Surely something will be coming to all. Right?

I don't think so if you didn't file taxes. Sorry

Do people on SSI or ssa get the checks that the president is talking about too?

I think they should do it by census 2020 that way they will get a more accurate count for every household.

We understand that nothing has been approved yet. What people are wanting to know is, if the stimulus is approved will people on SSI, SSDI or Disabled Veteran receive the stimulus money as well? Very simple question. Very simple to answer. Yes they will or no they want? Thanks

AS FAR AS THE STIMULUS IS CONCERNED, I'VE BEEN PAYING CLOSE ATTENTION TO EVERYTHING NOT JUST THE EXTRA MONEY. ALTHOUGH, MY QUESTION IS ABOUT THE SAME AS OTHER HAVE POSTED. HOWEVER, IN A NEWS BRIEFING, PRESIDENT TRUMP DID SAY EVERY ADULT WOULD RECEIVE $1,000 AND $500 FOR EACH CHILD. ALSO, IT HAD A BREAKDOWN OF INCOME GUIDELINES AND IF YOU WERE BELOW $77,000 SOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT YOU WERE ENTITLED TO A STIMULUS CHECK. ALSO, IN A NEWS BRIEFING IT WAS SAID THAT TODAY THAT THAT AMOUNT COULD GO UP. HERE'S WHAT MOST OF US ARE WANTING TO KNOW, ARE WE GETTING ONE??? FROM EVERYTHING I READ ONLINE AND NEWSPAPER, INCLUDING THE NEWS BRIEFING, WE ARE ENTITLED. I'M ALSO UNDERSTANDING THAT THE WORKING CLASS PEOPLE/FAMILIES ARE A PRIORITY AS WE ALL ARE. BUT SOMEONE US DON'T RECEIVE MUCH TO BEGIN WITH AND I'M ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE, BY THE TIME I PAY RENT, PHONE AND BUS PASSES FOR PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION (UTILITIES ARE INCLUDED IN MY RENT), ONLY RECEIVE A SMALL AMOUNT OF FOOD STAMPS, AFTER BUYING GROCERIES, I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING LEFT AND DON'T HAVE ENOUGH TO GET BY ON AS IT IS AND I'M NOT A SPENDER, BUT HOW COULD I BE GIVEN THE LOW AMOUNT A GET MONTHLY. I'M 100% DISABLED AND NO ONE TO HELP ME AT ALL AND UNABLE TO WORK PART TIME TO MAKE ALITTLE EXTRA MONEY. THAT SAID, NOT JUST BECAUSE I'M VERY LOW INCOME BUT THERE ARE MANY IN THE SAME SITUATION. WE SHOULD BE ENTITLED TO THE STIMULUS AND IF THIS CONTINUES TO GO ON AS THEY'RE ANTICIPATING I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M GOING TO DO BECAUSE I STILL HAVE SOME OUT OF POCKET EXPENSE FOR MY MEDICINE EVEN THOUGH IT ISN'T ALOT BUT $30 IS ALOT WHEN YOU HAVE NO OTHER MEANS. SO I'M HOPEFUL WE DO RECEIVE THE $1,000 STIMULUS. WHY SHOULD BE EXCLUDED WHEN THE PRESIDENT HAS DECLARED A NATIONAL DISASTER AND THE NUMBERS OF POSITIVE ARE QUADRUPLING EVERYDAY? THAT'S ALL I KNOW IS WHAT I'VE READ IN THE PAPER AND WATCHING THE NEWS BRIEFINGS.

Exactly! I think a lot of us are asking this same questions right now. It would be nice if our government would give us an answer to this question.

I would like to thank whoever's it is that is posting the answer from the offices. It seems as if people do not see the answer they want they keep asking. People will not read your response. They just keep asking. I'm just as curious for the answer I just lost my husband so half my income is gone. I am on disability as well. But I'm having to get a job I am able to do and I will. But it is nuts for those that just wont stop and read your comment. I feel for all of you in the offices. It would be of such great help. But as you said we have to wait and see. I wish all would read your response.you should have seen the thread I read to just find this link. All they could to is argue about if one person was being rude. Its nuts. God bless and thank you for the work you all are doing.

We are well deserving of the same funds as each other American will RECIEVE fro the government, No discrimination should push the disabled population aside with all do RESPECT.

Will citizens on social security receive coronavirus relief check
